How to Make Steamed Modak

  • Boil the water with salt, sugar and oil.
  • Add rice flour and cook on a slow flame till it forms a soft lump.
  • Cool slightly and knead with greased hand till smooth.
  • For filling:
  • Cook coconut and jaggery, stirring continuously, over a low flame till the jaggery melts and the paste thickens.
  • Add poppy seeds and cardamom powder.
  • To make the modak:
  • Take a lime sized ball of the dough on your left palm.
  • Flatten into the size of a small poori, with the edges thinner than the centre.
  • Place a little filling in the centre and gather the edges and bring them up to enclose the filling, making a conical shape.
  • Steam all the modaks for 15 mins.
