These are called as "Ukadiche Modak" or steamed rice flour buns. They are filled with a sweet filling. These are made during Ganesh (elephant God) festival in India as an offering.
Combine coconut & jaggery and cook over a simmer for 10 mins. The jaggery should melt & combine with the coconut to make a sticky mixture. Put a pinch of cardamom at the end. The mixture is ready.
Simmer the water so that its warm.
Combine rice flour & warm water in the pan over a stove. It should form a sticky but not runny dough. You can add more water if needed. Cook for 5-7 mins. Stop the stove & cover the pan
Transfer the rice dough and knead it while its warm. U can dip your hand in cold water in between so that its not too hot to handle. Knead it in a such a way to form it in a nice soft dough.
Make lemon size balls out of the dough. Take each ball and start moulding it into a small cup. Pour a spoonful of the coconut jaggery mixture into the centre of the rice cup.
Steam them covered for about 10 mins
After steaming they look a bit translucent. They are ready to eat.
Eat them while they are hot. If you like savory stuff u can substitute the filling with any savory filling that you like. This is my first video on snap guide. Hope you like it. Thanks for watching
