PROCEDURE

In a bowl combine the whole wheat flour and melted 1/2 cup of ghee, mix well until you get a bread crumbs texture. Use milk to kneading the dough, make a stiff dough.

Divide the dough in lemon size balls. The balls should be firm such that it should not break or crumble while frying.

Preheat the ghee in kadhai, turn the heat low and add 2-3 balls at a time into the hot ghee. Fry these balls until turn golden brown in color. Be patient , it takes time for the balls need to get cooked from inside as well. Don’t get tempted to turn the heat to high to fasten the process.

Allow the balls to turn brown gradually. Once you have finished frying all the balls, allow them to cool completely.

Once cool, crush them in food processor to form a coarse powder like bread crumbs. Add the nutmeg powder , coarsely grounded dry fruits and poppy seeds to the mixture and combine well. Add shredded jaggery to the mixture and combine well by rubbing it between your pams.

Once you feel the mixture is reasonably soft, grease the Modak mold with ghee. Fill the Modak mixture in molds, to gave nice shape. You also make shapes with your hands too.

MODAK are ready to offer Ganesha!!!!

TILACHI CHIKKI

I prepare all kind of chikki at home.

Til chikki, mamra chikki, peanut and daliya etc.

I have grown seeing my mom making these delicious sweets each year with great enthusiasm.

It might seems tricky at first but once you learn the trick its actually easy and quite quick to make chikki.

I have made both til chikki and til ladoo.

Laddoo and chikki both are made from same material Jaggery and sesame.

Just instead of rolling flat you need to make balls from it.

Just be
careful while making tilgul laddu as the hot jaggery might burn your hand.
INGREDIENTS
Til                                                             100 Gms

85cfef5f-e9cb-4068-87da-3fd02edadf0f

Prepare flat surface by applying ghee on it, also grease rolling pin to avoid
chikki sticking to it.

Take the mixture on greased surface. Greased your palm with ghee form a big round ball and spread it little by hand.

95c6090b-118e-443f-89f1-9fe5270cdb3a
