Rich and luscious, the Mawa Modak is a melt-in-the-mouth treat, which puts other mithai to shame with its unique taste and texture.
Although it is quite a grand fare, the good news is that it is much easier to make than the traditional modak, which requires a bit of deft handwork. This modak on the other hand just requires you to pack the mixture into the modak mould, and de-mould after a press.
Festive Occasion like Ganesh Chaturthi is the time to make umpteen varieties of Modak like
Shrikhand Modak , Chocolate Modak , Amrit Modak .....
