More About Ukadiche modak

As we always make fried suji modak for Ganesha, so I never tried ukadiche modak before, this was my first time try and its comes perfect one of friends mother in law makes ukadiche modak delicious so I asked her how to make and give some tips to make modak as she is making modak from last 65 years.

All her tips and tricks are so perfect in my first attempt that the only modak is very tasty and delicious not single modak broke.

We need little practice to make petals, so I tried 8-10 times only to make petals as I want 11- 13 petals.

I use little maida to make the dough as maida gives more stickiness to the dough and nice modak petals come. In stuffing add little sugar so that stuffing becomes more sticky.
