Ukdiche modak are loved by all and really don't need any introduction as such. Till day I have rarely come across a person whose face hasn't lit up at the idea of eating hot ukdiche modak with pure ghee dripping over it. Its a heavenly feeling ..........personally to be experienced.............


The method of doing the modaks is same as Ambyache Ukdiche modak given here
