  • 1 Cup water
  • 1 tbsp ghee (clarified butter)
  • A pinch of salt
  • For the filling
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated coconut
  • 1/4 cup grated jaggery (palm sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1 tbsp raisins
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tsp poppy seeds

How to make Ukadiche Modak

  1. For the Filling
  2. In a pan dry roast the poppy seeds and sesame seeds, remove into a bowl and set it aside.
  3. In the same pan now add jaggery with a tsp of ghee so that it melts well and doesn't stick to the pan.
  4. Once the jaggery melts, add in the fresh grated coconut.
  5. Next in, add the roasted poppy seeds and roasted sesame seeds.
  6. Top it with the nuts and cardamom powder.
  7. Combine well and the stuffing is ready.
  8. For the Ukadi (outer covering)
  9. In a deep pan bring the water to a boil.
  10. Add a tsp of ghee, and a pinch of salt and sugar each to the water. Next, add the rice flour to the mixture and mix well.
  11. Cook for 2 min, then switch off the flame and cover it with a lid for 5 mins. To form the dough, bring down the rice flour mix onto a surface and start forming a dough by slowing adding a little ghee whenever needed.
  12. Once smooth, its ready to shape the modaks. Grease the modak mould with ghee, stuff in the dough, form the shape, fill the stuffing and close.
  13. Once all the modaks are done, place them onto the steamer decks, which have been lined with baking paper or muslin cloth. Plantain leafs can be used if available. (I used a colander set over a large pot of boiling water)
  14. Steam for 15- 20 mins on a medium flame. Pour in some melted ghee onto the steaming hot modaks and they are ready to be served.
