How to Make Fried Modak

Memory Flies wishing you all a very Happy Ganesh Chaturthi 2021. May Bappa give you all happiness and health.



I am quite late for this post but I guess Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated for 10 days. In my post, you will learn how to make fried modak.

Modak = smile ๐Ÿ˜€ we all love it very much, right?

What is Modak?

Modak is a dumpling made from rice flour or whole wheat flour with coconut and jaggery stuffing.  It is one of the most favorite foods of Lord Ganesha and offer to him on Ganesh Chaturthi. There are many types of modak. Ukadiche (steamed), Talineche (Fried) chocolate, mava, Kesar, and many more. Out of which Ukadiche modak is the authentic one.

What is Ukadiche modak ?

Ukadiche modak means steam modak made from rice flour with coconut jaggery stuffing. It is generally made in every Maharashtrian House on Ganesh Chaturthi.

What is fried Modak?

Fried Modak is made from whole wheat flour with the same stuffing. Instead of steaming it is fried. It is also one of the healthy options.

 

So let’s learn how to make Fried Modak?

It is a simple recipe that can be made in 4 steps.  Ukadkiche modak is an authentic recipe and requires expertise. But I love this easy Fried modak recipe because it can be stored in the fridge at least for one week. You can make a batch and eat it for one week.๐Ÿ˜‹

Please check out the full step-by-step recipe.

Step 1: Preparing a dough

For this, you require 1 cup of whole wheat flour. Add salt and with the help of water knead a dough. The dough should be tight and not soggy. Covered it with cloth and meanwhile, we can make the stuffing.

 


Step 2: Preparing the Stuffing

For this you require

1 cup of grated coconut

½ cup of jaggery

¾ cup of nuts: almonds, cashew, pista, and prunes. (Whatever you have at your home)

1 tsp cardamom powder

2 tbsp ghee for frying.

Heat ghee and add grated coconut.  Fry this until it turns slightly brown. Now add jaggery and mix it very well. When it starts to stick the bottom switch off the flame. Lastly, add dry fruits and cardamom powder and let it cool.

Step 3: Preparing modak

Check out the dough and knead it with a little bit of oil. Divide this dough into an equal lemon-sized ball. Roll out small puri. Edges should not be thick nor thin they should be medium then only you will get crisp.

 


Now place the coconut stuffing in the center of the puri and make the petals from all sides. Collect all petals together and give the modak shape. Remove the excess dough from the top.

Prepare one full batch of modak.

 


Step 4: Frying modak

Heat enough oil in a deep frying pan. Switch the flame on medium heat and slowly slide one modak.  Fry until it turned out golden color and crisp.

 


Remove it from oil and keep it on the sieve. Let it be cool and then it is ready to serve.

Your fried modak is ready.
