Easy Modak Recipe: Here’s How To Make Modak
Jaggery and grated coconut are added to a hot pan. Then add nutmeg and saffron. Cook for five more minutes. Boil water and ghee in a large pot. Add the flour and salt. Mix well. Cook the dish with a cover until it is halfway done. While the dough is still hot, knead it thoroughly while coating the bottom of a steel basin with ghee. Now take a small amount of dough, form it into a ball, press it flat, and shape the edges into a flower pattern. Fill the dough with a dollop of the filling, then close it. Steam the dumplings for 10 to 15 minutes while they are enclosed in a muslin cloth. Serve and enjoy!
