Kobbari Kudumulu (Coconut Modak) – Ganesh Chathurthi Special

Hope you had a wonderful Vinayaka Chavithi. I prepared these kudumulu and some undrallu as offerings for Lord Ganesha.

I prepared two versions of modak: some I steam cooked and some I deep-fried. Both the versions tasted super good. Both versions can be seen in the picture below.


  • 3 cups Rice Flour
  • 1 ½ cups grated Coconut (fresh or dry)
  • 2 cups Jaggery or Sugar
  • 1 tsp Cardamom powder
  • 1 ½ cups Water
  • Some Oil to deep fry (if deep-frying)


Add coconut + jaggery or sugar + cardamom powder to rice flour and mix well. Pour water and prepare a thick batter. Then take small portions of the batter and shape them into desired shapes.

For Steam Cooking:

Place these shaped modaks on idli plates and pressure cook them just like we cook idlis. When heavy steam starts to come out of the cooker nozzle, turn off the flame and allow the cooker to cool down a bit. Then take out the modaks and let them cool completely. Now the modaks are ready!!

Deep-Fry Version:

Drop the shaped modaks carefully into hot oil and deep fry until they turn golden brown. Then transfer them to a plate covered with a paper towel.

Repeat the same process with remaining batter and enjoy the delicious modaks!!
