Festivals in India are feast-ive! We truly enjoy the enriching cultural heritage that comes with each festival.
From the vibrant colors, to the sensational and sugary variety of foods – I love it all! On the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi, I made Ravva Laddo to offer to my cute Ganapati Bappa! Here is a simple recipe to make laddos.
