This week’s 216 #Foodiemonday blog hop theme is Vijayadashami treat or Dussehara special recipe. My contribution is this stuffed chocolate modak.

Everytime on Vijayadashami or Dassehara we usually make different kinds of sandesh, rasgulla, gulab jamun, or pantua, kheer kadam, malpua etc.
But this time sharing Ganapati Bappa special modak. Look at the idol above, Ganapati bappa is also there.
So why not modak. Try out this modak at home and enjoy the heavenly taste.
You can use dark chocolate or cocoa powder, use whatever you have. Both will be equally delicious.

Recipe

Khoya/mawa or dried milk – 4 cup

Sugar – 1 cup

Dark Chocolate – 1/2 cup, grated or finely chopped

Or

Cocoa powder – 2 tablespoon

Vanilla essence – 1 teaspoon

Peach spread – as required

Method

1. Mash the khoya/mawa or dried milk with sugar. You can use your food processor or blender to make the mixture smooth.
I have use homemade khoya or mawa. Get the method of making mawa here.

2. Heat a pan and add the khoya and sugar mixture.

3. Cook on low heat and stir continuously to avoid sticking at the bottom.

4. When the mixture about to dried up add grated dark chocolate or 2 tablespoon cocoa powder and mix well.

5. When the mixture starts to leave the sides add vanilla essence and remove from heat. Don’t over cook. Over cooking will make the mixture hard.

6. Mash the mixture again when it still warm. Mash to make it smooth.

7. If you have modak mould, fill 3/4 of mould with khoya mixture. Make hole in the middle with your finger. Fill the hole with 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon peach spread. Amount of filling depends on the size of your modak mould. See note for more option.

8. Fill the remaining space of the mould. Fill the mould tightly to get perfect shape.

9. Open the mould and take out the modak.

10. If you don’t have modal mould make small balls with the mixture.
Flatten the ball with your palm. Place peach spread in the middle. Close the edges and make laddu or give shape of a modak.

11. Serve immediately or keep in the refrigerator for later. You can keep it in the refrigerator for 6-7 days.

Note

Any jam, preserve or spread can be used instead of peach spread. Use your favourite spread for filling.

A delicious sweet with the flavour of both mango and litchi. 

Its very easy to make. You need only khoya/mawa or reduced milk, sugar and cardamom powder with mango and litchi. 

I was born and raised in Bihar. And always tasted the best litchis of the country. Yes I am taking about litchis from Muzaffarpur. Large size juicy litchis with small seed. 

Muzaffarpur is famous for Shahi litchis and is known as the Litchi Kingdom.

There are numerous beauty and health benefits of litchi fruit, from aiding weight loss and digestion to treating influenza and reducing the signs of aging. 

It is highly rich in nutrients and offers numerous benefits for your skin, hair, and health that make it all the more irresistible.
