Double Decker Modak Recipe Card


Hindi: chawal
How many times have we thought rice is a blessing? We use it for holy purposes but we also can pressure up a quick pulao or khichdi when hunger pangs are drumming away! This is one grain that is about 98% percent digestible. In India we are familiar with Basmati, Patna or brown rice but it is also available as Italian Rice and Glutinous Rice which is popular in Chinese and Japanese cuisines.

Step 1

Boil 1¼ cup water in a non-stick pan. Add 1¼ cups rice flour and mix well. Cook for 5-6 minutes, sprinkling a little water from time to time and mixing well till it forms a dough. Wrap dough in a damp cloth and keep aside.

Heat 1 tbsp ghee in another non-stick pan. Add fresh coconut and sauté for 1-2 minutes. Add green cardamom powder, jaggery, sugar and mix well. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Transfer into a bowl and set aside.
