Bengali Shinni Prasad Recipe


Bengali Satyanarayan Prasad Recipe: Shinni

Shinni is a prasad offering made at Satyanarayan Puja as per Hindu customs and rituals. Here you will get exact details & proportion for ingredients of how to make Satyanarayan Puja Shinni prasad at home

There are two types of people, those who know what Shinni is and I am sure love having it, then there are others who don’t! For those who aren’t familiar have to first know what Satyanarayan Pujo is. It is a puja dedicated to Lord Vishnu and is most often performed on any full-moon day or poornima. Apart from other rituals, this preparation of Shinni is offered as prasad or an offering along with sweets and fruits.

How to make Shinni for Satyanarayan Pujo?

The main things to remember are, first to use one standard cup for measuring the different ingredients, like Flour, Milk, and Sugar. And second is to keep the count to an odd number. For example, 3 cups each of Flour, Sugar & Milk with 3 Bananas (bigger ones or 5/7 of the smaller ones) Now, it depends upon you how much amount of shinni prosad you wish to make. If you are making shinni for a larger gathering then you can use 5 cups measurement, where the cup in use is the standard 1 cup measurement. 

Else if you are making this for a small group then you can use the 1/2 cup measurement 3 times each for Flour, Sugar & Milk. All in all, what matters is the number of times each ingredient is measured in a cup, and that should be in an odd figure!

Wanna make Shinni for dessert? No judging please!

Now, you might be thinking why I am giving you a recipe for an offering which you probably might not need for yourself. As per the puja rituals, when it is made for puja, it has to be made in a certain proportion. However, on other occasions, it can be made by eyeballing the ingredients. But, why? Because, we all love it. It is super tasty and extremely nutritious.

I am particularly fond of this as a breakfast idea. Bananas combined with whole wheat flour  and sugar makes it super loaded with carbohydrate. A small bowl full of this can refuel me for next couple of hours.

Have you tried this recipe? I would love to hear about it.

    Using Jaggery and Batasha instead of Sugar will make it more delicious. That’s what is followed in our family during past 60+ years.

      Hi, Thank you for stopping by. I am sure your family’s way of making Shinni tastes delicious. Batasha, specially Laal Batasha makes everything delicious. However, I haven’t seen Shinni made with Jaggery yet, but I would love to. So, if you ever share it on Facebook or Instagram, do tag me.
      There’s no one way of making Shinni. I have also seen Shinni made with Sooji or Maida instead of normal Flour. But the recipe I have shared is simple, easy and most-commonly used. Something that everyone can make.

    I like the recipe the taste is just amazing,but I have one query the flour used is raw it won’t harm us in anyway?

      Hi Ishita, the Shinni prasad usually uses raw flour. If you are using fresh flour, and by that, I mean not old or something that has been lying around unused for long, you should be fine. However, if you feel squeamish at the thought of raw flour, you can dry roast it a bit. But let me tell you that taste might be a bit different due to dry roasting.
