Chocolate Modaks

The month of bhadrapada takes the festive mood  started in shravana to further heights. With bhadrapada Lord Ganesha comes to our house and whole atmosphere is that of celebration. Various sweets and special dishes  are prepared to welcome the Lord. Today I am posting the recipe of chocolate modak which is the most favourite food of Ganesha.

Linking this to festive food ganesh chaturthi @ priti's  indiankhanna

and Sharan's vinayagar-chaturthi-festival-event

and Indrani's  event @ festivals-of-india


















Ingredient :

500gm ......................compound chocolate ( Morde bitter brand)
1/2 tsp.........................stabilizer
1/4 tsp.......................butterscotch essence
modak mould for setting the chocolate






Method :





Boil water in a vessel.Keep a wider vessel on top of it and put the broken pieces of compound chocolate.Add stabilizer ( It helps in smooth melting and setting of chocolate)Cover with the thin cloth so that the melting chocolate doesn't come in contact with steam.Keep it this way for 10 to 12 minutes and then stir properly so that no lumps are left.




Add the butterscotch essence and pour in the chocolate moulds.







Keep in fridge for 20 to 25 minutes and unmould them.
Your delicious chocolate modaks are ready for Ganpathi Bappa.





In these modaks  I had added some rice crisps .

    1. Hi Meena,

      Stabilizer is a honey like thick syrup which you get in a shop that sells chocolate making material.
