Khoya modak recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Sweet
Prep Time10 mins    |  Cook time: 7 mins     Makes: 3


Khoya – 1 cup

Powdered sugar – 1/4 cup

Cardamom powder – 1/4 tsp

Saffron – A pinch

Milk – 2 tsp

Ghee – to grease


  1. I used frozen khoya. I brought it to room temperature and measured 1 cup in powdered form. Heat it in a non stick pan over medium flame for 5 minutes or until it oozes out fat.
  2. 1-heat
  3. Take care not to change its colour much.
  4. 2-bowl
  5. Cool down until warm and add powdered sugar. Add cardamom, saffron soaked in warm milk and make a dough.
  6. 3-mix
  7. Grease a modak mould with ghee and fill it with this khoya mixture. Level the bottom.
  8. 4-shape
  9. Unmould carefully and arrange in a plate. Make sure to grease the mould every time to make the modak.
  10. 5-level


    • The khoya was 1/2 cup after cooking, so I took 1/4 cup sugar. Keep this as guidance.
    • Do not add more milk or else it will become too sticky.
    • In case it becomes sticky, add some milk powder.
    • If its sticky, you can keep in fridge for better handling.

Keep refrigerated and consume within a day or two. Rich and flavorful khoya modak for Ganesh chaturthi!

  7. Hi, is there an alternative name for khoya? Eg, ulunthu is referred to as dhal.
    Where in Singapore could I buy this?

  8. You can find this in frozen section of mustafa just opposite to the paneer. It will be written as Khoya only. Let me know if you still could not find it in mustafa. You can ask the sales guys working there for help to spot it.
