Chocolate Modak Recipe is delicious and festive twist to this Ganesh Chaturthi favourite. Also called kozhukattai, modals are a staple for this festival, along with Sundal, served as the favourites of Lord Ganesh. Chocolate Modaks are a great option for those looking to make an assortment of homemade sweets either to present for the pooja at home, to distribute to family and friends or even to serve at your festival feast. This recipe comes in handy, using the same basic modak recipe, using homemade chenna, but adds a slight variation in the form of the welcome addition of chocolate.
