Modagam is a deep fried kozhukattai/modak...Whenever i hear the word "modagam",I remember a song which my dad plays every morning in my childhood..I got up many times hearing the song "Modaga Kaiyal Unakku mudal vanakam..." sung by Sirkazhi Govindarajan...

Jaggery-1 cup
Wheat-4 cup
Maida-1 cup
Salt to taste
Ghee-2 tsp
1.Mix Maida,Wheat and salt and make tight dough with water,
knead it well and rest it for half an hour.
2.Melt jaggery in 1/4 cup of water ,when it thickens,add coconut and ghee
3.Cook until it goes unsticky to pan
4.Make small poori ,stuff the coconut mix and pull the poori dough up ,and press altogether
