Fried Modak Recipe for Ganeshotsav

Here’s a simple and fast fried Modak recipe especially for Ganeshotsav.You can use wheat flour/ maida (all-purpose / refined flour). There are three parts to the preparation of Modak:
  1. FILLING
  2. DOUGH 
  3. FRYING
Quantity: Approximately 25-30 Modaks

Ingredients for FILLING:
4 cups grated fresh coconut
4 cups grated jaggery (gud)
1 tbsp freshly prepared cardamom powder
Some dry fruits

Preparation of FILLING:
Modak Filling
Heat some pure ghee. Ensure you maintain medium flame. Fry the dry fruits. Add grated fresh coconut and grated jaggery and keep mixing on heat. After jaggery melts and mixes properly with coconut, add cardamom powder and mix well.

DOUGH:
Knead the dough (wheat / refined flour) with some salt

FRYING:
First roll the dough into 2-3 inch diameter circles. Apply some oil on your palms if it's getting sticky.
Hold the rolled dough on left palm (for right handers) and place a spoonful of filling in the centre.

To give proper shape to the Modak, try to close the rolled dough on the tip (like closing petals of a flower) with your right hand and pinch the ends all around towards the tip of the Modak.

Deep fry Modaks on medium flame until they turn brown and crisp.
