Fried Modak is a deep fried version of the otherwise steamed modak which tastes

equally good. The Modak has a crispy and crunchy covering whereas the inner stuffing

is soft and moist. The heavenly mixture of coconut and jaggery melts in your mouth

after each bite of this crunchy Modak. Unlike the traditional steamed modak, this fried

modak is made of maida. Though the classic stuffing is delicious, you can also add

dates or dry fruits of your choice to the stuffing. For other varieties of Modak, you can

Modak, Almond Modak, Strawberry Ukadiche Modak.
