Ukadiche Modak {Steamed rice dumplings with coconut and jaggery stuffing}

Edible works of art!

Ministry Of Curry

Ukadiche Modak – an exquisite Maharashtrian delicacy made with steamed rice flour dough, stuffed with aromatic and sweet coconut, jaggery, nutmeg, cardamom and saffron filling. These Modaks are offered to Lord Ganesh and made especially during the ten-day celebration of the Ganesha festival which started this week. There are literally dozens of ways to make a modak, but of course my mom had to spoil us with these luscious, heavenly ‘ukadiche modak’.

  1. I’m having a dumpling fest at the moment …. Must be the temperature dropping below 25 degrees. So I’ve made Mongolian Manti which are a huge favourite this week and also made pierogi last night for the first time. Now I shall try these too … They are SO pretty!
