khoya modakmawa modak recipe | khoya modak | mawa ke modak | yellow modak with step by step photo and video recipe. modak recipes are the popular and the favourite offerings for lord ganesha on ganesh jayenthi. generally, the ukadiche modak is made and offered to lord ganesha but there are other variations to the traditional one. one such simple and easy modak recipe made without any stuffing is the mawa modak recipe made with sweetened milk solids.

i have posted quite a few modak recipes till now and i have made a habit of posting a minimum of 2-3 modak recipes every year. continuing the tradition, i am posting this year no filling modak recipe which is not only easy to make but also tastes like peda. traditional modak is filled with coconut and jaggery mixture known as pooran or hoorna. but this is a plain modak where sweetness is within the milk solids and we only shape it like modak. well, some may argue that it is not anywhere close to the traditional modak. but i would say, it is just another sweet to make our cute ganesha happy. and also it is quite easy to serve and exchange with friends and family.

furthermore, i would like to highlight some of my tips, suggestions and variations for a perfect mawa modak recipe. firstly, in this recipe, i have used milk powder to make the instant mawa or khoya. but if you have access to store-bought mawa, i would recommend using that to make things easy. secondly, i have chosen a modak shaper to shape these plain khoya modak. however, if you do have access to a smaller shaper or also if you desire to shape it manually, it completely open. lastly, if you prefer to have stuffed in between the mawa, you can add the pooran or even the dry fruit mixture.

finally, i request you to check my other simple indian sweet recipes collection with this post of mawa modak recipe. it mainly includes festival recipes like chashni wali gujiya, kala jamun, modak, sugar free modak, kesar burfi, gulab jamun, elayappam, aate ki pinni, moong dal ladoo, black halwa. further to these i would also like to highlight my other detailed recipes collection like,
