The festival celebrating Lord Ganesha is back again. Friends and families are using the opportunity to visit each other, while many households have welcomed Lord Ganesha into their homes.
Many households are also preparing fresh modaks each day. Said to be Lord Ganesha’s favourite food, modaks are made by stuffing rice flour dumplings with a sweet mixture and then steaming them. Making modaks is an intricate, lengthy process that can take up to a couple of hours.
