Modhagam is a traditional type of kozhukattai. I learnt this recipe from my grandmother.
What you need
Broken raw rice - 1 cup
Jaggery, grated – 3/4 cup
Ghee - 2 tbsp
Sesame seeds, black - 1 tsp
Coconut, grated – 1/4 cup
Water - 2 1/2 cups
Cardamom powder – 1/4 tsp
In a pressure pan roast the sesame seeds and keep aside.
In the same pan add ghee and fry the rice for two minutes.
In another vessel add jaggery and 2 1/2 cups of water and boil. Add this boiling jaggery mix to the fried rice.
Add roasted sesame seeds, grated coconut and cardamom powder. Pressure cook for ten minutes on a low flame. When the cooked mixture cools down, make into small round balls. Steam these balls in an idly cooker for ten minutes.
