Sugiyan is a traditional offering to God especially for Vinayaka chaturti or auspicious occasions like Ganapathy Homam etc. Instead of making steam cooked thengaai purana kozhukattai, we need to coat the coconut jaggery filling with urdal and rice flour based batter and then deep fry each of them till they are crispy. This Fired Modak stays even for 3-4 days as we are deep frying the modak.

  1. Wash and soak the urad dal in water and set it aside for 1 hour
  2. Meanwhile, heat a pan. Add grated coconut and grated jaggery and mix well. 
  3. Add cardamom powder and keep stirring. The jaggery starts to melt and begins to incorporate with the grated coconut.

  5. Make small balls out of this filling and set it aside
  6. After 1 hour, drain water from soaked urad dal. Grind the urad dal to a thick paste
  7. Take the urad dal paste to the vessel. Add rice flour, pinch of salt and mix well. Add water if necessary to make it to a thick paste
  8. Heat oil in a pan for deep frying the sugiyans. Take each filling ball and coat it with urad dal batter and gently drop it in hot oil. 
  9. Deep fry the sugiyan in medium flame till they are crispy
  10. The crispy and delicious sugiyan is all ready for neivedhyam or serving!
