Modak / Sweet Kolukattai / Poorna Kolukattai


Ingredients:

Home Made Rice Flour - 1 cup
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Bengal Gram - 1 cup
Jaggery - 1 cup
Cardamom - 5










Cooking Instructions:

Modak / Kolukattai is the main offering / neivedyam offered to Lord Ganesha during the festival of Vinayaka Chaturthi / Ganesh Chaturthi. Vinayaka Chaturthi is celebrated as the birthday of Lord Ganesha. To know more about, Vinayaka Cahturthi, click HERE.

we can use ready made rice flour available in stores also but it will be little hard when cooked. This is the reason for why we are using home made rice flour.

To prepare rice flour at home. soak the rice in water for about 30 minutes and drain the water completely. Let the rice to dry under sun well. Grind the rice to a fine powder without adding water.



Grind the cardamom to a fine powder. Grind jaggery to fine powder. Cook the bengal gram in a pressure cooker for 3 whistles in high flame and drain the excess water. Now grind the cooked dhal little coarse without adding water and now add jaggery powder and cardamom powder to it and grind once to mix them together. Filling / poornam is ready.

Take a cup of rice flour and add salt to it and add lukewarm water to it and form a dough. the dough should not be too hard or too soft. Prepare it to the consistency of chapati dough.



Grease your hands with melted ghee or oil. Take a big lemon size rice flour dough and flatten them with ur hands to a little circle. Now place a gooseberry sized ball of filling in the center of the circle and seal all the edges of the rice flour dough. kolukattai is ready to cook.

Place all the kolukattais in the idli cooker and steam it for about 5 to 10 minutes.
Sweet Kolukattai is ready to serve.
