Ramanavami falls today thats 31st March 2012. Ramanavami is celebrated on the occasion of birthday of Lord Rama. It falls on the 9th day of Shukla Paksha.

On this day prayers are done and visit to Lord Rama temple. Observe fast/upavasam. Special pooja is performed at home and temples offering Panagam/Panaka, Neer Mor/Buttermilk and Kosambari as prasadams to Lord. Ladies will exchange kumkum with the prasadams with neighbours.

In Tamilnadu only Panagam is prepared. In Karnataka Panaka, Neer Mor and Kosambari is prepared.

Heres the simple and easy recipes for this.

Rose Milk is very tasty and simple drink. This is a favourite drink of my 16months old son for its colour and taste:-) Its very refreshing.

I was thinking Rose Milk is very difficult and long process to make so always having it in a restuarant. But my friend here told me Rose syrup is available in super market and its easy to make. Now am very happy after I bought my family likes it a lot and drink daily.

Take 2 tspns rose syrup(store bought sugar added some are without sugar too) in a glass and pour cold milk of your choice(Normal, Low fat, skimmed milk) stir well and serve. For children you can garnish few choco chips.
