As you know that Modak is lord ganesha’s most favorite food. Hence it is offered to him during the ganpati festival. I have already shared the many modak recipes.

In Maharashtra, the modak made from mawa is known as khavyache modak. It is not stuffed like I shared today. usually the sweetened khoya mixture is made and the shaped into modak using the mould.
