Ganesh Utsav 2019: After Chocolate Ganpati, This Mumbaikar Introduces 'Kheer Ganpati'

After introducing the unforgettable 'Chocolate Ganesha' 8 years ago, Rinku Rathod has come up with yet another quirky Lord Ganesha idol - 'The Payasam (Kheer) Ganesha'. A designer turned home-baker and the founder of Food Army, Rinku Rathod had made a 35 kg chocolate Ganesha and immersed it in 90 litres of milk. She then distributed the chocolate milk to underprivileged kids.

This initiative led many people to opt for edible Ganesh idol and distribute it among underprivileged kids after immersion. Rinku Rathod started taking orders for Chocolate Ganesha and this year introduced 'Kheer Ganesha' in her house. 

I was working for the last 9 months to develop a formula to make Ganesha in an ancient Indian way. Termed as amrit, kheer has been served as a prasad in our temples since time immemorial. The idol is loaded with dry fruits, milk powder, broken rice, sugar, cardamom, saffron etc. Pure, divine and blissful just like my chocolate Ganesha, this kheer ganesha will be immersed in water after which the kheer will be distributed among kids cause celebration is all about ensuring that no one sleeps empty stomach. - Rintu Rathod 

What's better than celebrating while caring for the environment and humanity at the same time?
