Ukadiche Modak

This is the favourite prasad of lord Ganesha, So I am starting my blog with a prasad to my 'Ganapati bappa'

For cover
Rice powder- 1cup
Water- 1cup
Oil- 1 Table spoon
Salt- 1 pinch
Sugar- 1 Tea spoon

For stuffing
Grated coconut – 1cup
Jaggery – half cup
Rosted Khaskhas (poppy seeds) – 1Tea spoon
Cardamom powder – ¼ Tea spoon


For stuffing-
On a slow flame add grated coconut and jaggery in kadai and cook it till the mixture becomes dry (stir in between). Then add khaskhas (poppy seeds), Cardamom powder , mix it and remove it from flame. Allow it cool for some time.

For cover-
Heat the water, when it started boiling put oil,salt & sugar into it. When sugar gets dissolved, Add the rice flour immediately with one hand and stirring the mixture continuously with the other.Take care that no lumps are formed in the mixture. Put some cover on it and keep aside for 10 minutes. Then take 1 cup water with 1 tablespoonoil. Now take the dough on flat surface and knead it well with hands with little bit of oil and water mixture(to avoid the cover from cracks). Dough should not stick on the surface.

While making modak, grease your hands with oil and water mixture. Make a lemon sized ball of the dough. Keeping the base thick give the shape of a katori and fill it with stuffing. Now pinch the edges and then close it in the shape of modaks. Make all the modaks. Now for steaming, you can use a steamer or take ¼ water in big vessel, heat it. Arrange all modaks on sieve and keep it on the vessel. Cover it and steam it for 10 min. you can sprinkle little bit saffron on modaks while steaming.

Now Modaks for our beloved Ganapati bappa is ready.
