Modak is believed to be one of the favourite sweets of Lord Ganesha. Also known as Kudumu, Kadubu, Modakam or Kozhukattai in regional languages, these are sweet stuffed dumplings offered to Lord Ganesha as prasad/ naivedyam during Ganesh Chathurthi puja.

Ganesh Chaturthi is also known as Vinayaka Chaturthi is a festival celebrating the birth of Bhagwan Ganesha. Hindus believe that Ganesha loves modak hence he is also called modakpriya, one of the 108 names mentioned in the Ganesha Ashtothram.
