Dalia Modak with Caramelised Fruits | Broken wheat dumplings with caramelised fruits | How to make Modak with Dalia

Dalia Modak with Caramelised Fruits is unique, simple version of traditional Ukdiche Modak recipe. Traditionally Ukdiche modaks are prepared using rice flour, coconut and jaggery as main ingredients.

As usual with my twist, I made it with broken wheat/dalia and multi flours instead of using only rice flour.

This Ganesh chaturthi, to offer something unique to Deity, I have come up with my version of Modak, which is prepared using multi grain flours and served  with caramelised fruits.

Ganesh chaturthi festival and Modak connection

A very happy Ganesha Chaturthi to all the viewers and readers of my blog. I pray that may Lord Ganesha shower his blessings to everyone.

This 10 day long festival is celebrated by welcoming Lord Ganesha and the atmosphere is electric with fasting and feasting. Everyday the offering/Prasad of Modak is must to complete the Pooja.

  2. Ritu Tangri

    Modak with all these flours and dalia as the outer layer must have tasted wonderful. I haven’t made modak so far. God know what, but something holds me back

    1. Lata Lala

      Absolutely true Ritu. I made fried modaks for the first time otherwise traditional ukdiche modaks are all time favorite with us.
      Go for it they are quite easy to make.
      Thank you dear for stopping by my blog

  3. Avin

    Adding daliya instead of rice flour makes this sweet even more healthier. Definitely a unique twist

    1. Lata Lala

      Thank you Avin for writing in. True daliya and other flours gives it a unique taste.

  4. Ashima

    They look delicious and divine.I made my first ever Udakiche modals this Ganesh Chaturthi… Caramelised fruits sound like a great idea to pair the modals with!

    Thanks for sharing.

  5. Sujata Roy

    So innovative. Never tried modak with Dalia. Looks so perfect and delish. Definitely dalia makes it healthy. Awesome share.

  6. Anshu

    What healthy modaks. Loved the idea of adding Cooked Dalia…and I am sure with caramelised fruits they must have tasted heavenly….

    1. Lata Lala

      Thank you Anshu
      Yes caramelized fruits tasted very well with modaks.

  7. I never thought of making dalia modaks.. your are so creative… I admire you 🙂

  8. Lathiya

    The dalia modak itself sounds yummy…the outer covering is truly different from the normal modak and the caramelised fruits enhance the flavor

  9. Delicious modak. Must thank you for the detailed instruction on using the mould. I have the same one but did not use it as everything was stuck and I had a mess. I preferred the traditional method 😀 uneven but good.

  10. Priya Suresh

    Wow, thats a lovely twist to our usual modak, especially dalia in modak is completely very unique. Well done and very creative.

    1. Lata Lala

      Thanks Priya. A welcome change for Bappa too

  11. code2cook

    what an innovation, to use broken wheat in making modaks. Must say Lata it is brilliant idea. Modak has come out beautiful. Afterall Ganpati Bappa also should feast healthy.

  12. Maria

    These dumplings are quite a work of art and so festive looking too. So many layers of flavours and textures must make them a scrumptious treat.

  16. Vanitha Bhat

    Very nice idea to stuff the coconut filling in a dalia covering! Looks so delicious and tempting! Need to get those molds to make for next year!

  17. Addition of daliya here is making the dish even more healthier. Lovely twist to our modak 🙂
