Ellu Kozhukkattai is very famous & flavourful dish which we make every Ganesh Chathurthi. Coconut sweet Mothagam & Ulunthu Mothagam are also main dishes on that day.I love the flavour of black sesame seed when its roasted .We can replace with white sesame seed instead of Black sesame seed.
Black sesame seed-1/4cup
Cardamom powder-a pinch
In a separate pan add in the grated jaggery with 2 tbsp of water & allow to dissolve & add cardamom powder.
Add in the grated coconut to the jaggery. Allow it to mix & cool.
In separate pan, add sesame seed & roast it until it crackles & grind to a course powder.
Add to the coconut mixture.
Ellu pooranam is ready now.
Well using the smooth paste made by the rice flour & apply little oil in hand & make small balls. Flatten them to a thin sheet & fill in the jaggery mix.
Close from all sides as illustrated . Finish it by steaming in pressure cooker for 5 minutes without whistle.
Can be served hot or cold.
