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.
