SWEET MOTHAGAM- COCONUT MOTHAGAM- VELLA KOZHUKKATTAI RECIPE----SPICY MOTHAGAM- ULUNTHU KOZHUKKATTAI-UPPU KOZHUKKATTAI RECIPE

***************Happy Ganesh Chaturthi***************

It marks the birthday of Lord Ganesh. Very much celebrated in an auspicious manner in almost all southern & south western parts of India.He is one of the most important dieties of Hindu religion & whenever something starts he is worshipped as a prelude.Another important issue is that Ganapathy is more fond of Modaks or Mothagam which i would like to present to you all at this auspicious moment.Hope you all enjoy.

Ganapathy is mostly celebrated with other dishes like Payasam,vada apart from Modaks or mothagam. For more details about Ganesh chathurthi please do click here.

Moreover i am back from my Eurotrip & am back in business.Lots of exciting recipees to follow up.
