Ganesh Chaturthi Recipes

Ganesh Chaturthi starts on the fourth day of the Bhadrapada month, which is a 10-day festival, and it falls in the months of August or September, according to the Gregorian calendar. Gowri and Ganesh idols are installed and worshipped in several households and localities in India, and it is marked by having a grand feast with one and all.

Special savories are prepared by the women folk on this day. These are first offered to Lord Ganesh as Naivedyam and then partaken by all in the family.

Modak, or kadubu, is one such special dish that is especially prepared on the Ganesh Chaturthi day. It is believed that modak is Lord Ganesh's favourite dish and hence each household makes sure to prepare this on the festival day. Other sweets and snacks like karjikai, puran poli, mirchi bajji, potato bajji, chakli, etc., are also prepared and relished by family and friends during the festival days.
