Come Ganesh Chaturthi, and all one can think about is when to bring bappa home and what all bhogs to make for him.

However, it is often the sweets that take a back seat during all the festival frenzy.

Microwave Peda Modak

Take one can of condensed milk, and 4 tbsp of butter in a mixing bowl. Heat them in the microwave for a minute. Add 3 cups of milk powder, and 1 tsp of cardamom powder in the bowl and mix them. Heat the mixture again for a minute, remove, stir nicely and repeat the steps four times. Now, let the mixture cool down a bit for about 7 minutes. Make sure it stays a little warm, if not the mixture will thicken. Now, grease the silver modak mold with melted better and drop the aforementioned mixture with the help of a spoon in every mold. Close the mold properly and wait for some time. Open the mold carefully and your modaks are ready to serve.

Pour it in the modak mold and keep it in the refrigerator to cool down for half an hour. Your chocolate modaks are ready to serve.
