It's the time of the year when we welcome Bappa to our homes! We look forward to this time not only for the good vibes and people coming together but also for the star attraction - Modak!
We scouted around the city to know which are the most unconventional ones in town and here's what we found:
Ukdiche Modak @ Arth, Khar
Ukdiche Modak at Arth
What's better than a traditional steamed Modak filled with the classic coconut jaggery filling? We've all heard about Arth - chic decor, beautiful chandeliers, delightful food but this Ganesh Chaturthi, Chef Amninder Sandhu brings these beauties to Arth, Khar.
Tofu Modak @ Dishkyaoon, BKC

If you're tired of the usual modaks or if you're sensitive to gluten, these gluten free lovelies are for you. They're healthier too!
D:OH! DAK @ D:OH! Cafe, Lower Parel
D:OH! DAK at D:OH!
Indulge in this ginormous special chocolate modak
filled with the ice cream, brownie, and chocolate sauce served with a side of hand churned modak
ice cream made with jaggery, coconut, and dry fruits. galore Doesn't it look tempting already?
Modak @ Aaswad, Dadar
If you're wondering what a quintessentially traditional modak is like, Aaswad is where you'll find your answer. This quaint little outlet draws crowds from far away for their delicious Maharashtrian fare and desserts!
Marzipan @ Nordic Kandie, Peddar Road
Marzipan Modaks by Nordic Kandie
We've all had mawa, chocolate and other flavours of modaks; take it up a notch this Ganesh Chaturthi and indulge in real edible Gold and Silver Marzipan Modaks.
