Kesar Mawa Modak (Indian Saffron Milk Fudge )

To make kesar mawa modak I used home made mawa, posting this recipe on the occasion of first sankasht chaturthi of 2018. And what could be the more precious occasion than this to most my first recipe of 2018.
Mawa is made with four simple ingredients and the modaks are made using this mawa . So lets begin.

Ingredients For Mawa:-

1)Full milk powder 250 grams
2)Unsalted Butter 1 table spoon
3)Condensed Milk 2 and 1/2 table spoons
4)Almond milk 1/2 cup


1) In a nonstick pan melt butter, add in milk powder
2) Dry roast the milk powder on low to medium flame for 4 to 5 minutes or until the milk powder colour turns into a very light  yellowish colour , stirring continuously with a wooden spoon .
(Note: Do not leave the milk powder unattended other wise it will burn)
3) After 4 to 5  minutes add in the condensed milk , mix well, add in the almond milk the mixture becomes wet at this stage( Refer the pictures in the video bellow)
4) Stir continuously until all the moisture goes away and the wet mixture turns into a mawa like consistency (Refer the photos in the video to get an idea)
5) It will take around 10 to 15 minutes to get the mawa consistency, when it becomes hard to mix with the spoon use the smasher to well combine the mawa and get the nice crumbly mawa texture
 ( refer the photos in the video) once you get the desired texture remove the mawa in a plate and allow it to cool down. 
6) The crumbly soft mawa is ready, you can use it for making any sweet or burfi i have used to make the Modak the recipe is shown bellow.
(Note: It is very important to keep the flame between low to medium and continuous stirring to avoid the burning )

1) Mawa 1 and half cups
2) Powdered sugar 1/2 cup
3) Cardamom Powder 1/2 tea spoon
4) Kesar strands dissolved in warm milk few strands or 1/4 tea spoon


1) Gently mix together all the ingredients until well combined to form a soft crumbly dough
2) Apply some butter or ghee to your hands divide the dough into a 21 to 23 equal portions
3) If you have modak mould, fill the modak mould with the mixture and press it firm, nice Modak will be ready
