Everyone must have heard and also tasted Palani panchamirtham. This mixed fruit panchamirtham is very famous in temples(especially perumal koils) of eastern and central parts of Tamil Nadu. They do abishekam for the deity with this panchamirtham and when taken as prasadam, Wow!.... it's simply delicious. Our elders also offer this as a naivedyam. You can also do this when you have many fruits leftover on a function. On the whole, it's a bowl of nutrition.

Now the recipe:


Apple - 2
Orange - 2
Mosambi - 2
Mango - 2
Pomegranate - 1
Seedless dates - 100 gms.
Green grapes - 100 gms.
Paneer(black) grapes - 100 gms.
Plantain - Malai vazhai pazham or rasthali variety - 3 or 4
Kalkandu (Rock candy) - 100 gms.
Honey - 50 gms.
Ghee - 1 tablespoon
Coconut - 1 (small)


Wash all the fruits. Cut apple, plantain and mangoes to cubes. De-skin and take out the seeds from orange and mosambi.

Crush kalkandu to powder. Scrap the coconut.

Now, mix all the fruits (I have not used green grapes, as it is out of season here), alongwith kalkandu, honey, scraped coconut and ghee. Your panchamirtham is ready for offering.

Note: You can use any fruit of your choice. But for naivedyam, only these fruits are used. You can check out for restrictions on naivedyam from your elders.

You can use more kalkandu as per your taste(OR) can also use sugar.
