Kai Kuthal Arisi Sweet Modagam/Hand Pound Rice Modagam

Starting the Sangakala unavu with sweet modagam,I dedicate these modagams to my luvly god Ganesha....


Here is the stepwise procedure...

Measure 200 gms of Hand pound Rice


Add it to the hot ghee in the pan


Roast it for 2-3 minutes in medium flame


Add 400 ml of water and it takes jus 2 minutes to be cooked


It wont be sticky like cooked rice,but luks like cooked rava.


Melt jaggery with little water in med heat,once it started to boil,switch off the gas
(No consistency required for the syrup)


Filter the jaggery syrup to the cooked rice


Mix the jaggery syrup and Rice well


Grate some fresh coconut and add to it


Add some cardomom powder to it


Make some modagam with warm cooked rice


With some desired shapes too...Steam it for 4-5 minutes 


And its ready to serve
