NIRVIGHNAM KURUMEDEVA SARVA KARYESHU SARVADA
O Ganapati, One with a curved trunk, a large body, and a brilliance equal to a crore (10 million) suns! O God, please make all my undertakings free from Obstacles always.
We all love to celebrate Ganesha Chaturthi dont we?..People of any age group indulge in celebrating Lord Ganapathi on this day to seek blessings and victory in any task they do..
Today, I made the traditional kadubu also called modak..Kadubu comes in various forms, either a steamed one or a deep fried one..I chose to deep fry today:)..Here is how you do it..
2cups fresh coconut
1.5 cups jaggery
1tsp cardamom poweder
1/2 cup water
For the stuffing: take a heavy bottom kadai. Now add jaggery and water and stir till all the jaggery melts. To this add the grated coconut and cardamom powder and keep stirring till all the water evoporates and forms a thick mass (6-7mins)..
For the dough
2tbps sooji/chiroti rava
2tsp melted butter
Make a dough like poori dough and keep it aside for 10mins.
make small tiny pooris, place a tsp of stuffing and close the outer edges to form a semi circle. You can seal the edges with sugar water. Now deep fry these kadubus till crispy and golden and enjoy..
