Since I came to know what traditional modak looks like and how to make them, I had making them on my bucket list. One day I'll go about it! While I was watching a video on youtube how to make traditional modak, a thought came to my mind to make Cashew Caramel Modak.

For the outer layer ( exterior) instead of rice I thought of using cashews and for the filling, I picked caramel instead of jaggery. And guess what? They were a huge hit, I made about 15 modak and they were gone within a couple of hours, I saw hands hovering over the plate as soon as I finished clicking the photos. All I saw were arms reaching out from all directions, snagging modak after modak. Needless to say, we didn't waste any time. I suppose we were hungry for these Cashew Caramel Modak.
