How to make fried Modak with dessicated coconut – Ganesh chaturthi recipes

    I had posted the authentic fried poornam modaks a couple of years ago. But in case you are short of time,yet you don’t want to skip making the prasadam for the Ganesh chaturthi to please your favourite lord and of course your dear family, then go ahead making this one.This recipe will hardly take 30 minutes of your time.It tastes great too!! I have had a lot of this when I lived in Maharashtra and absolutely loved it.My mom used to make this  for Sankashta chaturthi also and also during one of the ten days during the Ganesh festival.
