fried modak recipefried modak recipe | talniche modak | maida modak | fry modak with step by step photo and video recipe. modak recipes are a must recipe during the festival season of ganesh chaturthi. there are many different ways the modak can be made which generally differs with the outer layer and/or with the stuffing. one such unique modak recipe is the deep-fried modak recipe made with plain flour as compared to the rice flour.

as promised this is my second modak variation recipe for this year and i had posted the mawa modak recipe recently. it has been quite a few years and i am practising to post a minimum of 2 modak variations each year. i try to make it one modak with filling and another without it. hence this is my fried modak recipe with coconut and jaggery mixture stuffing. to be honest i am not a huge fan of the deep-fried modak and i prefer the steamed ukadiche modak. the main reason being it the traditional way of making modak offering to lord ganesha. moreover it is also a healthy one as it is steamed and not deep-fried. anyway you can always make these deep-fried ones if you need some variation.

anyway, i would like to highlight some of the tips, suggestions and variations for a crisp fried modak recipe. firstly, do not ever attempt to make a fried modak recipe with rice flour. as matter of fact, you can make these with wheat flour too, if you have a reservation to plain flour. secondly, while shaping and locking the modak, ensure it is tightly locked and ensure there is no gap in between. otherwise it may open while deep frying and the stuffing can come out. lastly, do not deep fry these in a high flame and it has to be strictly deep fried in low flame.

notes:

  • firstly, make sure to seal the modak well else it will open up while frying.
  • also, adding rava to the dough gives crunchy modak.
  • additionally, fry on low flame to cook uniformly from inside.
  • finally, fried modak can also be prepared with wheat flour instead of maida.
