Janmashtami 2021 Recipe: Significance of Makhan Mishri | How To Make Makhan Mishri:

Legend has it, Lord Krishna loved makhan (white butter). This is why Mother Yashoda used to feed him makhan mishri (sweetened white butter) every day. Following the ritual, devotees prepare makhan mishri on this day for Lord Krishna.

Makhan mishri is very quick and easy to make. All you need to do is churn some fresh white butter (or get it from nearby halwai), add mishri (sugar crystals) to it, mix and offer. You can also add some chopped nuts to it to make the dish yet more delicious.
