My collection of different modak recipes for Ganesh Chaturthi.
This year Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated on Aug 22, 2020.
Ganesha Chaturthi also called as Vinayaka chavithi is a Hindu festival celebrated to honor Lord Ganesha’s birthday.
Lord Ganesha was fond of food and modak is believed to be his most favorite food. Modak also called as modakam, kudumulu, kozhakkattai is a steamed sweet made with rice flour, coconut and jaggery. It is called Ukadiche modak in Maharasthra.
Traditionally modak is steamed, but over the years many different varieties of modak recipes have come and sold at the market. Sharing few modak recipes I have tried at my home.
