Steamed spicy modak with vegetables, plum and star fruit slices

Steamed modak (whole wheat + ragi/nachani/millet flour) with spicy vegetables : Roo loves Samosa. This is easier and healthier version of Samosa/ in modak shape. Aalloo matar vegetables r good.
I made vegetables as : In little oil add cumin seeds, mustard seeds, turmeric, curry leaves, ginger garlic paste, mint leaves, coriander leaves, chopped onions, garam masala(any), carrots, green peas, finely cut green beans and long beans (chavali), spinach leaves (any greens), salt, sugar, lemon juice.
I mixed ragi flour (nachani /millet flour - Millets have high protein) with some whole wheat flour and made the dough with milk. Thats why the color. rolled into tortilla (roti) and made modak or samosa shape and steamed it for 8-10 minutes.
with Ketchup.
plum and star fruit slices. Star fruit looks and smells so beautiful makes me feel like eating it right away...but the truth is It doesn't taste that beautiful. Roo eats a slice or 2 not much thumbs up from her.

1 modak, ketchup untouched and one starfruit slice came back in the lunchbox.


  1. Liked the recipe...I'll try it :)

  2. will surely try this one....great job!!

  3. Hi, loved ur steamed ragi modaks/samosa. My daughter loves the regular ukadiche modak as well as regular samosas, so I'll try this ragi version. I'm curious about the steamed version, does ragi steam well?

  4. Thank you all :) I mix ragi flour with whole wheat flour or atta but not tried only ragi flour...It should work well in steaming...
