Authenticook Presents Modak Cooking Class in Mumbai
Modak is an Indian sweet popular in many parts of India. It is the favourite sweet of the Hindu deity, Lord Ganesha. During Ganesh Chaturthi, the Prayers always concludes with an offering of 21 Modaks to Ganesha as Prasadam.
There is something irresistible about Modaks (sweet dumplings), the soft, pretty pleated rice flour wraps with a filling of jaggery and coconut. The most important part in the process is ‘pleating the modaks’. Home-chef Anita has mastered the art of shaping and pleating/ crafting the modaks for an awesome aesthetic look.
So, if you are also one of those big fans of this mouth-watering sweet dish, here is your chance to learn some from scratch.
This entire experience is for women only.
I will then show you how to knead the dough. You will have your own batch of dough to knead.
After that, we shall start the process of cooking the filling. All the recipes will be shared with you on the day of the class.
Then starts the assembling, this will take time but I will show you how to pleat the perfect modak. We shall do it again and again if need be, till you get the pleating right.
When you are done preparing the modaks, we shall learn how to steam them.
At the end of the class, you get to take your modaks home for you and your family to relish
