I would like to wish my readers a belated Ganesh Chathurthi (Lord Ganesha's Birthday). Kozhukattai or Modak is probably the most symbolic item for this occasion and I would like to share this recipe with you.


1 1/2 cup of  Idiyappam (Rice) Flour
2 3/4  cup of water
2 tsp of Gingelly oil
A pinch of Salt


1/2 cup of grated Jaggery

1/2 cup of roasted peanuts
1 tsp Cardamom Powder


1. Grind the jaggery, peanuts and cardamom together in to a coarse mixture. The filling is ready.

2. Boil water and add oil to it. Add the flour to boiling water and mix well stirring continuously.
3. Add salt, mix well and cook with a covered lid for 2 minutes.
4. Remove from the stove and knead well into a soft dough.

5. Divide the dough into small balls and roll each ball to size of puris.
6. Add filling to the puri and seal the edges. You can make any shape.

7. Repeat the procedure for rest of the modaks. Put these modaks in a steamer/cooker (do not put weight/whistle) and steam for 10-15 minutes.
