  9. Stuff the mawa mixture into the mould. Also, place 1 tsp of dry fruit mixture in the centre.
  10. Close tightly and scrape off excess mixture.
  11. Unmould the modak gently without breaking finally, Modak is ready to be served.



  • Firstly, in place of instant mawa you can also use store brought mawa.
  • Additionally, stuffing dry fruits in between gives a crunchy bite to modak.
  • Also, cook on low flame to prevent from burning.
