    Ganesh Chaturthi is a festival when people talk about Lord Ganesh’s favorite sweets, modaks and laddus. In Hyderabad, modaks are becoming more popular among residents, even though laddus are the main attraction during the festivities. Modaks are made of steamed rice flour with a filling of freshly grated coconut and jaggery. They are offered as a divine treat in homes and pandals during the nine-day celebration of Ganesh Chaturthi. Modak enthusiasts find it impossible to resist just one.

    Crafting modaks is not easy. The challenge lies in creating the perfect rice flour dough for the delicate wrap. Many households in Hyderabad are now seeking help from modak experts to ensure that these sacred treats are made perfectly.
