So for the second day that we had Ganesha at home, I made Steamed Modak with Channa dal, Uppu Kozhukattai and Fried Modak Tamilian version
Kadalai Paruppu Purana Kozhukattai | Channa Dal filled Steamed Modak
Wash and soak the bengal gram for 10 mins. Then covering with enough water, pressure cook for 3 – 4 whistles or till the dal is soft.
Add melted jaggary to the boiled dal and continue to cook till the moisture is all evaporated.
Make into small balls for filling in the rice flour dough.
Pinch out small balls, flatten the rice dough, place the channa dal and enclose as regular modaks.
Steam for 10 mins and allow to cool before handling.
For the purnam
Bengal Gram dal – 1 cup
Jaggary, grated – 1 cup
Cardamon – a pinch
Allow to cool and grind to a smooth paste.
Sesame Seeds – 1/2 cup
Jaggary – 1/2 cup
Steam these again for 15 mins.
