First, add rice and gluten free flour into a bowl. Add salt, ghee and mix well. Add milk. Milk gives a nice white color to the modak.
Add water and knead the dough like a chapatti dough. The dough should neither be too thick nor too thin. It should have medium consistency.
Roast the coconut for about 2-3 minutes until the moisture in it is removed. Add jaggery, dry fruits and mix well.
Take a small ball of dough and make it even. Press the ball a little between your palms and roll it nicely. Take the puri in your hands and pinch the edges to make petals.
Pinch the petals upto the bottom so that the modak gets a nice shape. Fill the stuffing and close the petals. Transfer the modak into the steamer.
Sprinkle a little saffron milk on the modak. Heat up 2-3” water and transfer the pot containing modak on it.
Close the lid and steam modak on medium heat for around 10 minutes. Turn off the gas. Gluten free modak is ready!
