Bhojanīya (भोजनीय) refers to “delicious soft foods”, according to the Gaganagañjaparipṛcchā: the eighth chapter of the Mahāsaṃnipāta (a collection of Mahāyāna Buddhist Sūtras).—Accordingly: “[...] Immediately after that, by the magical presence of the Bodhisattva Gaganagañja, the rain of all kinds of delicious hard foods, soft foods (khādanīya-bhojanīya), and soups poured down; the rain of all kinds of tasty beverages poured down to the depth of a chariot’s axle; the rain of many hundred thousand colors of clothes, which are pleasant to touch like the thin and soft cloth, poured down. Then, in this world system of three thousandfold worlds, all the wretched and poor, and all hungry ghosts were satisfied”.
