Coconut modak with Raisins Filling/ 
Ganesh Chaturthi Special/
Kids Special
Hi Friends,
After making so many recipes to offer Prasad to Ganesh ji, on the last day i wanted to make modak for him. As i tried earlier also coconut ladoo with condense milk that were super delicious but i was not satisfied with the color and shape. I wanted real modak shape in white color. So i chose coconut and used my new bought mold (which i bought only for Ganesh ji :). 
I was quite happy to see the results. Modak came out so tasty. It was shining white with a dash of kesar. I added the nice crunch by using normal granulated sugar instead of powdered sugar. I loved them and i hope Ganesh ji also like it. 

Coconut grated/shredded- 1 cup
Milk powder- 1 tbsp
sugar- 3/4 cup
Milk- half cup
Ghee- 1 tsp
Cardamom- 4
Kishmish-2-3 tsp for filling

Gather your ingredients

take a wide pan or kadai and add ghee in it

heat it on medium flame

now add shredded or grated coconut

 start roasting it

within a minute it will be done

now throw in milk powder

and sugar

all added

now crushed cardamom seeds

and at last the milk

mix everything well and keep on stirring

within a minute it will be done

grease lightly your modak mold

i have use a ice cream scoop for measurement, you can take any spoon  

take a scoop of dough

put it on the hand

flatten it a bit

keep few raisin pieces

close from all sides 

roll it

now put it in the mold

close the mold

remove extra dough which came our from sides

open it


i was delighted to see my modak 

all done

small dough left at last so i made this small peda

all modak dotted with kesar

Ready to offer Ganesh ji

modak offered to Ganesh ji before his visarjan

  1. Milk powder will do binding, gives texture to modak, but if you want to skip it then you can go ahead but then taste and texture will be different.
  2. Instead of cardamom you can try kesar/saffron.
  3. You can make them round shape too but on the last day i wanted to offer white modak so i used the mold and shaped them as modak.
  4. You can use other dry fruits for filling but i think raisins makes the perfect filling. You can make them without filling too.
