Kesar Mawa Modak

Kesar Mawa Modak is an absolutely delicious and divine Indian sweet that is prepared during the Ganesh festival.  This Saffron milk fudge recipe is an Indian sweet referred to as “Modak” that is made during Ganesh Chaturthi to lure our Elephant god aka Ganpati Bappa.

Mainly, Kesar Mawa Modak is loaded with sweetness and richness of Saffron also known as Kesar. This modak is offered to our Ganpati Bappa as he is extremely fond of it.

Moreover, It is believed that our Indian festivals are incomplete without any sweets preparations. Ladoos, Modaks, Kheer, Barfis, and milk-based puddings are few of the Indian sweets or Mithais that are usually prepared.

However, our Ganpati Bappa is very fond of sweets, and Indian Sweets like Lauki Halwa, Kesar BasundiMango PhirniSitaphal rabriMango Kalakand,  modak, and ladoos are usually made in our “indian homes. today being the  first day of Ganesh Chaturthi there is going to be raining ladoos at my place. I am going to try a few Modaks, Ladoos and Burfis to offer as prasadam to Ganpati Bappa.
