Ingredients

4 cups grated fresh coconut
1 & 1/2 cup chopped jaggery
1/2 tsp. cardamom & nutmeg powder
1 mixing bowl rice flour Salt to taste
2-3 tsp. oil
2 tsp. almonds flakes

Method

-For the filling, mix grated fresh coconut and chopped jaggery in a round bottom pan and let it rest for 15 mins.
– Cook this mixture well for 10 mins on a low flame.
– Make sure that the jaggery doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
– As the mixture turns golden in color, turn off the flame and add poppy seeds, cardamom powder & nutmeg powder. Mix well. Keep it aside and let it cool down completely.
– In the meantime, boil water in a round bottom pan. As it warms, add very little salt and 2-3 tsp. oil.
– Once the water boils, add rice flour slowly on a low flame. Make sure you stir the water with the other hand while adding the flour otherwise it will stick to the bottom of the pan.
– Mix well and cover it for 3-4 mins.
– Remove the mixture into a flat bottom pan and knead the dough well. – Add water as required while kneading the dough. – Take out lemon sized balls of the dough and shape it into a small roti with your fingers. Apply oil to your palms so that the mixture doesn’t stick to your hands.
– Fill the small roti with the coconut filling leaving some space for folding it.
– Pinch the outer covering with your fingers into small pleats and then fold them up. Join them and cover the filling completely. This is how it looks.
– Make all the modaks like so and keep them aside.
– For cooking, fill 1/4th of the pressure cooker or steamer with water. Keep a strainer on it and cover it with the lid. If you are using a pressure cooker, don’t put the vent valve.
– Let the modaks steam for 10-15 mins and they are ready. You can also serve them with ghee or clarified butter. They taste really good.
