Ganesh Chaturthi 2023: This festive season, celebrate the Lord of Beginnings with a culinary treat

The aroma of incense, the sound of bhajans, and the joyous chants of “Ganpati Bappa Morya” fill the air as India gears up for Ganesh Chaturthi. This auspicious occasion is incomplete without an array of mouth-watering sweets. This festive season, celebrate the Lord of Beginnings with a culinary treat.

Riddhi Bhagat, Founder & Concept Leader, BOB shares five delightful desserts to make your Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations even sweeter.

Petha Kheer

Petha Kheer is a delightful twist on the traditional rice kheer. It incorporates the sweetness of candied ash gourd, also known as Petha, into a creamy, milk-based dessert.


  • 200 grams Petha (candied ash gourd or winter melon)
  • 1 liter Milk
  • 1/2 cup Sugar (adjust to taste)
  • 1/4 cup Chopped nuts (almonds, cashews, pistachios)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cardamom powder
  • A pinch of Saffron strands (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons Ghee (clarified butter)
  • 2 tablespoons Raisins (optional)


Begin by grating the Petha finely or chopping it into small pieces. Heat ghee in a pan and sauté the Petha until it turns slightly golden and aromatic. Add milk and let it simmer until the Petha softens and the milk reduces. Add sugar, nuts, cardamom powder, and saffron strands. Once thickened, garnish it with more nuts and raisins. Chill and serve cold.

 Chocolate Modak

Modaks are Lord Ganesha’s favourite, and a Ganesh Chaturthi celebration is incomplete without them. Chocolate Modak is a delightful fusion of traditional and contemporary flavours.
