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 flour, 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.

  6. Add desiccated coconut in a non-stick pan and dry roast for a few minutes without burning it.
  7. Add caramel and combine everything.
  8. Turn off the heat and let the mixture cool for a while.
  9. Apply little ghee on your palm and knead the coconut mixture to make a smooth dough and divide the dough into equal portions and make a ball.
  10. I have used modak mould to prepare modak.
  11. Grease the inside of the mould with little ghee.
  12. Put one ball into the mould, and press the mould tightly.
  13. Then make a hole by pressing with your fingers.
  14. Add coconut mixture and slightly press everything.
  15. Pinch a little cashew dough from the remaining balls and seal the open part of the modak.
  16. Remove it from the mould and repeat the procedure with the remaining dough and mixture.
  17. Let it stand for a couple of hours. Enjoy!

NOTES:

Instead of caramel, dulce de leche can be used for this recipe.

Don’t have modak mould? make round balls instead and stuff it with caramel mixture.

Can I use skimmed milk powder instead? Will there be any difference?

You can use but modak won't be rich and creamy.

These look absolutely fantastic. I would love to try them - I saw them on your Insta feed first, and I know you said they're simple to make, but I still don't think I could pull them off :))))
