Are you guys ready to welcome Ganesha ? Even I am also very excited about Ganesh festival. All the preparations are almost done. Cant wait to enjoy those 10 festive days ‘’Genesh utsav’’. Today I have you all one of the popular sweet made during Ganpati festival in Maharashtra. Modak has very special importance in the worship of lord Ganesha. It is ritual of offering 11 or 21 modaks to lord as a offering “Naivedya”
Ganesh chathurthi is celebrated all over India, but it is celebrated with more enthusiasm in Maharashtra. The Ganesh chathurthi is one festival, I have grown up with where idols of Ganesha brought to home and people are invited to pray and take prasad. I can never forget those days when we all siblings comes together, make all the decorations and lighting till late night and wait for Ganesh chathurthi .
Coming back to the recipe, Ukadiche modak is Marathi word which means ‘’Steamed modak’’. The sweet filling is made of fresh coconut and jaggery and the cover is made of rice flour. I like to use modak mould while shaping modak. It is very easy and quick method. Like the neat and proper shape which it gives. Try out this “Ukdiche modak’’ As a “naivedya” for Ganesha.
