* Almonds- 8-10
* Cashews- 8-10
* Melon seeds- 2 tbs

* Make a smooth paste of rice. If you are taking rice flour then leave this step. Cut all the dry fruits and keep aside.
* Take a nonstick kadahi , pour ghee. Add the smooth paste of rice. Mix salt. Let it dry on medium flame. Keep stirring. When fully dried then turn off the flame.
If you are taking rice flour, as for 2 cups of rice flour add 1.5 cup of water and put flour in a boiling water. Now turn off the flame and cover it for 5 minutes.
* Take out this mixture in a plate and knead well just like flour. You can add 1-2 tsp of water while kneading this dough. Dough should be smooth. Keep aside but cover it.
* Take another nonstick kadahi. Add a little bit of ghee and put jaggery. Let it melt then add coconut mixture and stir it. When it will be dried then mix all the dry fruits and cardamom powder. Stir it till it becomes fully dried. Turn off the flame and let it cool down.
* For making modak, take a small ball from the rice dough and flat it with your palms after rubbing oil. Fill the coconut filling and make plates of the dough with the help of your finger slowly. Make all the Modak- with the same process. You can see the process in my video.
* Take a pressure cooker and add 1 glass of water. For steaming I had used Idli stand. Grease it well and put all Modak in the idli stand. Now close the cooker lid without putting whistle. Steam it for 8-10 minutes.
* After 8-10 minutes, turn off the flame and take out all Modak- in a plate. First offer it to Lord Ganesha.
