This is an important Ganapati Pooja performed to keep harm at bay though it is less elaborate than Ganesh Chaturthi. If it falls on a Tuesday, it is doubly auspicious. A fast is observed on this day which is broken after sighting the moon.

Things Required:

Rice powder for rangoli
Bunch of bananas and other seasonal fruits
Laddoo made of sesame seeds, jaggery, groundnut and dried coconut
Ganapati is worshipped with the offerings consisting of various delicacies which he loves to eat. The favorite of Ganapati is the laddoo made of sesame seeds, jaggery, groundnut and dried coconut and this is a must in the offerings. The katha read is the story of Ganapati as Angarakha Sankat Mochan.
Obattu is specially cooked.
