Ingredients

1 cup rice flour

1 cup water

Pinch of salt

1 tbsp oil

 

Cookwares

kadai, Spoon

Step By Step Method

  • Bring the water to the boil and add the salt and oil. Remove from the heat and shoot in the flour, stirring briskly. When cool enough to handle, knead to a smooth dough. It should be neither too dry nor sticky. Cover with a damp cloth, set aside and proceed to make the filling.

    Ingredients for the filling

    2 cups freshly grated coconut

    1 cup jaggery, grated

    A pinch of cardamom powder

    Method

    Heat the jaggery over a low flame and add the coconut. Keep stirring till the mixture comes together. Add the cardamom powder.

    To make the modaks

    Take small balls of the dough and shape into thin discs, about 3 inches across. Place a teaspoon of filling inside and bring the edges together and pinch them together at the top. Make all the modaks this way. Place them on an oiled plate or banana leaf and steam for about 10 minutes.

    Note: You can also add chopped nuts or poppy seeds to the filling mixture, if you like.
