Let’s talk about the ingredients for Modak recipe

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.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
