These Kesar paneer modak are for lord Ganesha. Ganesh Chaturthi is a festival celebrated in a grand way in my house. We make a small idol of lord Ganesha with clay which is worshiped for next 10 days. We prepare special food as offering for lord Ganesha and one of them are these modaks. We usually make Thengai Poorna kozhukattai or better known as Ukadiche Modak in North India. This time I also decided to make these Paneer Modak.
Read the following detailed recipe. It is super easy to make and hardly takes 15 minutes of your time. Wish you all a very Happy Ganesh Chaturthi. May Lord Ganesha bring more prosperity..
