Chocolate Modak is a tasty Prasad which everybody love to have in Lord Ganesha’s Chaturti Festival. This Prasad is healthy as well as nutritious if made in a right way. Chocolate Modak which You get in market is made from Khoya ( khawa/ mawa) with lot of sugar . This Modak is very high in calorie. But when we make  Chocolate Modak at home we can make it  healthy as well as nutritious. I make Chocolate Modak in two ways

Chocolate Modak made from chena can be made from whole milk , tonned milk or even with skimmed milk .You can cut calories from this Modak by using low fat milk . This Modak are very simple and You can easily make it at home. you just need a Modak Mold (Modak sancha) to give it a nice shape of modak.
