To make Modak, boil water and ghee in a pan. Add little salt and rice flour to it and mix well. Now cover the pan with a vessel and leave it to cook. When the rice mixture becomes half cooked, put some ghee in a steel bowl and knead the mixture in it.
Now make small balls of this dough and press them lightly. Spread the dough and make it in the shape of a flower. Fill the mixture prepared with coconut and close the dough well from all sides. Place all the Modaks on a muslin cloth and take them out after steaming them for about 10 to 15 minutes. Delicious Modak is ready.
