Ganapathi Bappa Morya! Ganesh Chaturthi is on Friday, the 25th of August 2017 and how can we not make Modaks for our lovely Lord Ganesha. Today, I'm going to make Fried Modaks, or Talniche Modak which is made with a filling coconuts, mawa, sugar and nuts. The recipe is pretty easy and we're going to shape them with hands and not using any type of modak mold / mould.

Ghee 4 Tablespoon
