FAQs on Orange Modak

1. Can I substitute fresh oranges with canned oranges?

It's best to use fresh oranges as they give a natural flavour. Canned oranges may lack the same freshness and contain added sugars or preservatives.

2. How can you avoid stickiness when making Orange Modak dough?

Usually, modak dough becomes sticky due to excessive moisture. Add some butter or ghee to the mixture to prevent stickiness when making the dough.

3. What if my dough becomes too dry or crumbly?

If the dough is too dry, add a few drops of warm water until the right consistency is achieved. Mix it well to distribute the moisture evenly.

4. Can I replace rice flour with all-purpose flour for the dough?

While you can use all-purpose flour, traditional modaks are made with rice flour, which gives it a unique texture. If you use all-purpose flour, the texture and taste of Orange Modaks will differ.

5. How should I garnish the modaks?

You can add saffron strands or nuts of your choice to garnish the modaks. Orange Modak is frequently topped with dry fruits such as almonds, cashews, or more to enhance the flavour.
