Ukdiche Modak with Oats, a modern take on traditional recipe

Ukdiche Modak with Oats is a modern take on traditional Maharashtrian delicacy.  Modaks are traditionally made with rice flour & filling of coconut & jaggery, and then steamed to the perfection and served with a drizzle of Ghee.

To give Ukdiche modak a healthy twist, I have  added oats powder majorly and little bit of rice flour.

This experimental recipe using oats was highly successful, as no one came to know that it was prepared by using oats.

Here is the nutririon dense version Ukdiche Modak with Oats, where modaks have been prepared using oats. I am sure you all are going to love this.

Make even size small balls of the dough. Make a well in the centre and keep spreading it with your finger tips.

Make 8 to 10 folds in rolled dough, according to the size of dough ball, by pinching its corners, and keeping distance in between.
Add a spoonful of the stuffing into the dough.

Or simply use the Modak mould to make it, which is easily available at the stores.

Prepare a steamer by adding water, a teaspoon of oil and heat it till the water comes to a boil.

While the water is simmering, place the modaks on a greased steamer plate leaving little space between each piece of Modak.  Steam for about 7 to 8 minutes.

Once the modaks are cooked check it by inserting a knife. If It comes out clean that means it’s perfectly steamed.
