Ganesh Chaturthi is just around the corner and preparations are at full swing to welcome Lord Ganesha - the God of wisdom, prosperity and good fortune. Also referred to as Vinayaka Chaturthi, it is a 10-day affair that starts with the installation of Ganesha idol at homes, offices and public pandals, followed by aarti, daily prayers, vrat, bhog and grand celebrations across India (especially in Maharashtra). This year, the festival commences on 22nd August and ends with visarjan (immersion of the Ganesha idol) on September 1.

Food plays a major role in Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations. Several people prepare a wide array of traditional sweetmeats to offer to the beloved son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. However, one common dish that the festival seems incomplete without is delectable modak. Believed to be the favourite mithai of Lord Ganesha, modak holds a constant place in every devotee's bhog thaali.

Hence, we bring you a quick and easy recipe of traditional rice modak, which you find at sweet shops and temple during this festive season. All you need is just 10 minutes to whip up a plate of appetising modak with this particular recipe.
