Just few days left for Ganesha Festival. So this year I thought that I will post some unique modak recipes for you in advance so that you will also enjoy the new versions of Modak in those 10 days.
As we all are huge fan of chocolates, so last year I offer chocolate modak with Khirapat in it to my bappa.It is very easy and even kids loves the taste.
The thing is you will require modak mould for setting the chocolate.
Compound dark chocolate - 500 Gms (I used MORDE brand)
Khirapat/ Panchkhadya - 3-4 tablespoons
Cardamom essence - 1-2 drops
There are two methods to melt a chocolate bar. One is to directly melt pieces of bar in a microwave for a minute or so. But I prefer to make it in second method that is double boiler.
For that Boil water in a big vessel. Keep One pan on it. Now put pieces of dark chocolate bar in it. Stir in between so that no lumps are left. When chocolates melt completely add khirapat/ Panchakhadya in it and mix well.
Now pour it in modak moulds properly. Tap the tray twice so that no air gap remains in chocolates.
Keep in refrigerator for 15 minutes. Then demould modaks. Your Modak Prasad is ready to offer.
