Both had common stuffing made with scraped coconut and jaggery. I still remember my first ganpati post marriage…and remember how grand it was !!

They were made from dried coconut , dryfruits and sugar ,alongwith some other simple ingredients!! And they were called Khirapat che Modak! Khirapat is nothing but a mix of grated roasted dry coconut and castor sugar. Its also made as a prashad during evening aartis during the ganpati festival!

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
