Ellu poran kozhukattai | Sesame Sweet stuffed Modak

Sesame seeds sweet stuffed kozhukattai is a healthy snack and it is made during the festival Ganesh Chaturthi. As my daughter loves kozhukattai I made it for an |evening snack. I couldn't make the shape of the modak correctly with my hands or with mold. So just two pieces look good and other all I made in a shape of somas.

  7. Place a ball of sweet stuffing inside and close it. Do the same for all the dough.
