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.

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 or bought from outside.

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 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.
