Ingredients
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup almond flour , blanched
  • 2/3 cup condensed milk , more if needed for sweetness
  • 2 tbsp milk , if needed
  • 1 1/2 tbsp ghee
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder
  • 7-8 strands saffron , soaked in 1 tsp milk
  • 2 tbsp pistachio , crushed
  • 1 drop green food color
  • 1 1/2 tbsp rose petal preserve (gulkand)
Garnish:
  • pistachio , crushed
  • gold foil
  • dried rose petals
  • sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Roast almond flour and desiccated coconut in a heavy-bottomed saucepan on low-medium heat for just 5 minutes. Add in the condensed milk, ghee, and cardamom powder, mixing until combined. Switch off the gas within 2 minutes as it comes together into a soft dough. Don't over cook otherwise the mixture will become dry. Add 2 tbsp milk if needed to adjust the consistency.

  2. Divide the dough into 4 equal parts and flavor them. Leave the 1st part plain (cardamom flavor) and mix soaked saffron in the 2nd part, rose (gulkand) in the 3rd part, and crushed pistachios with green color in the 4th part. Your four different flavored doughs are ready.

  3. Grease your modak mold with ghee and gently press and shape your different flavored modaks. Garnish each with pistachios, gold foil, rose petals, and sprinkles. Enjoy!
