While the above Nariyal Modak recipe suggests using condensed milk to sweeten your modak, you can use sugar as an alternative sweetener. Adjust the amounts of sugar and condensed milk to achieve the desired taste.
If your modak mixture is too dry, it may be due to overcooking the mixture or not using enough liquid. To fix this, gradually add a small amount of warm milk or ghee to the mixture until it reaches a pliable consistency.
Excess moisture in the coconut can make the mixture sticky. To fix this, add more coconut milk powder to absorb the moisture and achieve the right consistency. If it's still sticky, let it cool slightly before handling.
Modaks can crack if the mixture is too dry. Ensure the edges of the modak are sealed tightly and apply a little ghee on your hands while shaping to prevent cracks.
