Ingredients for FILLING:
4 cups grated fresh coconut
4 cups grated jaggery (gud)
1 tbsp freshly prepared cardamom powder
Some dry fruits
Preparation of FILLING:
Knead the dough (wheat / refined flour) with some salt
First roll the dough into 2-3 inch diameter circles. Apply some oil on your palms if it's getting sticky.
Hold the rolled dough on left palm (for right handers) and place a spoonful of filling in the centre.
To give proper shape to the Modak, try to close the rolled dough on the tip (like closing petals of a flower) with your right hand and pinch the ends all around towards the tip of the Modak.
Deep fry Modaks on medium flame until they turn brown and crisp.
