Panchamirtha Fruity Nuts Salad

U often get bored with even ur Fav Dessert, if it is served too frequently. Try this Dessert for a change - a Fruit Salad with IceCream this Weekend.I tweaked an old recipe by adding new ingredients and the traditional taste of it still remains (Panchamirtham taste). Panchamirtham is a 'Five Fruit Healthy Mixed Sweet' which has been served traditionally in TamilNadu Temples and  as famous as 'Tirupathy Laddu' here in TamilNadu. This recipe of mine got published in Khanakhazana.com nearly 4 years ago. U can try 'Panchamirtha' Halwa, Burfi, Juice, Smoothie, Jam, Jam Tarts,Cake,etc with the 'Five Fruit Mix' mentioned in this recipe. This will get u more interested in Cooking or make cooking fun. Enjoy Cooking!. Enjoy Food!. Enjoy Delicious Life!. BonAppetit!.

It is amazing how the panchamritham that is got from temples can be kept for weeks without it getting spoiled. Always wondered how they did that.
