Ganpati festival or #Ganeshotsav is a popular festival celebrated predominantly across Western and Southern India. Ganeshji is also referred to as the Elephant God and is consdered the harbinger of good luck and a Hindu deity who promises to ward off ill-luck. He goes by the name of Vinayaka, Ganapati, Pillayar etc depending on which language.

Ganesh Chaturthi falls on the holy month of Bhadrapad Shukla Chaturthi around Aug / September every year. At my house , we have this Ganpati Thali that I make and this is something that my folks love 🙂

This post gives you 12 delicious ideas to make for Ganpati collated from all my favourite blogger friends. Most of these are steamed and can be made with very little lead time. Rice flour / Modak flour / Modak pith (as its called in Marathi) is the predominant ingredient for most of these dishes.
