  • 3 cups - Rice flour
  • 6 cups - water
  • 6 tsp - oil
  • 4 cups - grated Coconut
  • 2 cups - Sugar or powdered Jaggery
  • a little Milk
  • How to Make Plain Modak:

    1. Bring the water to a boil and add oil into it for the outer covering.
    2. Take it off from the heat.
    3. Now add the rice flour, little by little to avoid lumps and cover the mixture and let it cool.
    4. When cool, knead it well into dough with a smooth finish in such a way that it should sparkle.
    5. Now take the coconut and jaggery/sugar in a heavy-bottom pan for the stuffing.
    6. Add milk.
    7. Keep on low flame with stirring.
    8. Stir and take off heat.
    9. The mixture should be fairly dry and turn a shade darker.
    10. Now make balls with the (covering) dough.
    11. Flatten them on the palm or on a surface into a circle.
    12. Place the stuffing in it and cover it completely with the dough.
    13. Steam until done.
