Koya Modak Recipe - Mawa Modak Recipe - Mawa Saffron modak recipe - Saffron Koya Modak recipe - Easy Ganesh chaturthi recipes - Pooja recipe

Koya / Mawa modak is very simple and rich recipe.  I had this mold for a while but never get a chance to  use it :-) Because my previous helper is good in getting modak shape in hand.. When I saw this recipe in the internet as well as in TV I loved the cute shape of it and you can get that only with mold. So finally I can use my mold!. If you have Mawa this is a very fast recipe. I normally buy unsweeten mawa from India so I had this on hand .. Since this year Chathurthi fell during working day this recipe was perfect fit too

Khoya / Mawa - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Ghee- to grease
Saffron - a pinch (optional)


Melt Khoya in low flame
Mix in Saffron into hot 2 teaspoon milk. Add this to melted mawa / Koya. Add sugar, Cardamom powder. Continue to stir till when you roll the Koya you can get nice ball.  Switch it off and make a nice a dough
Grease the mould with ghee. Fill it with Koya mixture 
Smoothen the bottom portion. Unmould it carefully and grease again before you stuff next one
Enjoy! so simple right?
