Ukadiche Modak:

Ukadiche Modak means Steamed Sweet Dumplings and those are prepared with rice flour and stuffed with coconut-jaggery stuffing. There are several varieties of this delicacy made from milk, fruit or dry nuts flavors to chocolate flavors. During Ganesh Chaturthi, the puja usually concludes with an offering of 21 modaks to Ganesha as prasadam. 

Khajur Modak | Sugar-Free Modak:

These small, energy-boosting Modaks are a good source of vitamins and minerals. Dates are a healthy substitute for white sugar in recipes due to their sweet taste, nutrients, fiber, and antioxidants. These chewy Modaks allow the sweetness of the dates to shine with very little extra sugar. But no worries, the flavor is still on point. If you are going for a walk or to the gym, you can pop this modak in your mouth for the instant boost of energy.

Rava Mawa Modak:

This Rava Mawa Modak is one of those simple, but very satisfying desserts. Also, it's Lord Ganesha's favorite sweet that hits the sweet spot every time during this festive season (Ganpati festival). If you have tried my Instant Pot Semolina Ladoo recipe, then you will find this Modaks recipe is as easy as ladoos. You need a few ingredients, half an hour of your time, and modak mold.

Malai Modak:

These are made from,  homemade khoya, paneer, and condensed milk and which are then flavored with cardamom and saffron. Malai Modak has an intense flavor and an amazing texture that makes it a popular dessert. If you are planning to cook a feast for Lord Ganesha, then go for these easy to make and Lord Ganesha's favorite Modaks. They will be ready in 20 minutes.

Mango Ukadiche Modak(Steamed Rice and Mango Dumplings):

It is made from steamed rice flour and mango puree and stuffed with a sweet, juicy mixture of jaggery and grated coconut.

Khoya or Mawa Modak is a mouth-melting, and Shahi treats to our taste buds. It has its unique taste and texture. The best thing is that it is much easier to make than the traditional modak.

Puranache Modak:

When the filling consists of chana dal and jaggery, it is known as Puran. Puran stuffed modaks are known as Purnache Modak. The dumpling can be fried or steamed.

Policha / Chapaticha Modak:

These healthy desserts/snacks made with whole wheat flatbread, jaggery(gul), ghee (clarified butter), and delicious Tutti-Frutti. When I was a kid, my mom used to pack these goodies into my snack box. It is very easy to make and has only 4 ingredients in its making. I learned this recipe from my Aai(Mother). 

Besan Modaks without Sugar:

There is something about the aroma of freshly roasted besan in ghee mixed with jaggery that brings water to our mouth! Besan modak is one such type of modak that has caught our fancy, and we were surprised to know how easy it is to put together. All you need are a handful of basic ingredients like ghee, besan, and jaggery powder.
