CC Madhya 12.167


prabhu kahe, — more deha’ lāphrā-vyañjane
piṭhā-pānā, amṛta-guṭikā deha’ bhakta-gaṇe


prabhu kahe — the Lord said; more — unto Me; deha’ — give; lāphrā-vyañjane — ordinary vegetable; piṭhā-pānā — cakes and sweet rice; amṛta-guṭikā — and the preparation named amṛta-guṭikā; deha’ — deliver; bhakta-gaṇe — to the devotees.


Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu said, “You can give Me the ordinary vegetable known as lāphrā-vyañjana, and you may deliver to all the devotees better preparations like cakes, sweet rice and amṛta-guṭikā.”


Lāphrā-vyañjana is a combination of several green vegetables all mixed together. It is often mixed with rice and delivered to poor men. Amṛta-guṭikā is a preparation of thick purī mixed with condensed milk. It is also known as amṛta-rasāvalī.
