Note: You will require a Modak mold for giving your Modak’s a perfect shape and texture. It is preferable to use the small-sized molds. If you do not have mold, then you can give them the shape of Ladoo. If you want the creamier texture, you can use the condensed milk as well. If it is not available, then you may substitute it with the Almond Milk. On the other hand, for the crispy texture, you can coat the Ladoo with the breadcrumbs. If you are using ghee, use patanjali cow ghee. If you are using oil, use saffola oil.
