  • Grind the unibic choco chip cookies into a fine powder.
  • For the filling mix all the ingredients listed in a mixing bowl and keep aside.
  • Mash the paneer/cottage cheese very nicely, If the paneer is very grainy you can pulse it in mixie for a couple of seconds.
  • Now in a mixing bowl add crumbled paneer, milk powder, powdered /cookies, coffee, cocoa powder, cinnamon powder, sugar, ghee and mix thoroughly.
  • Now add milk very little at a time and keep mixing until it forms a thick mixture like a chapati dough.
  • Take a big walnut sized ball from the dough and flatten it.
  • Make a cavity in the centre and fill 1/4th teaspoon of the nutty mixture.
  • Now gather the dough and seal from all sides very smoothly giving the shape of a modak.
  • Make all modaks in the same way.
  • Keep them in refrigerator for about an hour and they are ready to serve.
  • Garnish with sprinklers and chocolate syrup if you like and serve with love.
  • My tip These modaks stay good for a week when refrigerated
