Gopalkala is nothing but dahi poha - aval/ flattened rice/ beaten rice mixed with curd (plain yogurt), cucumber and tempered with ghee. When I was looking for posting easy Janmashtami special recipes, I found this interesting recipe while I image searched for Janmashtami prasad and adapted the recipe from here. I tried it in less quantity and loved it a lot. With cucumber and ghee tempered jeera, ghee, it was really flavorful. This can be made in a jiffy with less effort, even if you are a office goer, you can come back from office in the evening and make it for offering baby Krishna. Enjoy this prasad with your family members.

  4. It is something that we used to make it in schools (everybody would bring some ingredient), one more important component of the gopalkala was aged lemon pickle which was very dark in color. It would actually be mixed in gopalkala, fantastic and humble treat, and a community event for me!

  5. Looks divine ...nice name though.
