India is a land where people from various communities live together. Although they belong to different cultures, everyone in the country come together and celebrates each other’s festival with delight. Prasadam or the divine feast is what we get in the holy places as a blessing from the god. Just like the way we all have different gods that we pray to, in the same way, we have different kinds of Prasad offered by different religious groups. The entire country relishes a different kind of delicacies in every other festival. Let us now have a look at these amazing Prasad and drool over them.
