Modak is believed to be the favorite sweets of Lord Ganesha. Ganesh Chaturthi or Vinayaka Chaturthi is a popular Hindu festival that celebrates the birth of Lord Ganesha. Ganesh Chaturthi is the birth of the elephant-headed deity Ganesha. Lord Ganesh is believed to be the god of prosperity and wisdom. He is considered as Vighnaharta, who removes all obstacles in life.
Hindus believe that Ganesha loves Modak hence he is also called Modakpriya. The specialty of this festival is the ‘Modaks’ which is the sweet dumpling considered as the favorite food of Lord Ganesha. He is also worshipped at the beginning of every work in Sanatana Dharma.
