Ellu kozhukattai recipe with step by step pictures – Vinayagar chaturthi recipes- Mothagam with Sesame, jaggery and coconut stuffed modaks, perfect for the celebration!
Ellu kozhukattai recipe (semsame stuffed kozhukattai) is one we make every year for Vinayagar Chaturthi/ Ganesh chaturthi. Actually we make ellu urundai and for the sake of offering 3 varieties of kozhukattai for Pillayar, we prepare few kozhukattai with the same ellu urundai stuffed inside the kozhukattai. As a kid I used to like only Ulundu kozhukatai, and never touch vella kozhukattai with channa dal poornam, I just give the sweet stuffing to someone and eat the outer layer alone 😉 . But now, I love to have both. Ellu kozhukattai I just taste, but never used to eat lot as we our-self make very few.
But after coming here to Singapore and started celebrating pillayar chathurthi, I haven’t tried this ellu kozhukattai, but wanted to try this year and blog it so that I will remember and refer the recipe. This year we have no celebrations as somebody passed away, so I made these just for blogging sake. Though my mom makes in a slightly different method, its more or less same. I made just to stuff the sesame inside instead making it as ellu urundai.
