Servings 9 modaks


  • 2 cups milk powder I have used
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp ghee or clarified butter
  • 3 tbsp strawberry syrup I have used
  • Additional ghee for greasing
  • Additional strawberry syrup for filling


  • In a bowl, add milk powder, milk and ghee. Combine with the help of a whisk.
  • Keep whisking until there are no lumps.
  • Heat a non-stick pan/skillet over low flame. Then pour the milk mixture into the pan.
  • Cook the mixture for a few minutes, while stirring continuously, until it thickens. Make sure there are no lumps.
  • Once the mixture is thick and leaves the sides of the pan. It may take approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Turn the flame off. Instant mawa/khoya is ready!
  • Pour strawberry syrup. I’ll suggest you add 1 tablespoon of syrup at a time and keep mixing it after each addition. You can stop when you’re happy with the colour and sweetness.
  • After the strawberry syrup is mixed well into the mawa/khoya mixture. Take it out in a bowl and allow it to cool down a little.
  • Don’t let it cool down completely. The mawa should remain warm (but it should not burn your fingers when you are handling it).
  • Take a modak mould. Grease it with ghee to prevent it from sticking. Close it.
  • Fill it with a little strawberry mawa mixture. Spread and press it evenly, all around the inside of the mould. Keep filling until just a little space is left in the middle (watch the video).
  • Pour ½ to 1 tsp strawberry syrup in it. Depending upon the size of the mould, adjust the quantity of the syrup. Here I have used ¾ tsp syrup for each modak.
  • Avoid overfilling, as it will become difficult to seal it later on and the modak might leak.
  • Then take a small amount of mawa mixture, flatten it a little, place it at the bottom of the mould and seal it well.
  • Carefully open the mould and take the modak out. Place it on a plate.
  • Make the other modaks in the same manner.
  • Instant Strawberry Mawa Modak is ready!
