Kojagari Lakshmi Puja is dedicated to Goddess Lakshmi — goddess of wealth and prosperity and is observed mainly in Bengal , Orissa and Assam.
This is a special full moon day –and generally women observe fast whole day and offer special dishes with utmost care and purity to the Goddess Lakshmi in the evening .
Kojagari Literally means awakening of light —
- 2 coconut (korano or grated or scraped)
- 2 cups of sugar
- 100 gm of Amul Milk powder
- 1 tsp of cardamom powder
Scrape and grate the coconut, I have used blender here.
Heat a deep bottomed non-stick pan, and transfer the korano coconut, milk powder and the sugar and stir.
Now turn off the oven and transfer the mixture to a flat surface.
Start making round shaped balls and it has to be done while the mixture is hot .
The trick here is that you can keep a bowl of normal water in a bowl and use it to wet your hand while making the balls — it will ensure that your hands don’t get burned.
Keep it in a dry place.
