Sukhiyan/sugiyan/modakam Recipe

Sukhiyan, also known as sugiyan or modakam, is a popular South Indian sweet snack made with a filling of sweetened mung bean paste encased in a crispy batter. It is a traditional dish often prepared during festivals and special occasions. The mung bean paste is flavored with coconut, jaggery, and cardamom, giving it a deliciously sweet and aromatic taste. The outer batter is made with a combination of rice flour and lentil flour, which gives the sukhiyan its unique texture and crunchiness.
