Ganesh Chaturthi 2023: A Flavorful Celebration with Our Homemade Modaks

what better way to honor Lord Ganesha than by indulging in the traditional and mouthwatering delicacy – Homemade Modaks? This year, we, as a small startup, are excited to share a special modak recipe with you, including all the details you need to craft these delectable treats. Ganesh Chaturthi, the vibrant festival that marks the birth of Lord Ganesha, is just around the corner in 2023. It’s that time of the year when we come together with family and friends to celebrate and offer our devotion to the elephant-headed god.


Ingredients You’ll Need:

For the Outer Covering:

  • 1 cup Rice Flour
  • 1 cup Water
  • A pinch of Salt

For the Sweet Filling:

  • 1 cup Grated Coconut
  • 1/2 cup Jaggery (finely grated)
  • 1/4 tsp Cardamom Powder
  • A handful of Chopped Nuts (optional)
  • Ghee (for greasing)


  • Steamer or Pressure Cooker
  • Modak Moulds (if available)

Steps to Make Our Homemade Modaks:

Step 1: Prepare the Outer Covering

  1. Boil one cup of water in a pan and add a pinch of salt to it.
  2. Once the water starts boiling, lower the heat and gradually add one cup of rice flour while continuously stirring to avoid lumps.
  3. Keep stirring until the mixture thickens and leaves the sides of the pan. This will form the dough for the outer covering. Remove it from heat.

Step 2: Shape the Outer Covering

  1. Allow the dough to cool slightly and then knead it into a smooth, pliable dough.
  2. Grease your palms with a little ghee to prevent sticking, and divide the dough into small, equal-sized balls.
  3. If you have modak moulds, it’s time to use them! Grease the moulds with ghee and press a ball of dough into each mould, making sure to create a hollow space in the center for the filling.

Step 3: Prepare the Sweet Filling

  1. In a separate pan, melt the grated jaggery on low heat.
  2. Add the grated coconut and cardamom powder to the melted jaggery and mix well. You can also toss in some chopped nuts for added crunch and flavor.
  3. Cook the mixture on low heat, stirring continuously, until it thickens and comes together as a cohesive mixture. Remove from heat.

Step 4: Assemble and Steam

  1. Take a portion of the sweet filling and place it inside the hollow space of the rice flour dough in the mould.
  2. Seal the modaks by pinching the edges of the dough together. If you don’t have moulds, you can shape the modaks by hand into a pyramid-like structure.
  3. Place the modaks in a greased steamer or pressure cooker, and steam them for about 10-12 minutes until they are cooked through and become slightly translucent.

Step 5: Serve and Enjoy!

  1. Once the modaks are steamed, allow them to cool for a few minutes before carefully removing them from the moulds.
  2. Your homemade modaks are ready to be offered to Lord Ganesha or enjoyed as a delectable treat with your loved ones.
