chocolate modak recipe with step by step photos. these chocolate modaks are prepared mainly from three ingredients chocolate, mawa/khoya (evaporated milk solids) and sugar. this modak recipe takes less than 30 mins to make and is simple to make during festive seasons. it is similar to the recipe of mawa modak.

chocolate modak recipe

i had mawa and chocolate both, so thought of making chocolate modaks. everyone is fond of chocolates and to include chocolate in modaks would be favorite of many people. you could make this as offering for lord ganesha or serve as a sweet dessert to family. kids would surely love these modaks.

i have used chocolate chips but you could use grated chocolate of any good brand. mawa used for this recipe is unsweetened mawa. further to give more flavor and aroma, i have sprinkled freshly ground cardamom powder. for variation you could use vanilla extract or cinnamon powder instead of cardamom powder. mawa or khoya can be easily made at home. you can check this recipe on how to make khoya at home.

the best part of these chocolate modaks are that you could refrigerate them for 5 to 6 days. these modaks taste best when they are served chilled. modaks are loved by our folks be it ukadiche modak, fried modak, dry fruits modak, rava modak or sweet kozhukattai.

i have garnished them with finely chopped pistachios and rose petals but it’s optional. i have used modak moulds for chocolate modak but you could also use chocolate moulds. if you don’t have moulds then just shape them into modak or make small balls like pedas and serve.

  1. HI…
    Thanks for the recipe.
    I made chocolate modak recipe.
    yummy taste and awesome texture and liked by my in laws and my friend and close ones.

    • Welcome Meeta. Glad to know that you liked chocolate modak.

  2. Hi..i tripled the recipe..the taste was really good..but i did not get the firmness to shape them well..what could be the reason?

    • could be that the modak mixture needed to cook for some more minutes. if the mixture is not cooked properly, the shape also won’t come well.

  3. Mam your recipe was damn fabulous n the measurements were so precise for 21 modaks.. I made the modaks N offered to god, my neighbours n my friends.. They were just awestruck with my cooking skills but the real hand was yours in the modak making process… N all r asking for the recipes..so happy.

    • Thanks Chandrika for this awesome feedback. Glad to know that I was somewhere involved in background while offering modak to Lord Ganesha.
