1.In a non stick pan add in grated coconut,jaggery,dry ginger powder(if using) and elachi powder.Keep sauteing till it leaves the sides.This is the sweet filling for the kozhukattai.

2.In a deep wide bowl add all the ingredients  for outer dough.Add in some 2 -3 cup  hot water.Mix and keep in heat.Keep stirring till it forms a non sticky dough.Knead well and keep closed from drying.

4.Arrange it in a idli plate and steam it.That's it tasty and healthy modak is ready.


1.You can do alone with foxtail millet flour but it felt difficult to get  anon sticky dough so i added rice flour.
2.Can use other millet flours too.
