The Elephant God or Ganesha or Ganapati loves food. His body image is testimony to that. So it’s common practice to feed him what he loves on his birthday. Though I do wonder what the sugar rush must do to him with so many people offering him so many sweets!

Some of his favourites are:

Besan ke Laddu(fried gram flour sweet balls), Kaju ki Barfi(Cashew nut sweet), Modak(Steamed rice dumplings with coconut filling), Boondi Laddu(Gram flour sweet balls), Pulihora(Tamarind Rice), Rava Laddu(Semolina sweet balls)

So assuming I couldn’t really make all the items I decided to make Besan Ke laddu, Modaks, Boondi Laddu, Kaju ki Barfi, Rava Laddu and Pulihora… Waaaait… that’s everything :)

I ain’t taking any credit for the cooking - All thanks to Mom and the internet… And numerous trials before the D day…

Enjoy the pictures…
