Ganesh Chaturthi Recipes| Vinayaka Chavithi Recipes 2013 | Vinayagar Chathurthi Recipes

Print Friendly and PDF
'Vinayaka Chavithi' also known as 'Ganesh Chaturthi' is my favourite festival and I always look forward to this festival as we celebrate it in a grand manner. In Karnataka this festival is called Gauri Ganesha where the previous day before Ganesh Chaturthi - is celebrated to worship the Goddess Gauri and we have a tradition to distribute the Vayanam(a set of items laid together) among the married ladies.
The menu differs from state to state. In Andhra, the menu would be like Undrallu, Bellam Kudumulu, Undralla PayasamChintapandu Pulihora, Medu Vada, Semiya Payasam  or Sago Kheer along with sundal, stir fry, Pappu Chaaru etc. In Karnataka we prepare Holige for Gowri Habba and on Ganesh Chaturthi we prepare Kudumulu with various fillings or Karida(Fried) Kadubu, Idli with rice rava, Undralla Payasam, sundal, Kosambari, stir fry, Kandunta Majjiga Pulusu, rasam etc. Whereas in Maharasthra Modak or Puran Poli are prepared as main sweets and along with Varan Bhaat and other items on the menu.
I am compiling various set of recipes from all the regions so that it would be convenient to choose according to your preferences.
