Modak

 
Ingredients:
 
1 cup rice flour
1 cup water
1 teaspoon oil
oil for greasing
a pinch of salt

For the filling
1 cup grated jaggery (gur)

1 cup greated fresh coconut

teaspoon cardamom (elaichi) powder

1 tablespoons ghee
 
Method:
 
For the filling, in a non-stick pan, add grated coconut and jaggery and cook overa slow flame till the jaggery melts and the mixture comes together. Add thecardamom powder and mix well.
 
In another non-stick pan boil the water. Add 1 teaspoon oil and a little salt in
the boiling water and stir. Reduce the flame, add the rice flour while stirring
continuously.
 
Whisk well so that no lumps remain. Cover with a lid and keep aside for about 5 minutes.
 
Grease your palms with a little oil and knead the dough while it is still warm; if the dough cools it will get lumpy, if it is not kneaded. You could even use a hand blender to knead the dough.
 
Make even size small balls of the dough (2 inch in diameter) using oil. Then roll each of them into a round shape, 3 ” in diameter.
 
Make 8 to 10 folds in rolled dough with 1 cm. distance in between. To make a fold pinch the outer line of rolled dough a little bit ahead making 1-2 mm thick fold.
 
Add a spoonful of the filling into the dough. Bring all the ends together and press to seal.
 
Prepare a steamer by adding water, a teaspoon of oil and heat it till the water comes to a boil. While the water is simmering, place the modaks on a greased steamer plate and steam for 6 to7 minutes.
