Ukadiche Modak recipe -Here is an elegant Modak to offer Lord Ganesh as Neivedya during Ganesh Chaturthi festival. Ukadiche modak is a steamed rice flour sweet dumpling with coconut, jaggery filling, popular in Maharashtra and Southern India. Both Ukadiche Modak and fried modaks are very essential neivedya during Ganesh Chturthi festival and Sankashti Chaturthi day. Modak is distributed as prasaad after Lord Ganesh's pooja. I had already posted hand made traditional Ukadiche Modak and deep fried Talalele Modak recipe. Both taste great. Steamed modak can be prepared in two ways. First method is hand made modak and second method is using the mould. Both the modaks are prepared with almost same ingredients. Only the method of making modak is different. The taste, flavor and texture of mould made modak is similar to the hand made modak. Variety of modak moulds are available in steel and plastc, in the utensils shop. But plastic moulds are so easy to handle than steel mould. Check out Ukadiche Modak and Talalele Modak. Here is how to make modak using mould.
