Name of Rangoli Design: Ganpati Rangoli Design | Simple Ganesh Rangoli 2022 – Design #11
Materials Required: To make the outline of the Ganpati rangoli, you can use rice flour, chalk powder, or white rangoli powder. Using white for outlining the Ganesh rangoli is considered sacred because white signifies purity, innocence, peace, and simplicity. Make your Ganpati rangoli freehand by taking the rangoli material between your thumb and forefingers and letting it flow freehand. If you are not comfortable freehand, use a mehndi cone or a tube.

Story behind Ganpati’s half-tusk
You might have noticed Ganpati’s half tusk. There is an interesting legend behind this. While Ganesh Ji was writing the Mahabharata, the feather he was using to write it down broke in between. Veda Vyasa who was dictating the Mahabharata did not stop. Therefore, in order to keep up with the flow of Veda Vyasa’s dictation, Ganesh Ji broke his left tusk and continued writing down the Mahabharata.

How to make rangoli coloured powder at home?
You can either buy readymade rangoli powder from the market or you can make it on your own. Traditionally women used household items from the kitchen to make rangoli/muggulu/kolam designs. Using household items, such as rice flour powder, haldi, Kumkum, gulal, spices, grains, for rangoli designing is considered auspicious.
You can use either the rice flour or salt to make the rangoli coloured powder. Take rice flour or salt in a container with lid. Add food colour and vinegar to it. Cover the container with lid and shake it well until the blend gets mixed up well. Finally spread the mixture on a clean cloth or a newspaper and let it dry.
