Fried modak is made with wheat flour outer covering and coconut, jaggery filling. Deep fried in ghee or oil, it can keep good for few days too. My mom told me this recipe when she was here. I was afraid last year how it would turn out without opening up in oil and if it would spoil the oil. My mom gave me the confidence as she made a lot of this and nothing opened up while frying. She deep fried this in ghee. And she told it kept good without getting spoiled for few days too. So I decided to try this out and it turned out really good. I found it easier than the regular kozhukattai.
Wishing all my readers, friends a happy Ganesh Chaturthi!!
