It is prepared in special occasions like janmashtami and also in baby showers in our region.We Mangaloreans like sweets made of jaggary very much and mainly all sweets contain jaggary and coconut in it.Its a little tricky and hard work is required in preparing this sweet but the end result is worth all efforts.In my mom's place we prepare this sweet for Janmashtami for Shri Krishna as one of the prasadh.
Traditional method of preparing this dish is little hard,here i am sharing little easy way of doing it.
1 cup rice flour
1 cup jaggary
1 tsp cardamon powder
1/2 tsp black pepper powder
4-6 tsp ghee/oil/coconut oil
oil for frying
Take one ball and flattened it with you hands on the sheet into circle shape.
Similarly do all the balls of the dough.
when it turn golden brown color drain and remove it on kitchen paper towel.

As from last one week i am posting all the recipes related to Prasadam and today on this auspicious day i thought why not post this delicious, our ganapati Bappa's favourite Modakam.
There are two ways of preparing these modakam ,we at home do Shekke(steam) Modakam for Ganapati.Also in this auspicious day this year my parents are with me at our home.With my Mom's guidance i prepared many prasadam this time(say all together 11).So thought why not share the same with you all.
Servings: 15 counts
- for the outer covering:
- 1cup rice flour
- pinch of salt
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 tsp ghee
- for filling:
- 1/2 cup jaggary
- 1/2 cup fresh grated coconut
- 1 tsp cardamon powder
FOR OUTER COVERING:
Take a pan dry fry rice flour for 1-2 minutes so that raw smell goes.remove it and keep it aside.
Now in the same pan add 3/4 cup water,salt,ghee and when the water comes to boil add rice flour and stir them continuously till it becomes like a ball at the centre.
remove from pan and keep it aside.
FOR INNER FILLING:
when the jaggary is mixed properly and the mixture start to boil add grated coconut and cardamon powder.
Stir them continuously till puran becomes thick and all water is evaporated.
Remove it and keep it aside.
Similarly make all the modakam.
Serve as prasadam to god Ganesha.
Goes well when ate with ghee on top.
Earlier my mom says they used grind raw rice and with that they used to do this modakam.
Also we prepare sweet shekke undalaka and Kara(chili) Modakam along with this.
For Sweet Undalaka we make small round balls of the rice dough and steam them dipping in the coconut-jaggary filling.
For Kara Modakam we fill the Modakam with Kaddle(gram dal) belle ogarsida usali(sundal).
Ganapati Bappa Moraya!
