ELLU KOZHUKATTAI RECIPE | GANESHA CHATURTHI RECIPES

Actually i wanted to post a savory version of Kozhukattai  , Uppu Kozhukattai , but few readers requested for ellu kozhukattai , so i wanted to post this ellu modakam today. Will be posting the uppu kozhukattai recipe tomorrow or sunday.  Coming to the recipe of Ellu kozhukattai, though my mom or mil will not make this at home , but i asked a friend  here and she told they make with the normal ellu urundai poornam. So let me share this easy recipe of modakam.
