Chocolate Modak Recipe
A variety of Modaks, steamed and fried are offered to Ganesha on Ganesh Chaturthi and I decided to offer chocolaty ones.”Chocolava Modak” is delicious, it’s instant and looks marvellous. A very interesting, easy and no cook recipe which kids and adults will relish.

Instructions
  1. Crush the Marie biscuits into powder in the blender. Keep aside
  2. Take the Oreo biscuits and with a knife gently lift the cream layer from the centre. Crumble the biscuits with hand or in a blender. I blended both.
  3. With a spoon pour 2 tbsps. butter, milk and condensed milk on the Marie and Oreo powders. Mix nicely until crumbly. Now slowly add a little milk to bind each into a smooth dough.
  4. Meanwhile, on a double boiler, heat the cream and blend in the chocolate and Nutella to form a satiny smooth Ganache.
  5. Take the Modak mould and press a ball of the dough, neatly into the sides of the mould. Make a depression in the centre. Fill a piping bag with the chocolate Ganache and pipe it into the mould. Add 2 slivers of almonds and seal it with more dough.
  6. Gently open the mould to reveal the perfect Chocolate Modak with the lava oozing out. The Modaks when opened reveal a chocolaty interior which oozes out and is creamy to taste. Chocolate to many tastes heavenly and I always say I have a chocolate tooth.
  7. If you want to make avant-garde and exotic Modaks, try with blueberries, mascarpone cheese, peanut butter, other fruits, caramel or any ingredients that can be moulded.
Recipe Notes

 

Do not make a thin ganache or it will not let the Modak retain the shape.

In the oreo mixture, add less milkmaid and milk as it binds easily.
