Chakkuli and Laddu for Krishna Janmashtami
Ashthami is gone and forgotten now. But my posts are still slowly creeping out here.
This is a post about the puja performed at my residence on the night of the ashtami day. The puja is held during night because the auspicious moment when Krishna was born falls at night.
All the ingredients that have been gathered and prepared for the making of Chakkuli and Laddu.
Along with these eatables, ginger and jaggery is also offered which indicates medicine for mother of Krishna.
The elder member of the house performs all the puja rituals. The main ritual is offering Bilwa Patre (Bel leaves) to Lord Krishna.

(For Doggal Krishna and Kadagol Krishna, see here.)
After the puja the only agenda is hogging chakkuli and unde. There are varieties of unde/laddu that is prepared. The most common ones are prepared from rice bran flour, green gram flour, til, ground nuts, cashew nut pieces, semolina.
Chakkuli and Laddu for Krishna. :P. Psst...no eating till the puja gets over at night. Control.
