Mulik means "modaka" in kannada which I believe is also called as "modak" in few other languages.
While shopping our weekly groceries we found nice and fresh jackfruit. My husband loves it ! He asked me if I can prepare mulik a snack for people with sweet tooth. Rainy evening was a perfect weather to relax at home and enjoy these little deep fried dumplings.
15-20 jackfruit pieces
1 cup grated or powdered jaggery
cardamom for taste
1/2 cup grated coconut, fresh or frozen
1 cup rava (sooji)
pinch of salt
Oil for deep frying
Isolate jackfruit from its skin and seeds. Cut into small pieces.
In a mixer or blender make a thick paste of cut jackfruit, coconut, cardamom, salt and jaggery. Add water only if required.
To this paste mix sooji. Keep it aside for 15 minutes.
Make small balls and deep fry it on simmer.
Prepartion time: 45 minutes
Note: I used upma rava. You can prepare it with idly rava also.
