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.
Crush the Marie biscuits into powder in the blender. Keep aside
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.
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.
Meanwhile, on a double boiler, heat the cream and blend in the chocolate and Nutella to form a satiny smooth Ganache.
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.
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.
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.
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.
