Satyanarayana Pooja Prasadam - Sapada Bhaksya

This prasadam is prepared only for Satyanarayana Pooja by the people of Havyaka community of Dakshina Kannada. Though the ingredients used are easily available, getting the right measure of each ingredient is a bit of work.


Whole Wheat Flour - 1 1/4 weight measure
Milk - 1 1/4 weight measure
Well Ripe Bananas, chopped - 1 1/4 weight measure
Sugar - 1 1/4 weight measure
Ghee - 1 1/4 weight measure

Kitchen weighing scale

  1. Take a measuring container (cup/glass/large tumbler) depending on the quantity of prasadam required. I used a container large enough to fill 4 cups of flour. So for 1 1/4 weight measure, I used 1 container (4 cups) + 1/4 container (1 cup) of whole wheat flour.
  2. Measure the quantity of flour in a kitchen scale.
  3. Now measure all the other ingredients such that each ingredient weighs the same as the measured flour.
  4. Keep all the measured ingredients aside, separately.


  1. Take ghee a thick bottomed wok.
  2. When the ghee melts, add chopped banana.
  3. Fry these banana pieces until they turn golden brown.
  4. Now add flour and mix well. Keep stirring continuosly until the color of the flour changes to brown.
  5. Add sugar and quickly mix together.
  6. Imeediately add milk while stirring continuosuly to avoid any lumps.
  7. Keep stirring until it forms a lump.
  8. Turn off the heat.
  9. Make small balls of this prasadam.
