First dry roast the hemp seeds lightly in a pan and keep aside.
Then in the same pan, dry roast the sooji / semolina over low-medium heat, stirring in between.
When the sooji starts to change the color slightly, turn off heat and transfer to a plate.
Into the same pan, add oil and turn on the heat.
Add cumin seeds and allow to splutter.
Next add grated ginger, finely chopped green chilies and saute few seconds.
Now pour water along with salt and coconut.
Stir well and allow to boil.
When it comes to rolling boil, lower the heat.
Add roasted semolina slowly, stirring continuously to avoid lump formation.
Cover and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes.
Soon all the water will be absorbed by the sooji.
Turn off heat and transfer the mixture into a mixing bowl.
When it is still warm, start kneading it with greased palm and prepare a smooth dough.
Then add the roasted hemp seeds to the dough and again mix everything till well incorporated.
Now take a modak mold and grease well.
Take small amount of the dough and insert tightly into the mold till the mold is filled completely from all the sides.
Atlast, carefully open the mold. Gently demolud the modak and place over a plate.
Similarly make some more modaks from rest of the dough.
The savory semolina modak with hemp seeds are ready to serve !
