  • Vegan chocolate modaks to sweeten your Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations

    The country is celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi — a festival that is incomplete without modaks — with much fanfare. A delight for those with (and even without) a sweet tooth, modaks are believed to have a mythological significance, too. But who said modak, while keeping its sweetness intact, cannot be given a healthy makeover? And if you have been looking for such a recipe, celebrity trainer Yasmin Karachiwala has the perfect one for you.

    Taking to Instagram, she shared the recipe for a healthy and easy-to-make chocolate modak. “I love Bounty chocolate! Do you?,” she captioned the post adding, “I figured this year why not greet Ganpati Bappa with some Bounty-inspired modaks.” “So for everyone welcoming him home,” you can prepare this quick and easy recipe, she wrote further.

    “These modaks are vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free too and you can definitely enjoy them guilt-free!!” Karachiwala wrote, before sharing the recipe. Take a look.

    • 1 ½ cups (262g) dark compound chocolate
    • 3 tablespoons fresh grated coconut
    • 1 tablespoon chopped almonds
    • 1 tablespoon chopped cashews
    • 1 tablespoon condensed milk
    • 3 tablespoons nutella
    Steps In Making Chocolate Modak
    1. Melt the chocolate using double boiler method. Take a vessel and fill 1/3 of it with water, put it on medium flame. Now place a large bowl on it, make sure it doesn’t touch the water.
    2. In it add chopped chocolate and keep stirring it continuously till it melts. Now let it cool down for 5-7 minutes.
    3. For the chocolate filling, take a bowl and add freshly grated coconut, chopped almonds, chopped cashews and condensed milk and mix till well combined.
    4. In a piping bag pour the melted chocolate. Now cut the tip of the piping bag with scissors and fill the modak moulds till half.
    5. Now add some coconut stuffing in the centre of every mould and above that put more melted chocolate and fill it till the top.
    6. Tap the mould 3-4 times to remove any air bubbles.
    7. Similarly fill the second mould with chocolate and add nutella in the centre instead of coconut filling.
    8. Let the chocolate moulds set in the refrigerator for upto 10 minutes or until firm.
    9. Gently remove the chocolate from the moulds by pressing the chocolate outside.
    10. Store it in the refrigerator for upto 2 weeks.

    Vegan chocolate modaks are a delightful twist on a traditional treat. Here’s a recipe to sweeten your Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations: Vegan Chocolate Modaks Recipe

    • 1 cup rice flour
    • 1 cup water
    • 1 tbsp coconut oil
    • Pinch of salt
    • 1/2 cup grated jaggery (or coconut sugar)
    • 1/2 cup coconut milk
    • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
    • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
    • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
    • Vegan chocolate chips or dark chocolate (optional, for garnish)
    1. Prepare the Dough:
      • In a saucepan, heat water and coconut oil until it boils.
      • Lower the heat, add rice flour and salt, and mix well until combined.
      • Cover and cook on low heat for 2-3 minutes until it forms a soft dough. Set aside to cool.
    2. Make the Filling:
      • In another pan, heat coconut milk and jaggery (or coconut sugar) until the jaggery melts and combines with the coconut milk.
      • Add cocoa powder, desiccated coconut, and cardamom powder. Mix well and cook until the mixture thickens slightly. Remove from heat and let it cool.
    3. Shape the Modaks:
      • Take a small portion of the rice flour dough and flatten it using your palms.
      • Place a spoonful of the chocolate-coconut filling in the center.
      • Bring the edges together to form a peak at the top, resembling a modak shape. Repeat for all the dough and filling.
    4. Steam the Modaks:
      • Place the modaks in a steamer lined with parchment paper or a lightly greased plate.
      • Steam for about 10-12 minutes until the modaks are cooked through. They should be firm and slightly translucent.
    5. Serve:
      • Let the modaks cool slightly before removing them from the steamer.
      • Optionally, melt some vegan chocolate chips or dark chocolate and drizzle over the modaks for a decorative touch.
    6. Enjoy:
      • Serve these vegan chocolate modaks as a sweet treat during your Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations!
