Khajoor Modak

We had our 'Ganesh chaturthi' festival at Nashik this year. As I told earlier my MIL was in hospital on that day…… So this time we celebrated the festival in very simple way. But as usual there is very happy and holy atmosphere every where when Ganapati bappa comes home. You feel like very long waited guest is there at ur home. I prepared a very different modak on second day of festival. I prepared Modak without sugar or jaggery. For sweetness , I used khajoor. I think you all will love this Modak. I have added ingredients of Panchakhadya in this modak.



Ingredients
Seedless Khajoor (Dates) - 1 cup
Khuskhus (Poppy seeds) - 2 teaspoons
Grated dry coconut - 2 tablespoons
Cashew, almond and pista -1 cup
Black Raisins - 2 tablespoons
Cardamom powder - 2 teaspoons
Pure Ghee - 1 tablespoon


Procedure

In a non- stick pan, Melt ghee on slow flame add chopped nuts and coconut and saute it till it turns brown. Then add Dates in it and keep smashing it until it blends well and turns soft. Remove from heat and when cool enough put it in the mixer and grind it coarsely. Now put it in "Modak Sacha" (Mold) to give proper shape. Modak are ready for Ganpati bappa. If you want you can give a burfi or laddo shape to it.
