Here is Ganesh Chaturthi Special and Lord Ganesha Favorite Recipes method under above and All of a Happy Ganesh Chaturthi.

Chocolate modaks

1 cup rice flour
1 tsp oil
1/4th cup chocolate syrup
½ cup grated chocolate
3/4th cup desiccated coconut
A pinch of salt


Boil the water in a pan with salt and oil. Pour the rice flour in a steady stream, stirring continuously, to prevent lumps from forming. Seal the cooker with the lid and cook till steam begins to escape. Open the cooker and sprinkle water, seal the cooker with the lid and cook till steam begins to escape again. Mix well and remove the dough onto a plate.
Grease your palms with some oil and knead the dough till smooth. Divide the dough into eight equal portions.
For the stuffing, mix together the coconut, chocolate syrup and grated chocolate and divide into eight equal portions. Grease your palms again, and spread one portion of the dough into a round disc, thinning the edges with your finger tips.
Stuff one portion of the coconut mixture, gather the dough together in tiny pleats and press lightly to form a cone at the top. Place the modaks on a perforated plate and steam in a pressure cooker, with the lid on but without the weight, for ten to twelve minutes.
