The judges and guests were impressed after Indian Idol’s Marathi mulgi Avanti Patel’s performance on ‘Apsara aali’ and expressed the importance of that song in their lives. How can Ganpati celebrations ever be complete without Lord Ganpati’s favorite sweet Modak? The Indian Idol team hosted a modak making competition on the sets!

Avanti said, “Ganesh Chaurthi is one of the best times of the year when we indulge our taste buds to the fullest. Modaks are my favorite part of the festival but at our home we all have to prepare modaks then only do we get to eat them. Its really fun and amazing to sit together with your family and make modaks and this was exactly what happened on Indian Idol sets when my mother taught everyone to make modaks and then challenged judges and Ajay & Atul ji to prepare some. This weekend will be one of the most amazing episodes of the Indian Idol 10.”

An interesting Modak making competition happened on the sets after Avanti Patel’s mother taught the guests and judges how to prepare modaks. Avanti Patel’s mother challenged Ajay & Atul and judges Neha Kakkar, Vishal Dadlani and Anu Malik to make modaks, after which everyone tried their hands on making the traditional Maharashtrian steamed sweet.
