Sabudana Paneer Modak


          Modak is a sweet dumpling that is offered to Lord Ganesha. Without it celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi is incomplete. They are traditionally prepared with rice flour and with a coconut-jaggery stuffing. 

           But let me share a modak recipe that I tried. It is made of sabudana (sago) and paneer. The stuffing is of gulkand, fresh grated coconut and chopped pistachios. The end result are these yummy modak that can be offered to Lord Ganesha this festive occasion. So check for a step by step pictorial recipe to prepare it.








  • 1/4 cup sabudana (sago), soaked for 4-5 hours
  • paneer made from 500 ml. milk
  • 2 tbsp. milk powder
  • 1/4 tsp. cardamom powder
  • 2-3 tbsp. sugar or to taste
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk

Stuffing - 

  • 1 tsp. gulkand
  • 2 tbsp. fresh grated coconut
  • 1 tbsp. chopped pistachios
  • 1 tbsp. tutti frutti
  • pinch of saffron








          For the stuffing - mix together all the ingredients (except saffron) and keep aside.

          Drain the sabudana completely and mash them slightly. Mash the paneer too. In a pan stir  together all the ingredients (except milk) for 2 minutes.

          Now add the milk and continue to stir continuously till it leaves the sides of the pan and comes together. Switch off the flame and allow it to cool down a bit. 

          Now take a modak mould and fill it with the sabudana-paneer mix. Make a cavity in the centre and fill it up with some of the stuffing.

          Make similar modak with the sabudana-paneer dough and the stuffing. Garnish with some saffron and tutti frutti and offer them to Lord Ganesha.
