Ganesh Chaturthi | Vinayaka Chavithi Naivedyam Recipes

How time flies! Shravana Maasam is almost over and Bhadrapada Maasam is just around the corner. Bhadrapad means Vinayaka Chavithi (called Ganesh Chaturthi in Maharashtra and Pillaiyar Chavithi in Tamil Nadu) and all the excitement associated with it. This year the date for this festival is August 25, 2017.

The 10 days of Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations are very special in Mumbai. Here, in my city, it is a community festival with beautiful Ganesha idols worshipped all around the city. It is a magical time where this Maximum City is immerses itself in the worshipping Ganesha as Vighnaharta, the Destroyer of All Obstacles.

Vinayaka Chavithi (Ganesh Chaturthi) is one of the major poojas we do at home and here are the recipes from Andhra Pradesh that are offered as Vinayaka Chavithi Naivedyam.
