In the worship of Ganapati, the god of riddhi siddhi, modaks are especially consumed as prasad. Modak Ganapati is said to love it very much. But mythological beliefs are hidden behind it. According to the Puranas, ganapati and parshuram were at war when one of Ganapati's teeth was broken. This made it difficult for them to eat. In view of their distress, some dishes were prepared that were easy to eat and did not cause toothache. One of the same dishes was modak. Modak is very soft to eat. It is believed that Shri Ganesh aliked modak and since then he has become his favourite sweet. So the devotees began to enjoy modaks to please Ganesha. However, modak saith in some mythological theology. Modak means happiness or happiness. Ganesha is considered to be the God of happiness and good deeds, so he is also offered modaks.
