How To make Sugar Free Modak? | Instant Sugar Free Modak Recipe

Modak is a popular sweet that is traditionally prepared during the Indian festival of Ganesh Chaturthi. It is a sweet dumpling filled with coconut and jaggery or sugar. However, for those who are looking for a healthier option, sugar-free modak is a great choice. Here’s a recipe for sugar-free modak that you can try at home.

Here is a breakfast recipe that is easy to prepare and delicious to eat.


  • 1 cup of rice flour
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 tablespoon of ghee
  •  1 cup of grated coconut
  • 1 cup of milk powder
  • 1/2 cup of chopped nuts (almonds, cashews, pistachios)
  • 1/2 cup of raisins
  • 1/2 cup of sugar-free sweetener (stevia or erythritol)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cardamom powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg powder
  • A pinch of salt


  • In a large mixing bowl, add the rice flour, ghee, and salt. Mix it well with your hands until it resembles bread crumbs.
  • Boil the water in a saucepan and add it to the rice flour mixture slowly, while stirring continuously. Mix it well to form a smooth dough.
  • Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for 10-15 minutes.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, add the grated coconut, milk powder, chopped nuts, raisins, sugar-free sweetener, cardamom powder, and nutmeg powder. Mix it well.
  • Take a small portion of the dough and roll it into a ball. Flatten it with your fingers to form a small disc.
  • Take a spoonful of the coconut mixture and place it in the center of the disc.
  • Fold the edges of the disc towards the center, covering the coconut mixture, and pinch the top to form a pointy tip.
  • Repeat the same process for the rest of the dough and the coconut mixture.
  • Heat water in a steamer and place the modaks in the steamer basket. Cover the steamer with a lid and let it steam for 10-12 minutes.
  • Once the modaks are cooked, take them out of the steamer and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.
  • Your sugar-free modaks are ready to serve. Enjoy them with your family and friends during the festival season.


  • You can use any sugar-free sweetener of your choice, but make sure to adjust the quantity according to your taste.
  • You can also add some roasted sesame seeds or poppy seeds to the coconut mixture for added flavor.
  • If you don’t have a steamer, you can also bake the modaks in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes. Just make sure to brush them with a little ghee before baking.

In conclusion, this sugar-free modak recipe is a healthier alternative to traditional modak. It is a great way to indulge in the festive spirit without compromising on your health. So go ahead and try this recipe at home and impress your loved ones with your culinary skills. Happy cooking!
