Paan Gulkand Modak

Paan Modak is a delightful and indulgent Indian sweet that combines the refreshing flavors of paan (betel leaf) with the rich and creamy texture of modak made with unsweetened Khoya . Modak, a popular sweet dumpling, that is traditionally prepared as an offering during festivals like Ganesh Chaturthi. Paan Modak takes this traditional dessert to a whole new level by infusing it with the unique flavors of paan, resulting in a mouthwatering and aromatic treat.

If you're a fan of both traditional Indian sweets and a little bit of adventure, then paan modak is about to become your new best friend. This delightful treat combines the refreshing flavors of paan (betel leaves) with the sweet and creamy goodness of modak, creating a unique fusion of taste that will leave your taste buds in awe.

The process of making this paan gulkand modak is quite simple. You just need few basic ingredients like paan or betel leaves, unsweetened Khoya or mawa and condensed milk for outer covering mixture and Gulkand (dried sweetened rose petals)and finely chopped dry fruits like Pista, badam, cashews for stuffing.Moreover some people add fennel seeds and supari for extra flavour but I have not added it. 

Apparently you can make this paan modak with dessicated coconut instead of khoya but the process is the same.This paan Gulkand Modak is super easy to make and can be done in a jiffy.

Paan Modak is best enjoyed fresh, as the flavors and textures are at their peak. However, if you have leftover modaks, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. It is important to note that the texture and taste may slightly change upon refrigeration.
