Recipe –

Step 1:Take a pan and add grated coconut in it. Dry roast the coconut and keep it aside. Now take another pan and add 1 cup water in it. Bring it to a boil. Then add jaggery and allow it to dissolve. When the jaggery mixture starts to thicken, add the roasted coconut.

Step 2:Mix well and bring the flame to medium-high. Then add cardamom powder and stir well. After few seconds, turn off the flame, remove and keep the mixture aside. Now to prepare the dough, add rice flour in a bowl and add 1 cup of hot water in it. Add sesame oil and salt.

Step 3:Stir the mixture well and make sure it is free of lumps. The dough should not be too tight. Now, take a portion of the dough and with the help of a rolling pin, shape them into small cups. Add a spoonful of the coconut-jaggery filling and close the edges of the dough using your hands. Cover and then steam cook the modaks until done. Once done, transfer these little delights in a serving plate.
