Be it the traditional steamed modaks or the different flavoured modaks – this is one sweet which is prepared extensively during Ganesh Chaturthi as modaks and laddoos are known to be Lord Ganesha’s favourite sweets. Instead of having the same type of modak on all days to offer as prasad, it is good to experiment and make different modaks. Chocolate and coconut make for a great pair and making a modak with these flavours is surely going to be a crowd pleaser.
