 The stuffing for Fried Modak is similar to that of Ukadiche Modak. The outer cover of this modak is made from wheat flour and the Ukadiche modak has a rice flour covering. Ukadiche Modak are steamed unlike Fried modak which is deep fried.I made Ukadiche Modak last week which are my favorite. Ritesh likes Fried Modak more, so these are for him and obviously for Ganpati Bappa:)

To make modak
Take small balls of the dough, roll it into small puris. To make the modak crispy the puri should be thin.
To make modak of same size cut out the puri with a round shaped cutter. I have used the cover of a container.

Now spread spoonful of stuffing over the puri.
Fold the edges as shown in the picture and gather them in the center.  Seal it properly.

Heat oil and deep fry the modaks. The oil should be not too hot as the modak can get burnt and remain uncooked from inside. Stir them at regular interval to make sure that they are cooked from all sides.
