Prep time


Cooking time




  • 1 cup whole wheat flour,

  • 1/2 cup ghee,

  • 3/4 cup grated jaggery,

  • 1 tbsp pistachios, chopped,

  • 1 tbsp almonds, chopped,

  • Few strands of saffron,


  • Melt the ghee in a heavy bottom pan.
  • Add the whole wheat flour and mix well. Continue sauteing on very low flame.
  • Add in the chopped nuts and continue sauteing until you get a nice roasted aroma and the color changes to golden brown. This might take about 15-20 mins.
  • Remove from the heat and remove in a big plate. Allow it to cool until you are able to comfortably touch it but is still warm.
  • At this point add the jaggery and safforn strands and mix well with your hands ensuring there are no lumps in the mixture.
  • Now while still warm, start making the modaks by pressing the mixture into the mold.
  • Remove and serve.


  • Instead of making them as modaks, you can make them as laddoos for any occasion. 
  • The jaggery can be replaced with powdered brown sugar or just regular powdered sugar.
  • Dry fruits add to the nuttiness of these modaks so don’t skip them.
  • Roast the whole wheat flour on very low flame. This might take time, but the result is fabulous. Increasing the flame will result in the burning of the flour.
  • There is no need to add any flavoring agents like cardamom powder in these modaks. The roasted fragrant nutty aroma of whole wheat flour is so good, you don’t need to add anything else.
  • If the mixture doesnt hold shape or has become cold, return to low flame for 1-2 mins and then start making the modaks again.
