Khajur Modak or Dates Modak is an easy recipe. We can make it 20 to 30 minutes. It is healthy. I saw this recipe in Rak’s kitchen. So I decided to make it this year. The taste was awesome. You can grind nuts coarsely. Mine became a bit powderly. Children will love it because of the shape.
Let us see the recipe
- Dates – 25
- Almond – 30
- Cashew – 30
- Pistachio – 30
- Ghee – 2 tsp (for greasing and frying)
Heat little ghee in a pan and fry almond, cashew and pistachio in a low flame for just few seconds. Keep aside to cool. Grind coarsely in a mixer. Discard the seeds of dates and grind in a mixer to a smooth paste. Add nut powder and dates paste in a bowl and mix it well. Grease modak mould and palm with ghee. Insert little of this mixture inside the mould and press tightly. Open the mould and take the modak out.
You can add any nuts of your choice.
It is little bit sticky so every time grease the mould with ghee.
