Weekend Snapshot: Modaks
Modaks are Indian sweets, offered to Lord Ganesha during the Ganesh Chaturthi festival. Modaks (originally sweet stuffed rice flour dumplings) are Lord Ganesha's favourite. So, modaks made of mawa(dried milk made by evaporating full cream milk) are prepared and moulded in this particular shape.
We spend this weekend visiting Ganesh Chaturthi mandaps put up all over the city and eating modaks.
