Ingredients to make Dry Fruit Modak

  • 1/4 cup each of almonds, cashews and raisins
  • 1/2 bowl grated dry coconut or Take a dry coconut and cut it into pieces

How to make Dry Fruit Modak

  1. Dry roast the almonds and cashews. Keep them aside, then dry roast the coconut powder until it changes color.
  2. Now heat 1 tsp of ghee add the chopped khajoor, stir it continuously to avoid burning. Once it becomes soft, add the raisins and stir for 2-3 mins. Then turn off the gas and let it cool down.
  3. Take a chopper, add in the almonds and cashews, chop them coarsely. If you are using coconut pieces, then add them too while chopping.
  4. Now add all the ingredients into the khajoor and mix it well. Heat it on the flame again for 1 minute. (Let it cool down enough to handle with bare hands.)
  5. When easy to handle, grease the modak mould. Add in the remaining ghee to the dough.
  6. Make the modak using the moulds and it's ready for bhog.

My Tip:

Dry roast the dry fruits in a non-stick pan to avoid the burning smell.
