Ganesh Chaturthi, also known as Vinayaka Chaturthi Or Vinayaka Chavithi is a Hindu festival celebrating the arrival of Lord Ganesha to earth from Kailash Parvat with his mother Parvati/Gauri.

Shree Ganesha is one of the most revered gods. He is worshipped first in every puja before starting any essential works. He is fondly known as the " Lord Of All Beginnings", "The Lord Of Wisdom" and intelligence, and he is the divine son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi.

"Ganesh Chaturthi " is the festival celebrating the rebirth of God Ganesha. The birth of the lord Ganesha has an interesting story. Lord Ganesha was created by Goddess Parvati. She molded him from the turmeric and gave it life. She then asked him to stand by the door of her palace as she want to bathe and told him not to let anyone in.  When her own husband, the great God Shiva tried to enter the human form and barred his path. Lord Shiva got angry for being denied entry into his own house and beheaded the boy in the battle between the boy and lord shiva. But he immediately felt guilty and he knew his wife would be furious. So he sent his men to bring back the head of the first creature they came across. They met an elephant with one tusk who happily sacrificed his head for the honor. Shiva bought Ganesha back to life and thus his story is considered one of rebirth and regeneration.

This is a festival celebrated for 10 days. The festival starts with purchasing puja items or accessories and the clay idols of lord Ganesha to home, or to the pandal. The Ganesh Murti is brought home or to the pandal a day before or on the same day. Families decorate a small, clean portion of the house with flowers and other colorful items before placing the idol. We place the idol, and then it and its place is decorated with flowers, plants, fruits, and other materials. Then the puja is done along with chants of holy mantras during a certain auspicious period of the day by offering the favorite prasad to the lord Ganesha.

And on the last day of the festival i.e. on the 10th day, the tradition of Ganesh Visarjan/Nimajjanam takes place. On this day immersion of lord Ganesh's idols takes place in a river, sea, or water body believing that lord Ganesha returns to Mount Kailash to join his parents Lord Shiva and Goddes Parvati. It is also believed that when the idol of the Ganesha is taken out for immersion, it also takes away with it the various obstacles of the house, and these obstacles are destroyed along with the Visarjan/Nimajjanam.

Modak ( Click Here )

As per Hindu scriptures, Lord Shiva visited Anusuya at her home in the forest along with Goddess Parvati and Lord Ganesha. On their visit, Anusuya first served Lord Ganesha food and said she would serve Lord Shiva only once Ganesha’s hunger was satiated. During the meal, she served him a single piece of sweet food. Lord Ganesha gave a sign of fullness with a loud burp after eating the sweet food. Interestingly, the moment Ganesh burped, Lord Shiva also burped not once but 21 times. As per scriptures, when Lord Shiva burped 21 times and Goddess Parvati got to know that it was Modak that satiated both of them, that's when she expressed a wish that devotees of Ganpati would always offer 21 Modaks to him. Modaks are Lord Ganesha's favorite foods so much so that he is also known as ‘Modapriya'.

Thaalikala Payasam(Click Here )

Thalikala Payasam is one of the traditional and authentic desserts of Telangana cuisine which is specially made only on Ganesh Chaturthi. Thalikalu means the Telugu word for Noodles. Payasam Means Pudding or Kheer. One can prepare this sweet either with wheat flour or even with rice flour but, we usually do this with the combination of both flours. We prepare handmade Thalikalu( noodles ) with wheat flour and then cook them in boiling water and later thickened with rice flour, sweetened with Jaggery/ sugar, and topped with roasted dry fruits. Ofcourse it takes quite a lot of time to make this dish but all the efforts pay off after tasting it.
