Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 1.283
raghunātha-dāsa nityānanda-pāśe gelā
ciḍā-dadhi-mahotsava tāhāńi karilā
raghunātha-dāsa — Raghunātha dāsa; nityānanda — Lord Nityānanda; pāśe — near; gelā — went; ciḍā — chipped rice; dadhi — curd; mahotsava — festival; tāhāńi — there; karilā — performed.
At this time, Raghunātha dāsa approached Śrī Nityānanda Prabhu and, according to His order, prepared a feast and distributed prasādam composed of chipped rice and curd.
There is a special preparation in Bengal wherein chipped rice is mixed with curd and sometimes with sandeśa and mango. It is a very palatable food offered to the Deity and then distributed to the public. Raghunātha dāsa Gosvāmī, who was a householder at this time, met Nityānanda Prabhu. According to His advice, he executed this festival of dadhi-ciḍā-prasāda.
