Mixed Dal Modak (Ganesh Chaturthi special)

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

           But today I would like to share a modak recipe made out of mixed lentil powder. Very easy to prepare, they can be made in a very short time. The end result are these yummy modak that can be offered to Lord Ganesha on this festive occasion. So check out the step by step pictorial recipe to prepare it.

  • 1 cup mixed dal powder (masoor, chana, urad, moong & tuvar dal)
  • 1/2 cup sugar, powdered
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
  • 2 tbsp. ghee
  • 2-3 tbsp. milk or as required
  • chopped nuts / sugar crystals to garnish (opt)

          Take equal quantities of each of the lentil and soak them overnight. Next day, drain and sun dry them. Then powder and keep in an airtight container for later use.

          In a pan, heat ghee and stir fry 1 cup dal powder for a minute or two till you get a nice aroma coming through.

          Switch off the flame and add the powdered sugar and cardamom powder. Mix everything well and let it cool down.

          Add milk little at a time to make the mix moist. Divide into equal portions and give a modak shape to each portion.

          Sprinkle some sugar crystals / chopped nuts and offer to Lord Ganesha. 

                  Heat ghee & stir fry dal powder for 1-2 min. or till you get  a nice aroma.

                            Switch off flame & add powdered sugar & cardamom powder. 

                                  Mix well & let it cool down.

                    Add little milk to make the mix moist. Divide into equal portions & give a 
                    modak shape to each portion.

                     Sprinkle some sugar crystals / chopped nuts & offer to Lord Ganesha.
