Modak is a popular sweet prepared on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi and offered to Ganpati. Ganesha is fond of modak and therefore different types of modak are prepared. Traditionally ukdiche modak recipe is used and modak are prepared using rice flour with the stuffing of coconut and jaggery. However, nowadays very innovative and interesting modak are prepared. There is a modak for everyone. Chocolate modak is sure to please the kids.
Modak is traditionally prepared by shaping with hands. But that calls for expertise. Nowadays modak moulds are available in the market as well as online. Modak mould can be 2 fold or 3 fold. I have a 2 fold modak mould and it is pretty simple to use. The mixture needs to be stuffed on each of the two sides. And then the modak mould is closed. The excess mixture is removed, the base is flattened and then the modak is carefully taken out. A number of modak recipes are prepared using modak mould. Let’s have a look at the ingredients required for this one:
Mawa/khoya: Recently I had some leftover milk and while preparing the lunch, simultaneously I prepared the khoya with the extra milk. And then I was on the sweet making spree. I prepared a number of easy sweet recipes using khoya such as mawa peda, gujiya, etc. Here is the recipe for homemade khoya.
Powdered Sugar: For the sweetness, powdered sugar is added. The quantity can be adjusted as per taste.
Cocoa Powder: Cocoa powder is not as same as chocolate powder. It is unsweetened and it has been used to give a chocolate flavor to the chocolate modak. Use good quality cocoa powder for maximum flavor.
Chocolate modak can be prepared for any auspicious occasion and given to kids. They will love it.
