Khoya Modak

This is one recipe that never fails. A versatile one where in addition of colors, nuts or even chocolate makes it more yummier. The traditional Kozakattai and the fried one here

Gamesha festival is round the corner, I love this festival and make it a point to make lots of sweets for this occasion. For me Ganesha plays a very important role in my life. He’s a part of all my ups and downs. I love buying Ganesha Idols and  keep them in my pooja. But now we have decided to not buy(I still can’t resist the temptation :D) and do pooja for the idols we have collected over the years.

I am not very happy with the concept of Visarjan( immersing idols) so I don’t get the idols. They make me sad. 😦 I can go on and on but for now, let me hop over to the recipe.



  • Khoya (unsweetened): 200 gms
  • Condensed Milk: 200 gms
  • Ghee: a tbsp
  • Modak Mould


  1. Heat a pan, add the khoya (just mash with hands) or grate . Keep the flame to low.
  2. I had kept the flame in medium and little khoya changed color, hence the modak looked different. It tasted the same although.
  3. Add the condensed milk and keep mixing. It will loosen , then would come together like a dough.
  4. Allow to cool. Grease the modak  mould with ghee or shape them with hands.
  5. Cool and store. Stays good for 2-3 days in fridge.
