Did You Know This About Modaks?

Modaks, those delightful dumplings beloved by Lord Ganesha, hold a fascinating secret. Besides being a symbol of wisdom and prosperity, modaks are considered a natural energy booster! The intricate combination of ingredients like jaggery, coconut, and rice flour in these sweet treats provides a quick and sustained source of energy, making them a perfect choice for festive occasions and even as a pick-me-up snack. So, as you indulge in the divine flavors of modaks, remember that they're not just delicious; they're also a tasty burst of energy!


  1. Prepare the Filling: In a pan, melt the grated jaggery on low heat. Add grated coconut and cardamom powder. Stir until the mixture thickens and leaves the sides of the pan. Allow it to cool.
  2. Make the Rice Dough: Boil water and add a pinch of salt. Gradually add rice flour while stirring continuously. Once it forms a dough-like consistency, remove it from heat.
  3. Shape the Modaks: Grease your palms with ghee and take a small portion of the rice dough. Flatten it and place a spoonful of the jaggery-coconut mixture in the center. Fold the edges to form a modak shape.
