Prasadam-------Limbehanni(Lemon/Nimbu) Panaka and Kosambri

As i said earlier this is a must prasadam for Ramanavmi .In all Ramji temples too in karnataka during Ramnavmi this along with Kosambri is the main prasad.This is nothing but simple lemon juice but really when prepared during that day somehow it taste very amazing.

Kosambri is mainly prepared with hesarubele(Moondal/green gram dal) .In many functions and festivals it is prepared and keep it as prasad too.
