Shahi Coconut modak, Easy Ganesh chaturthi recipes

Shahi coconut modak is an easy to make Prasadh for Ganesh chaturthi. Generally many people keep the Ganesha at home for a week after Ganesh chaturthi. They offer Prasadh for Ganpathi everyday. We used to celebrate this in one of our friend's house and we all will make prasadh everyday for Lord Ganesha. Even kids love to cut eggless cake for Ganesha too. This shahi coconut modak is a similar to the easy coconut ladoo recipe, shaped in modak shape. I have added some nuts to make it more rich. I used modak mould to shape this shahi coconut modak. Thanks to my friend Sonali for sharing the modak mould with me. Check out my Chocolate peda modak recipe too. Wish all my a very happy Ganesh Chaturthi. May Lord Ganesha shower his blessing on you always.

Notes:
  1. Adding nuts and saffron gives a nice taste and texture to the modak.
  2. If using fresh coconut dry roast it slightly and then proceed.
  3. Try to use only the white part of the fresh coconut to avoid more brown spots in the modak.
  4. You can stuff this inside the  rice flour outer cover and make it as a kozhakattai.
