8 Places Delivering Artisanal And Gourmet Modaks To Your Doorsteps This Ganesh Chaturthi

We're ready to binge on our favourite festive sweet!

By Isha Mayer  September 9th, 2021

We’re going to admit it. One of the reasons we look forward to Ganesh Chaturthi is to binge on modaks! Filled with nostalgia, the delicious sweet takes us back to childhood days where we’d gorge on them without keeping a track of how many we consume. NGL, we still do this; can you relate?

Growing up, we’ve had our fair share of traditional Ukadiche Modaks (steamed rice dumplings filled with jaggery and coconut shavings) and classic pedas. Today though, patisseries and sweet shops have us spoilt for choice with modern versions that are equally delicious, keeping the festive spirit alive. Think bonbons, cheesecakes and gluten-free options, but in modaks! Whether you want to pop a few of these yourself or gift them to your loved ones, here’s where to order artisanal and gourmet modaks to your doorstep.

1. Sassy Teaspoon, Mumbai And Pune

With three enticing flavours, this dessert shop gives a sassy spin to its modaks in the form of Kesar Peda Cheesecake, Chocolate Barfi, and Kopra Pak & Ruby Chocolate. Talk about giving Indian flavours a contemporary twist!

Price: ₹445 ++ (Box of 6), ₹795 ++ (Box of 12)

2. Le Pure Chocolatier, pan-India

Give your classic pedas a rest and indulge in chocolate modaks this year. Le Pure Chocolatier offers artisanal modak bon-bons in innovative flavour combinations such as the India-inspired Rose and Pistachio Praline, Saffron Ganache, Salted Caramel, Espresso, Coconut & Almond Praline, and Nostimo Hazelnut.

Price: ₹450 (Box of 6), ₹900 (Box of 12)

Deliveries are available in Maharashtra, Delhi, Kolkata, Bangalore, Chennai, Gujarat and Indore.
