Modak - Chaturthi Special

  

You like Momos...  I like Modaks.

We aren't same bro...


The dish we prepare once in a year. Mainly its roots were founded from Maharashtra, it’s the dish which is nearest to the heart of every Marathi people. Its craze isn't limited up to there, the only thing is its name & preparation method changes accordingly through the different states. It's sweetness & taste made even Gods to fall for it. We Indians belongs to such a heritage where the different cultures and their different ways are available for celebrating festival but the feeling remains constant.

 

Change in region brings change in names too.

 

In Marathi & Hindi - Modak

In Tamil - Kozhukattai

In Telugu - Kudumu

In Kannada - Kadubu

 

Initially, we will discuss about preparation.

 

We can prepare this dish in two ways.

 

1. Deep fry (Fried Modak)

2. Steamed Modak (similar to Momos, in modern term we can called it sweet Momos)

 

Modak - Chaturthi Special 

 

1. Prepare fine kneaded dough of wheat & maida (if needed), once done make small chapatis.

2. One can use verities of stuffing like Puran, Shredded Coconut, Banana, etc. There are many types of stuffing available. Even one can make chocolate modaks also.

 

As compared to Ukadiche Modak (Steamed one), the fried Modaks have more demand during Lord Ganesh Chaturthi festival. In our old mythology, purans & granthas where it is mentioned that Lord Ganesha loves Modak. Goddess Mata Parvati used to make it for him. These Modak would fulfil his appetite during his hunger. Also, Mushaka (his companion) used to take it for his Lord Ganesh and eat for his appetite too. This gives us idea that even God can't stop him to eat these delicious modak .

One can enjoy this taste only on Ganesh Chaturthi festival. If you miss modak then you miss the delicious taste with your tongue.  So, if you really want to have this modak then have a plan during Ganesh festival in Maharastra. 

 

Hope you have enjoyed this blog and thinking about modak. So go get up and have a taste of it. πŸ˜‡πŸ˜…
