‘Modak’, Ganapati Bappa’s favourite food has a special place in our heart. During Ganesh Chaturthi, the puja always concludes with the offering of Modak as Prasad. The puja is considered incomplete without Bappa’s favourite food. Therefore Modak is a very important and popular desert dumpling in western, eastern and southern India.
Modak in its traditional and ori9ginal form is a dumpling made up of rice flour with fresh grated coconut – jaggery filling, either steamed or fried. However there are various innovative versions of modak also which is simply delicious. Mawa modak is one of such creative innovations.
Mawa Modak or Kesar Mawa Modak is a popular sweetmeat across India, especially in Maharashtra during Ganesh Chaturthi. This is basically a mawa peda shaped into a modak. This is very delicious and is found in every sweet shop Maharashtra and many cities across India during the festival of Ganesh Chaturthi. However the home made version is always special. The recipe is very simple and I am sure everyone can make it at home.
GANPATI BAPPA.... MORYAAA...
