This is another method of making Modakas which i usually follow. The recipe for filling is mentioned in the previous post. Click here to know about it http://nimmyskitchen.blogspot.in/2012/09/modak-kozhukatta-one-method.html
2 cups Boiled rice (i use ponni boiled rice)
3 tbsp Oil (preferably coconut oil)
Salt to taste
- Soak rice overnight or for 6 to 7 hours and grind it into a fine paste with little water and salt. Don't grind with lot of water, because it will be difficult while making the dough. (you can see the consistency of the batter in the picture given below).
- In a kadai, put oil and pour the batter and then switch on the heat on medium.
- Keep on stirring till it thickens and you will be able to make the dough. (video is shown, i had taken the video with my mobile and as lighting was poor, it is not clear).
- You can see in the video that while stirring the batter is not sticking to the kadai. (iam not using a non stick kadai)
- Take it off from heat and transfer it to a big plate. Mix well by using your hand. No need to cover and knead the dough.
- When it is still hot and you are able to handle, take small balls out of it and spread it in your palms as thin as possible. (picture is shown below)
- Put some filling in the centre and close it to form the shape of modakas.
- If you are not able to make the shape, just make it round. Shape doesn't matter, but the taste will be too good. I couldn't make the perfect shape:(
- Put the modakas in a steamer and steam it for about 10 minutes till it is cooked.
- Transfer into a bowl and serve.
