Panagam/Panakam

Panakam is one of the important neivadyam items for Ramanavami. This year Ramanavami falls on March 28th 2015. It is customary to make Panakam, Neermor, Kosumbari and Vada  for neivedyam.
Panakam simple and easy to make drink that is a very good coolant as summer month approaches. This was the coco-cola and pepsi of that time, but a healthy one.
