Print Friendly and PDF
'Vinayaka Chavithi' also known as 'Ganesh Chaturthi' is on 5th September. I have mentioned many times before that this is one festival I always look forward to from my childhood. It is a major festival in south India and Maharashtra. In Karnataka this festival is called as 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. 
I am reposing my recipe collection  with few updated recipes so that it is helpful to plan the menu.
The menu differs from state to state. In Andhra, the menu would be like UndralluBellam KudumuluUndralla PayasamChintapandu PulihoraMedu VadaSemiya 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 ravaUndralla 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.
