For Ganesh Charurthi, we Tamilians make the Lords favorite delicacy called modak at home, as a part of the Prasad or blessings from the God. These are sweet dumplings made from rice flour, filled with coconut shreds, and jaggery seasoned with elaichi (cardamom powder). Needless to say, mom’s a fantastic cook, and despite not having a sweet-tooth, I gladly consume a few pieces of the savory without second thoughts.
