How to make Makhan Mishri? Janamashtmi Special Recipe

Makhan Mishri

As the name suggests, makhan i.e. butter, mishri is sugar, which means makhan mishri is the butter that has been sweetened with some sugar. Makhan mishri has its significance as it is offered to Lord Krishna and then distributed as prasad to the devotees. We all know how Lord Krishna used to love butter. And therefore makhan mishri is one of the popular dishes to be prepared on Janamashtmi. It is very easy to make makhan mishri as it is just a combination of two ingredients. Makhan, i.e. butter is prepared using the milk cream or store-bought heavy cream. Churning butter using store-bought heavy cream is simpler than making butter using the milk cream at home. However, you can use whatever is available. Often when I would visit the temples on Janamashtmi, I would get makhan mishri as prasad in very tiny earthen bowls. This year i.e. 2020, I know I will not be visiting the temples and therefore I decided to make this at home. You too do make makhan mishri this Janamashtmi and offer it to Lord Krishna. This blog tells you how to make makhan mishri at home?

Ingredients for Makhan Mishri

Makhan/Butter: Unsalted butter is needed to make makhan mishri. You can either get the unsalted butter from the store or make the same at home. Further to make the butter at home, you can use the milk cream. You can not get butter using skimmed milk or milk with lower fat content. So make sure to use full-fat milk or milk with higher fat content. To get the milk cream you just need to boil the milk and refrigerate the same. Milk cream will form a layer on the top of the milk. Just collect the milk cream. Always keep the cream in the freezer unless you plan to use it in a couple of days. Once you have 2-3 cups of cream, just defrost it. Let it come to room temperature and add in curd culture. I have seen recipes wherein curd is not added. You can skip this step but then the buttermilk obtained by churning the cream without any curd doesn’t taste good. Well, you will get butter for sure, if that’s your only plan.

Mishri: Mishri is a form of sugar easily available at the Indian grocery stores. The mishri has to be crushed coarsely and used for this recipe.You too do make makhan mishri this Janamashtmi and offer it to Lord Krishna. This blog tells you how to make makhan mishri

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
