Ganesh Chaturthi is probably every Maharashtrian’s favourite festival. Come monsoons and every Marathi household starts preparing to welcome dearest Bappa. 

Decoration ideas, themes and shopping begin weeks ahead of Ganesh Chaturthi. The reason this festival is so special is because Bappa isn’t just a god, he’s more of a friend or a family member who comes to visit us every year.

Modaks are something that all of us (Bappa included) look forward to during the Ganpati season.

Here are five different types of Modaks to try out this Ganesh Chaturthi.
