For the Outer Covering:

Outer Covering:
1. In a pot, bring 1¼ cups of water to a boil.
2. Add a teaspoon of ghee and a pinch of salt to the boiling water.
3. Reduce the heat to low and slowly add the rice flour while stirring continuously to avoid lumps.

1. While the dough is still warm, knead it gently to make it smooth.
2. Take a small amount of dough and roll it into a ball. Flatten it to form a small disc.
3. Place a spoonful of the prepared filling in the center of the disc.
4. Gently gather the edges and pinch them together to create a pleated pattern at the top, sealing the modak.
