Hi there! It’s such an interesting recipe, I hope I will be able to try this at home, I always look for different types of cuisine to try out with my family, here in Italy. I’ll absolutely try this and all the other recipes in this channel, they look amazing! In this particular one I found interesting the fact that you twice cooked the flour (before along with ghee and water and after steaming it). I hope I’ll finds all the ingredients out! Thank you so much!

when you are making the modak cover you should start pressing from out side to inside…not inside to out…thats why your modak cover’s edges were breaking..
