Steamed Modak, sweet coconut stuffed little rice dumplings are festival joy for sure. As we are headed towards a festival of Lord Ganesha this week on September 17th, this space has to have some traditional, authentic recipes of the occasion and that is the only way to be blessed by so called elephant headed God. <= This is true story for food bloggers like me who bound to make festival specific delicacies in advance.
There is something exciting happens at my kitchen or let me tell you, I find myself excited to prepare such artistically pleated rice dumpling with a peak which is stuffed with drool-worthy coconut-jaggery filling. You will get moulds to make steamed modak but here I have tried my hands to get them done.
It’s always wise to get the coconut stuffing prepared before the outer covering. This is because you will not end up with hard or dry rice dumpling which may break while shaping them. With coconut stuffing ready in advance, you can straight away roll the soft rice balls and continue filling, sealing artistically. So get-set-ON with steamed modak for BIG DAY to come.
