This is Steamed/ Ukade / Kudisida Modak.
- 1 Cup Wheat flour
- 1 Cup Coconut
- ½ Cup Jaggery
- 1 tsp Sesame seeds
- 1 tsp Poppy seeds (optional)
- ½ tsp Cardamom powder
In a bowl add wheat flour, salt and make a dough. (almost like chapti dough)
Keep aside the dough at least for 1 hr.
On a low heat roast the coconut, sesame seeds, poppy seeds and jaggery. Now the jaggery melts and from a nice mixute with all ingredients. Turn off the heat, add cardamom powder and mix it well.
Now make a small balls oof dough, roall into small puris(or desired size). Let is shape in circle, put a spoon full or more coconut stuffing and cover the dough to give modake shape.
In a pressure cooker or a steamer. I have used pressure cooker and Idli plates, grease the plates with ghee or oil, place the modaks on plate. Cook with modaks for 15-20 minutes without putting the whistle.
Serve modaks with Ghee. I did Nevadya With Rice, Kattin saar/Kaatachi Amti and Rice Sandagi
Modak are also done with deep frying. For that We have to use Miada/ All purospe flour and the dough should be bit stiff. With a same stuffing of coconut mixture and make the modaks. Deep fry in a oil instead of steaming.
Both style Modaks tastes good..:)
