Daddojanam 700


Daddojanam is one of Naivedyam offered in Durga Navaratri (Dasara) days.

In temples this Daddojanam is served as prasadam. But they don't use green chillies. So to get the temple prasadam taste, use red chillies.

In Tirupathi they use black pepper instead of red chillies or green chillies.

For the prasadam taste avoid Ginger, Cucumber and Carrot and serve the dish at room temperature.

Do not forget to add the right quantity of salt. As we use black pepper which is mild in hotness when compared with red or green chillies, the right amount of salt only will give the taste to this Daddojanam. As this Daddojanam is served at room temperature, it is essential to use fresh curd otherwise the dish within no time becomes sour.

There is no need to eat salad separately as we can add raw carrot, cucumber or Cashews or Pomegranate seeds.

In summer season this dish tastes excellent as curd is natural coolant.
