Atul Kulkarni shared that he prefers to eat sweet dishes before starting his lunch or dinner. It is because he has been told that you should always start your meal with a sweet dish. While enjoying the thali at Sujata Upahar Gruha, he quickly shifted to Ukadiche Modak. He took the time to show us how to eat it properly. He started by cracking open one from the middle and poured a spoonful of ghee into the filling. 

The ghee slowly seeped into the coconut filling and then he took a bite. You could clearly see the satisfaction on his face as the filling burst with ghee inside his mouth. This prompted Arohi to try the same. We urge you to do the same because it’s delish!
