Ganesh Chaturthi is here and everyone is too excited about it. Apart from welcoming “Bappa” and gearing up for the 10-day-long celebrations, people are rustling up mouth-watering food and especially modak. This traditional sweet treat happens to be Lord Ganesh’s favourite. And hence, it’s a mandate during this festival. Seems like Ayushmann Khurrana’s wife Tahira Kashyap is no different. After all, it’s her food diaries that caught our attention today. She shared a picture of lip-smacking modaks on Instagram Stories. The special thing about it is that the sweet delights have been made by her dearest daughter Varushka. The gorgeous brown modak garnished with grated coconut look super tasty. Sharing a snap of the plate, Tahira wrote, “Daughter made these,” and tagged Ayushmann.
Tahira Kashyap has also added another picture on Instagram Stories. Of course, it featured modaks. For this, she thanked Khushbu Soni and mentioned, “Thank you for the yummiest homemade modaks.”
