ย Happy Ganesh Chaturthiย ๐Ÿ™‚
On this auspicious occasion of Ganesha Chaturthi I finally gave a try to modak but not the regular one. I made Modak with dry fruits filling(dry fruits modak). ๐Ÿ™‚ Modak is a traditional Maharashtrian sweet dish offered to Bappa on occasion of Ganesha ย Chaturthi. Bappa loves modak hence from 108 names of his one name is Modaka Priya. ๐Ÿ˜€

ย I have been grown up in Pune and have seen the grand celebration of Bappa’s coming and visarjan. ๐Ÿ˜€ After coming to US we don’t bring Ganesha idol at our home here but the excitement of the festival will never be less. I love eating modak but never thought one day I will make them by my own. ๐Ÿ˜€ Though it’s little difficult to make modak. You need to practice to make perfect modak. Pardon me for the weird shapes as I was not having the modak mold and it was a sudden plan to make modak.
