Ukadiche Modak recipe - Ukadiche modak is one of the most popular modaks and can be prepared either by using mould or by hand. This is a steamed rice flour dumpling stuffed with coconut and jaggery mixture or coconut and sugar mixture. This mixture is flavoured with cardamom powder. There can be several varieties of fillings according to individual taste such as dry fruit mixture, khawa sugar mixture, chocolate mixture, mango khawa or mawa mixture etc. 

Hand made Ukadiche Modak recipe - When modak mould is not available, ukadiche modak can be prepared by hand. The method of preparation is similar to modak made by mould.

Fried Modak recipe - Fried modak is a very popular naivedyam to Lord Ganesha and prepared in almost every house hold during the Ganesh Chaturthi festival in Maharashtra. This is usually made by using refined flour or maida. However it can also be prepared by using wheat flour. The  filling is usually made out of coconut and jaggery mixture.
