Use TSP’s Modak Flour to make super soft modak dough and quick modaks every time. TSP’s Modak Peeth is very reasonable. In the similar price range, you can make more modaks at home than what you will be able to buy from the markets.
‘Ukadiche modak’ are traditional sweet dumplings made of rice flour with a filling of shredded coconut and jaggery inside. Here’s a sneak peek into how you can use TSP’s modak flour to make yummy modaks in no time.
Make the modak stuffing by grating equal quantities of fresh coconut and jaggery. Cook both of these together in a pan and then let the mixture cool down. Set aside for later.
Add TSP’s Modak Peeth to boiling water which has a small spoon of ghee added to it. Mix the Modak Peeth well and leave it in the pan for a few minutes after the flame is switched off. Transfer it to a plate and knead the dough properly till it is soft.
Make balls out of the dough. To make the dumplings, flatten each ball to a disc or bowl-like shape with your palm. Use a little ghee if required.
Place a little quantity of the premade coconut and jaggery stuffing in the center of the modak, press all the modak edges together and close the dumpling.
Readymade modak moulds are also available in the market that can give you the perfect shape. But if you don’t have them, modaks can be easily shaped by hand and there are many tutorials available on the web that show you how to mold themes easily.
Steam the prepared modaks for about 15 minutes on medium flame. This can be done in a pan over a pot of boiling water or by using a steamer.
Additional tips –
Add a little warm water while kneading the dough if it seems too dry. Cover the modaks with a moist muslin cloth while rolling and shaping to avoid drying and cracking the dumplings
