Vinayaka Chavathi


I never did Vinayaka chavathi alone and this is my first vinayaka chavathi which i did i alone without the guidance of my mom or my m-law.Last year i was fortunate to celebrate the festival with my mom who did puja and read ganesh story.After coming here to gulf i never got holidays on our festivals and there is no public holidays for our festivals.So i always used to go to work and my m-law who was staying with me used to do puja and in the evening i used to eat the delicacies.Sandhya gave me the sholkas to do the puja and mom told me how to make the delicacies.



My girls

Ganesh is kept in the house for three days and later it is immersed in the water.What we usually do in hyderabad is we used to keep our Ganesh at our colony community hall where there is big ganesh installed and all the  colony members go to hussain sagar lake (tank bund) on the tenth day and do ganesh visarjan there.More info is here

PS:-I did this post in my food blog day before yesterday

  7. Happy Vianyak Chaturthi. About doing it yourself, I find that lot of the stuff just comes from memories and you know what to do. I am sure it was great fun and will be a beautiful memory for your family eventually

    Thanx and wish u the same suchismita,kids had fun and will never forget this festival for sure

  8. Happy Vinayaka chathurthi !!! All you guys happily publish the snaps of sweets without even thinking of poor souls like us 😀 😀 😀

    Thanx,come to dubai to eat those sweets

  9. Happy Ganesh Chaturthi. This time the Ramzan fasting time also coincides with the festival. Must be a feast for people in Hyderabad.

    Even i miss the festival in hyderabad and don’t mention about the food for iftar

    I miss haleem 😦

    I don’t miss haleem cause i ate it yesterday,we have a typical hyderabadi hotel here and he serves excellent biryani and haleem during ramadan

  11. No wonder your prasadam looks so good and tempting(sorry God)… are a great cook….i love the way Varunavi and Pinkuda are offering their pranam to Ganesha….you are instilling very good sanskars in them…that is beautiful and i respect it a lot.

    Thanx so much kavitha,they see me doing it and they try to do it the way i do 🙂

  12. Hope you had a great celebration time during Vinayaka Chaturthi!

    Arrangement looks so good and also yum dishes.

    Saritha, do you have lunch box recipes in your cooking blog? I have asked Monika too. I am collecting all now that school re-opens.
