Sheetal Kamat

Today I decided to try puran poli as well.. Puran poli came up well except its sides which didn't have any puran but i guess with 2-3 more trials i might be able to prepare the puran poli as nice as my mom does.. But anyways with the remaining puran i made these fried modaks which my dad loves..

Fried Modak
1 cup chana daal
1/2 cup jaggery
4 spoon heaps wheat flour
2 spoon heaps maida

  • Cook daal in the cooker and remove the water from it
  • Heat a pan and add the cooked daal and jaggery.
  • Cook it for around 5-7 minutes to form puran - our filling for the modak
  • Make dough by mixing wheat flour, maida, 1 spoon of hot oil and water
  • Keep aside for half an hour to hour
  • Make small balls of the dough and roll them to form thin rotis of puri size
  • Add the puran we had prepared earlier and close the modaks by making few plates at the top
  • Deep fry the modak on medium heat

These modaks are prepared of puran so that they can stay for 2-3 days.
Fry the modak at top side really well otherwise the cover might remain half cooked as its kind of thick because of plates
