  3. Add the butter milk, stir with the spatula ones and beat it again.
  4. Transfer the batter in the greased baking tin. Bake it at 180° for 30 min. After checking if it's done, with tooth pick . Cut the cake in to pieces and grind it to make crumbs.
  5. Add a little butter, Coco powder, milk and little sugar to bind the cake crumbs with your hands.
  6. Lastly grease the modak mould with little flour and then put the cake in to the modak mould taking off the excess to give it an exact shape. Press on all sides of the mould and take it out slowly.

My Tip:

Use little butter with cocoa powder, milk and sugar. Don't use excess butter to bind the cake crumbs. Be careful of this so that you don't get a buttery taste while eating.
