"Ganpati Bappa Moriya" Happy Ganesh Chaturti to all of you. Modak is very popular sweet in India, made especially during ganesh festival. There are various ways and methods to make Modak- like steamed rice modak, mava modak, khoya modak, modak stuffed with coconut, fried modak etc etc... Well I chose to make modak which is simple and gets ready in microwave in only 3 minutes.

1 cup milk powder
1 stick of unsalted butter
1/2 can of condensed milk
1 pinch of crushed cardamom/ Ilaychi

Take Butter in the microwave safe bowl (preferably glass) and melt it.
 Once butter is melted, add milk powder

Also mix in it condensed milk.
 Stir well and microwave for 3 minutes (keep stirring after every 1 minute)
 Stir after 1 minute

After stirring after 1 more minute.
