Ganesh Utsav is around the corner and its time to please the Lord with different types of sweet dishes. Lord Ganesh, who is also known as the Lord of new beginnings, will be worshipped across the country on September 13 while the festival will end on September 23 after 10 days of celebration.

Rangolis, decorations, pandals, murti isthapna and Ganpati songs are the main attraction of the festival but modak plays the most significant role when it comes to impressing our Vighnaharta. Modak is the sweet steamed dumplings made out of refined flour and stuffed with coconut and jaggery.

Traditionally the fillings inside the modak used to be just coconut and jaggery but as the time passed, people added different flavours to it. There are many varieties of modak that are now available in markets like chocolate modak, dry fruit modak and mango modak. But whats better than offering our Lord Ganesha self-made sweets?

Here are the recipes for different varieties of Ganesha’s favourite modak:

  1. Traditional modak with coconut and jaggery

2. Sooji modak

3. Chocolate modak

4. Dry fruits modak
