Fried Modaks

Steps to make Fried Modaks:

1: Sieve the flour with salt and add warm oil to the sieved flour.

2: Add water and knead to a smooth dough.



4: Take fresh or desiccated coconut, jaggery, roasted sesame seeds, cardamom & nutmeg powder in a kadai or pan.

5: Mix them all.

6: Add water.

7: Cook the whole mixture on a low or medium flame.

8: Stir for some 8-10 minutes till the jaggery melts, the water dries up and mixture is cooked & dry. keep the mixture aside to cool.

9: Take a small sized ball of the dough.

10: With a rolling pin gently make a thin round dusting the surface or the dough ball with some dry flour.

11: Take the rolled dough circle on your palm add the some spoonfuls of the filling in the center of the thin round.

12: This is an optional step – with a brush or with your finger tip, apply water on the circular edge. keep a small bowl of water on your work surface.

13: Now start pinching the edges one by one. this comes from practice. so the more you make modaks, the more efficient you will be :-)

14: Bring all the pinched ends together and taper the center.

15: Make all modaks this way and keep aside. cover with a cloth so that the dough does not dry out.



16: Heat oil and deep fry or shallow fry the modaks on medium temperature.



17: Drain the modaks on kitchen paper napkins. makes about 10-12 modaks.

Eco Friendly Ganesha Idols


Festivals are moment of great joy and belebration, and in our country people show their faith in unique ways.

Simple rituals take on a different color and with each passing year, they become more cumbersome, the celebrations being on a grandiose scale. During Ganesh Chaturthi, however, the celebration fever reaches a high pitch and everything else is given a go-by. Devotion and faith is only one aspect. What is of more concern is the question of pollution. During Ganesh Festival, people should give a thought to the water bodies of the city.
