Vinakayar Chaturthi celebration at my mom's place with lots of god's favorite prasadam.
Ganesha Chaturthi also known as Vinayaka Chaturthi  is the Hindu festival celebrated on the occasion of birthday of Lord Ganesha. The elephant headed son of Shiva and Parvati, who is believed to bestow his presence on earth for all his devotees in the duration of this festival. It is the day Shiva declared his son Ganesha as superior to all the gods.  Ganesha is widely worshipped as the god of wisdom, prosperity and good fortune and traditionally invoked at the beginning of any new venture or at the start of travel. While celebrated all over India, it is most elaborate in Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Goa.

The festival, also known as Ganeshotsav ("festival of Ganesha") is observed in the Hindu calendar month of Bhaadrapada, starting on the shukla chaturthi (fourth day of the waxing moon period). The festival lasts for 10 days, ending on Anant Chaturdashi (fourteenth day of the waxing moon period). On the 11th day, the image/Idol is taken through the streets in a procession accompanied with dancing, singing, to be immersed in a river or the sea symbolizing a ritual see-off of the Lord in his journey towards his abode in Kailash while taking away with him the misfortunes of all man. All join in this final procession shouting "Ganapathi Bappa Morya, Purchya Varshi Laukariya" (O father Ganesha, come again early next year). After the final offering of coconuts, flowers and camphor is made, people carry the idol to the river to immerse it.

On this auspicious day of Ganesh Chaturthi we bring some special recipes which as being offered as Prasadam / Naivedhyam to him.....
