Ganpati Festival is incomplete without modak. I am posting a very easy recipe of khava modak. These can be made very easily at home in less than 30 minutes & tastes awesome.
250 gms khava
Powdered Sugar -1/4 of khava
Few strands of saffron (optional)
2 tsp ghee
Modak shape small mould
Crumble khave with hands. Heat it in a pan on very low flame. Khava will melt.
Take 1tsp ghee in pan. On low flame start roasting khava. Then mix the powdered sugar in it. When the sugar is added the khava will be in liquid form. Keep roasting on low flame taking care that it does not burn below the pan.
After about 6-7 minutes till will start giving aroma. Now mix cardamom powder & saffron strands. The khava mixture will start to thicken & leave the sides on the pan.
Put a little mixture on plate & let it cool. Roll into round. If it is able to roll then khava mixture is ready. Turn off the gas & allow the mixture to cool.
When it is luke warm start making modaks. Grease the modak mould.
Make a small ball & put it in the modak mould.
See to it that there are no cracks in the ball. Press it lightly so that it takes the exact shape of modak. Carefully open it & demould the modak.
Delicious khava modak is ready.
