Ganesh Utsav Recipes
Ganesh Festival is my most favorite Indian Festival. In last couple of years I learned to make different type of Modak Recipes which is lord Ganesha’s favorite dish.
Here is the summary of all the prasads which I offered to my most loved deity 🙂
I made these modaks using Me Festive Cooking Accessories which you find on the below link
It is a convenient way to get great shape of the modak and saves lot of time
Making modaks requires lot of creativity and patience. I prefer making them with Modak Moulds which are available on the Me Festive website for preorders and Join Me Festive Group on FB to get updates about all the festival goodies coming up.
A modak (Marathi: मोदक, Modaka) is a sweet dumpling popular in Western and Southern India. The sweet filling inside a modak is made up of fresh grated coconut and jaggery, while the soft shell is made from rice flour, or wheat flour mixed with khava or maida flour. The dumpling can be fried or steamed. The steamed version, called ukdiche modak, is eaten hot with ghee.
Modak Pedha made from ricotta cheese and condensed milk is the easiest and delicious sweet which can be offered to Lord Ganesha during Ganpati Festival.
Fried Modak is sweet deep fried wheat dumplings stuffed with jaggery and coconut filling. These are made as offering to Lord Ganesh during Ganesh Chaturthi. They are very famous in Western Maharashtra.
Malai bhog is a dessert made from ricotta cheese and fresh cream. I made these as an offering to Lord Ganesha during Ganpati Celebrations this year.
Wanted to try a different kind of Prasad, so tried this amazing Gulkand Pedha and Mango Kalakand recipe.
Made these crunchy and melting in the mouth Anjeer Mawa Modaks as a prasad for Ganpati at a friend’s place. I had made this anjeer barfi few days back and it clicked to me that anjeer mawa modak would be a great idea.
