Traditionally, twenty-one modaks are offered to Lord Ganesha after prayers and they are then distributed among family members as ‘prasad’. Ghee or clarified butter pairs well with warm modak. An old tale mentions that Lord Ganesha was offered a variety of foods by Anusuya. But he felt full only after he ate an ‘ukadiche modak’. We all probably feel the same way. Although today many varieties of modak such as fried modak, chocolate modak are available, most of us still long for ‘ukadiche modak’. Ukadiche modak is well suited for a vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free diet.
But today making modak seems like a daunting task. We end up debating with ourselves - Are we not going to familiarize next generations with our culinary traditions? Will modak remain a fond memory or will it be THE delicacy that we will share with our loved ones? Making modak does require pantry planning, culinary skills, and most importantly time management. It could take half a day to prepare ‘ukadiche modak’. As a busy professional or homemaker, it is difficult to find so many hours for making modak. And yet you wish to make twenty-one modak offering to Lord Ganesha.
