Panchamrutham / My First Offering......

Panchamrutham
Panchamrutham 

Panchamrutham is a sweet offering made to God during Puja (worship) in Hindu temples ; the name translates to "Pancha" (Five),"Amruth"(Nectar) ie FIVE NECTARs . From Hindu Mythology Nectar (Amruth ) is a divine food of Gods which gives them Immortality (Amarathwam). Panchamrutham can be thus considered  as the nectar of immortality. I am sure if you ever had Panchamrutham in your life, its divine taste will be still immortal in your taste buds.
