Ganpati loves kids and kids love Ganpati, so let’s combine their favourites and make an all-new mithai!

The Chocolate Modak is an all-new sweet delight in which a mouth-watering mix of chocolate, milk, cream, nuts and crushed biscuits is set in modak moulds to make soft, chocolaty modaks that anybody will love to bite into!

These soft modaks are of perfect sweetness and quite easy and quick to make too. They stay fresh in an airtight container for 5 or 6 days.
