It's a much awaited month for devotees of Lord Ganesha as he arrives in their homes and hearths in one day from now. The idol of Ganesh is the highlight Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations but the delicious treats on offer come a close second. From laddoos to chakklis, the list of Ganpati special eats are a long and winding one. But first, there are modaks.
