Each person has his or her own choice of foods. The same goes for our Gods and Goddesses as well. Preparing foods and offering them to the deities on auspicious days like Ganesh Chaturthi, Sankranti or Diwali is one of the numerous rituals of any festival. It gives immense pleasure when you prepare the favourite foods for your deities.
Lakshmi and Ganesh puja takes place in every household in India, especially during the Diwali time. This puja brings wealth, harmony, prosperity, well-being and abundance of happiness in our lives. Lakshmi showers her blessings on the day of Diwali and hence every house is cleaned weeks ahead of the festival.
Ganesha is worshipped on this day and especially before starting any new venture. Ganesha also represents intelligence, wisdom and success. During this puja, you must offer the foods that are liked by both these deities.
For example, Lakshmi prefers any food stuff made with rice and Ganesha is believed to be a laddoo lover. So, keeping these things in mind, a list has been made which can help you know what to prepare during this Diwali to appease Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi.
