Ellu Kozhukattai/Ellu dumpling / Sesame seeds kozhukattai with rice flour recipe with no moulds

Sesame seeds kozhukattai(ellu kozhukattai) is a delicious recipe and specially made on the auspicious day of Vinayaka Chaturti(Ganesh Chaturti). This is another traditional dish we do for neivedhyam for Lord Ganesha along with Thengai Purna kozhukattai.

This is so simple to make and tastes yummy. Especially black Sesame Seeds are particularly rich in iron, so they’re highly recommended for those with anemia and weakness. So even if you are not doing this dish for neivedhyam, we can make this filling alone and have it if we have anemia or weakness. Black sesame seeds combined with jaggery is a tasty and iron rich filling.

We can also use white or brown variety of Sesame seeds. Basically ellu pooranam for this kozhukattai is prepared by making jaggery syrup. Sometimes ellu pooranam may become chewy or hard if the consistency of syrup goes wrong. So, today I have shared a no cook version of pooranam.

Just wash and soak ellu/sesame for 20 mins. Drain water and spread it to dry on kitchen towel at room temperature. Then transfer it to bowl, mix it with jaggery, shredded coconut and cardamom powder. Your filling or pooranam is ready for kozhukattai.
