RAVA MODAK or SEMOLINA MODAK
Ganesh Festival Special Recipe: Easy Modak Recipe
1 Mix the powdered jiggery with the coconut in a pan or kadai. keep the pan or kadai on a low flame. stirt the mixture.
2 The jageery would start melting at first,later it will continue to cook. Cook this filling mixture till the jagerry starts thickening and it starts to appear dry.
3 Don’t over cook as then mixture would become dense and hard,keeping aside for cooling the filling,as the filling cools it will thicken.
4 Take water in a sauce pan or any pan,sprinkle some oil and salt in it.
5 Bring the water to a rolling boll.
6 Add the semolina or rava to the water.
7 Stir with a wooden spatula or spoon till all th semolina has been incorporated in the water,mix really well.
8 Keep this pan on low fire for 5-6 minutes. continuously stir so that the rava does not stick and get burnt. after 5 minutes switch off the flame. taste a pinch of the dough,if the semolina feels undercooked,then cook for a few more minutes.cover the pan for 5-6 minutes.
9 The dough would be still hot when the kneading has to be done,if you cannot manage the heat,then let it cool for a few more minutes. knead well and make a smooth dough. when kneading apply some oil on your palms. there should be no lumps in the dough after kneading.
10 Now take a lemon sized ball from the dough.
11 Flatten the dough ball on the palm of your hands.
12 Or press the edges with your fingers and keep on moving the dough in a circle.
13 Place a few spoonfuls of the coconut-jagerry mixture filling in the center.
14 Pinch the edges and bring the fluted edges in the centre.
15 Join the centre and pinch off the top. tapper the top. make the modaks in a similar way.
16 These modaks are done now and you don’t need to steam them further. serve the semolina modak to Lord Ganesha.
