Modak

 
Today is the last day of Ganesh Chathurthi so I made "Modak" for Prasad. It is a Maharastrian sweet which is served as naivedyam on Ganesh Chaturti.
 

Preparation Time: 15 mins
Cooking Time: 15 mins
Makes : 30-35

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups all purpose flour / Maida
  • 1 tablespoon oil for moyan
  • Oil for deep frying
For Filling
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 3/4 cup grated jaggery  (adjust according to your taste)
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom powder
Method:
1. Combine all purpose flour(Maida), oil for moyan and enough warm water
    and knead into a soft dough.
2. Cover and keep aside for 10 to 15 minutes.
3. For the filling, combine all the ingredients and mix well.
4. Take the dough and make lemon size balls from it.
5. Roll them into small circle, put the filling and then give modak shape.
6. Heat the oil in fry pan and deep fry the modak till they become golden-brown
    in color. Drain on an absorbent paper.
7. Modak is ready to serve.
 
Note: you can also use whole wheat flour instead of Maida...
