How to make Ukadiche Modak

  1. Dry roast the poppy seeds and sesame seeds in a kadai or a pan.
  2. Heat a deep pan (non-stick), add jaggery and cook over low heat till the jaggery melts, while stirring continuously.
  3. Add coconut, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, cardamom powder and nutmeg powder. Saute for a minute.
  4. Mix well and cook this mixture till the moisture from the jaggery begins to dry.
  5. Add a bit of rice flour to this mixture (this helps to absorb moisture from the filling, if any). Add nuts and mix well.
  6. Remove from heat and keep the mixture aside.
  7. Heat a deep pan. Add 1 & 3/4 cup of water, ghee, salt and sugar. Bring it to a boil.
  8. Reduce the flame and add the rice flour gradually. Stiring continously.
  9. Stir till all the rice flour is mixed with the water. Remove from heat and cover with a lid for 10 minutes.
  10. Now take the dough and knead it till well combined.
  11. Before you start shaping the modaks, keep water for steaming in a pan.
  12. Grease the modak mold with ghee. Add the dough to it and form the shape. Fill the stuffing and close. Bring the modak out of the mould.
  13. Once all the modaks are done, place them in the steamer decks, which is lined with muslin cloth. Steam for 15- 20 minutes on a medium flame.
  14. When the ukadiche modaks are steamed, drizzle a few teaspoons of ghee on the modaks.
My Tip: While kneading:The dough will be hot when you begin to knead. If you feel the dough is hard or dense, add a few teaspoon of warm water or/and a tablespoon of ghee on the dough and knead well.
