Kayi kadubu or rice modak recipe explained with step by step pictures. Kayi kadubu or rice modak is prepared using rice, jaggery and coconut. Kayi kadubu or rice modak is a very easy and tasty steamed sweet recipe prepared during ganesha festival.
In Karnataka it is prepared in semicircle shape and is familiar by name kayi kadubu, where kayi translates to coconut. The authentic kayi kadubu recipe invloves soaking and grinding the rice. But I prepare it using rice flour. And in some parts of Karnataka, modaka is a deep fried delicacy and is prepared using maida flour. Actually through out Karnataka varities of sweets and dishes are prepared to celebrate Ganesha chathurthi, a Hindu festival. Chakkuli, kayi kadubu, kari kadubu, modaka, panchakajjaya, varieties of laddus, usli..like this the list goes on.
I have posted a simple version of kayi kadubu with minimum ingredients. Optionally you can add a tsp of roasted poppy seeds and sesame seeds to the stuffing (hoorana). Or if you want to make the kadubu more rich then you can also add dry fruits.
