Significance of Makhan Mishri Bhog
On the day of Janmashtami, at the time of birth of Shri Krishna, at 12 o’clock in the night, Makhan-mishri is first offered to him. It is believed that Lord Krishna is very fond of white butter. That’s why his mother used to feed him butter and sugar candy every day. Following these customs, on the day of Janmashtami, devotees prepare bhog of butter and sugar candy in the joy of the birth of Kanha ji. Butter Mishri Bhog is very quick and easy to make. There is no need to do much for this. Simply, mixing sugar candy in white butter can be offered to Kanha ji. (makhan mishri recipe)
