Originally this is coconut ladoo recipe but I have already shared two versions  (#1 with mawa and #2 with condensed milk).

So with this recipe, I have made modak for Ganesh chaturthi.

NO COOKING required and it comes together in 10 minutes only. During the festival time you may be busy with other tasks like decorating mandap and making other prasadam recipes. That time this kind of QUICK recipes will come to the rescue.

Usually the coconut is used in stuffing for making modak, e.g. ukadiche modak and fried modak. These two types of modak preparation are time consuming and also you need some expertise for shaping.

But this recipe is one of the QUICKEST recipes. Do make it during this Ganesh mahotsav.

5) Now grease the moulds using ghee and start shaping modaks. I usually keep the mould close and fill the mixture tightly by pressing it from the bottom hole.

6) Then open the mould and carefully remove it and place on the plate.

8) I went ahead with one step further.

9) Take semi sweet chocolate in a bowl and melt that in microwave. Do remove the bowl from microwave every 10-15 seconds and stir. So until it is melted and smooth and shiny.

10) Now dip half portion of modak one by one into melted chocolate and arrange back to the plate. You can dip them completely into the chocolate. I have only covered the half portion.

Let the chocolate set. It may take about an hour or so. You can let it set in the fridge too.

Serving suggestion: During ganesh chaturthi festival, it is offered to Lord ganesha. Along with sweets, few savories are also offered to the god.
