Kudukullu preparation method:
For the filling:
Cook coconut and jaggery together on medium heat by stirring continuously.
Add elaichi powder, Khus khus and 1 tea spoon rice flour, cook for some time and remove from the heat and let it cool.
For the outer cover:
Boil 1 cup of water till bubbles rise on top, add ghee, salt and oil and rice flour. Stir well and cover for some time. Remove the lid and stir again and again cover for a minute.
Remove from heat, take the mixture in a flat plate and knead it properly while hot to make soft pliable dough.
Divide this dough into small balls and roll into 1.5 inch diameter circle.
Now hold it in a hand and make a small bowl and put some coconut filling inside it.
Dip thumb and index finger in the oil and make 5-6 small pinches side by side on the edges of the bowl. Bring them together, join to form a peak. It should look like a whole garlic.
Like this, prepare all modaks. Spread a damp cloth onto a flat round sifter and arrange all the modaks onto it. Place the sifter in a steamer and cover and steam for about 15 minutes.
Use a big size saucepan or pressure cooker if you don’t have a steamer. Do not put the whistle if you use the pressure cooker.
Now the Sweet Kudumullu recipe is ready. Offer as Naivedyam for Lord Ganesh and serve.
