Ingredients -

Jaggery - 1 cup grated
Coconut grated - 1 cup
Rice flour - 1 cup
water - 1 cup
oil - 1 tsp + for greasing
Green cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp

Method -

1. Heat a non stick pan and put the jaggery in it, 

    when it melts add the grated coconut and fry it in
    a low heat for 5 minutes, add cardamom powder 
    and take it off the heat.
2. In a large bottomed pan heat a cup of water,

    add 1 tsp oil, when it comes to boil reduce the 
    flame and add the rice flour in it and keep whisking
    it until it is all mixed up, whisk well to avoid any lumps.
3.  Cover and keep aside for 2 minutes, take it out of

     the pan, grease your palm and knead the dough on
     a flat surface while it is still warm. Knead it to a 
     smooth dough.
4. Take 2 tbsp oil in a small bowl, grease your 
     palms with it, take a little dough, roll it into a
     small ball, flatten it between palms, and roll it in a
     round shape like a puri  using your fingers into
     a 3'' diameter.
5. Make 8-9 folds in it pinching it 1/2 inch ahead
    as we make in momos.
6. Fill  a spoonful of the filling in the middle of the
    fold and close it bringing all the ends together, 
    seal the edges, make all likewise.
7. Prepare a steamer or a momo maker, pour a glass
   of water, cover and keep it to boil.
8. Grease the upper steamer plate with ghee or oil,
    place the modaks in it and keep it to steam for
   10 minutes or until the modaks become translucent.
9. Take it out on a plate and drizzle it with ghee and

    make an offering to your beloved God and serve
    it as prasad to everyone....!!
