About Chhena Modak Recipe
Modak are small dumplings which are usually stuffed with sweet coconut and dry fruit fillings. Modak can be made in many ways. Traditionally we Maharashtrian make Ukadiche Modak ( Basically steamed rice flour dumplings stuffed with fresh scrapped Coconut , Jaggery and Nuts) and Talaniche Modak ( deep fried , crispy sweet preparation ) . Apart from these traditional Modaks, this year i have made Modak using Chhena ( Crumbled Paneer) for Naivedhyam to Lord Ganesha. Chhena Modak are milk based sweet delicacies made from Chena ( Cottage Cheese / Paneer). Paneer gives nice creamy and grainy texture to the modak. I have used home made fresh chhena for the recipe. But you may use the store bought Paneer and crumble it for the recipe. This will surely save the time and efforts.
