5 original modak recipes to savour on Ganesh Chaturthi in 2022

In the year 2022, Ganesh Chaturthi will be celebrated for ten days beginning on August 31. During this time, modaks, Lord Ganesha’s favourite dessert in a variety of flavours, can be enjoyed. The thrill of eating modaks, which are thought to have originated in the state of Maharashtra, is the same regardless of their various names, including mothagam, kozhukattai, modhaka, kadubu in Kannada, and kudumu. The ingredients and cooking techniques may differ slightly as well.

There are several creative modak recipes that may be manufactured with the aid of modak moulds that are readily available in the market. Ukadiche modak, the most popular modak, is formed with rice flour and filled with coconut and jaggery before being steamed. There is a modak for everyone, whether you favour the flavour of chocolate, other Indian sweets like rasmalai, or lots of crunchy nuts in your dessert.

Here are some suggestions from Chef Suresh, Executive Chef at Clarks Exotica, if you’re seeking for original modak meals to try during the ongoing Ganeshotsav.
