Recipes for Vinayaka Chavithi | Ganesh Chaturthi from Andhra, Telangana & Maharashtra

How time flies! Sravana Masam is almost over and Bhadrapada Masam 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 Vinayaka Chavithi is September 13, 2018.

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 pooja is one of the two major poojas we do at home every year (the other one being Varalakshmi Vratam) and here are the recipes from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana that are offered as Vinayaka Chavithi Naivedyam.

I have also included a few recipes for Ganesh Chaturthi from Maharashtra, the state I now live in as these are what I relish at friends’ homes furing this 10-day festival.
