Pancha means five in sanskrit. This is a neivedyam made using five ingredients. For ganesh chaturthi we mostly make kozhukkatai, modak, sundal, payasam , vadai for neivedyam. This chaturthi Panchakajjaya will also be in the neivedyam thali.
Here I have used bengal gram, sugar, dessicated coconut, sesame seeds and ghee as the main ingredients. There are other popular versions which use poha of flattened rice in this
