Ingredients to make Ammini Kozhakattai (Modak)

  • 1.5 cups rice flour
  • 1.5 cups boiling water
  • 1/2 cup scalding milk
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1 sprig curry leaves torn into small bits
  • 1 pinch asafetida
  • 1/4 teaspoon chilli powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons shredded coconut
  • lime juice for drizzling

How to make Ammini Kozhakattai (Modak)

  1. Combine the salt and rice flour in a mixing bowl. Add the hot milk to the boiling water. keep the hand blender running on low, & slowly drizzle the water into the flour and knead it until it comes together (you may not need all the liquid)
  2. Once the flour can easily be scooped up into a large single ball, cover with a wet towel and allow the dough to cool. This helps to hydrate the rice flour thoroughly.
  3. Fill the dough into a pastry bag fitted with a star nozzle. when squeezed, this gives rise to tiny pea sized portions that resemble real modaks.
  4. Steam these dumplings for about 10-12 minutes. Remove the plate and allow the dumplings to cool slightly after which they can be easily picked off the cool metal plate.
  5. Another alternative would be to pipe them onto banana leaves . I find that greasing the surface prevents the piped out dumpling from adhering to the surface, so no oil / grease required at all.
  6. Transfer the steamed morsels into a large bowl
  7. Heat the oil ina skillet, add the mustard, once it sputters, add the curry leaves, asafetida, salt, chili powder. Pour this mix over the steamed modaks and fold in
  8. Finish by sprinkling the coconut over the modaks, and drizzle with lime juice.
My Tip: This is my hands free way of making these addictive morsels. for details, here's my video short of the process.
