Prasad; Food Offered to Gods
Prasad; Food Offered to Gods

Offering food to the Gods is the most important ritual and the food offered to the Gods is called Prasad. The prasad is mostly milk and fruit. Are these the favourite foods of Gods or is there some other reason behind it? I also want to know the special food offerings made to Hindu Gods and Goddesses.

Vaishno Devi prasad is enclosed in a plastic packet that contains a mixture of moori (puffed rice), shredded coconut, sugar balls and pieces of dried apple.

The food items in Mahaprasad of Puri are of different varieties and composition and mainly the number of food items being cooked count to be 56 also known as the `Chappan Bhog`.

Hi Abhinav, as far as I know `Chappan Bhog` is given to Lord Krishna on Janmashtami.
