Today on the auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi, I’m bringing to you a very unique Modak recipe. My recipe today is an Almond and Matcha Modak (Matcha and Almond Katli Modak) which is Vegan and Glutenfree. These fudgy Modak are slightly unconventional however addictively delicious and extremely simple to make. 

Wishing you all happy festivities. Have the most wonderful celebration with your families and friends.
