Modak Recipe

Ganesh Chathurthi is my fav festival to celebrate. I love making some treats for ganesh and also make some hand made ganesha at home.So what was special bhog/ prasad you make for ganesh pooja??..I made 3 varieties of modak and besan ladoo. Sorry for loading this post with lot of pictures , this is wat happen when you are regular in blogging .. I have so many updates that one post is not enough. Ok let me tell you about today's recipe.

Garadu is a variety of yam available in Indian , Indori style garadu ki chaat is the famous street food which people love to have in winter season. I didn't find Garadu so used yucca for making them,you can also use ratalu for making this yummy chaat but traditionally garadu is only used which looks similar to yucca but taste may vary .When I did thali's for Madhya pradesh I wanted to try this too but didn't get a chance. I am so happy I made it and my hubby loved it. This chaat is very easy to make and chaat jiralu masala is main ingredient for making the chaat taste delicious.
