Last year, I blogged Paala Undrallu. This Vinayaka Chavithi we prepared a different type of modak aka undrallu recipe. The filling for this particular undrallu is lightly sweetened with jaggery and grated coconut and makes for a healthy sweet.

  1. Hi Sailu,

    mi recipes chala baga untayi. I learnt and prepared many Recipes from your blog. I hope you had a good time yesterday.

  2. Sailugaru,
    You missed mentioning salt in the Undrallu recipe procedure. We prepare it the same way and add the pinch of salt in the water before adding rice flour.

    Another thing how do roll the rice flour mixture? It will be slightly soft right? so will it not stick to our hands? I prepare rice flour rolls and sweet stuffing but I mess up with the stuffing part

    I guess these recipes turn out great with more practice every year.
    lovely Pics!!!

    The key is to knead the cooled dough well till soft and smooth. Slightly grease your hands and roll out using your fingers.

  3. uppu kudumulalo godhuma ravva use cheste white color lo ela vachayi kudumulu. general ga godhuma ravva ante light brown shade lo vuntundi kada.
