In my childhood every year my mom used to make pillayarpatti mothagam and channa sundal for vinayakar chaturthi.  At that time I loved to eat coconut poorana kozhukattai because everyone in Chennai will make coconut poorna kozhukattai.
In pillayarpatti they make this mothagam as prasadham.  Last year I made this mothagam. I kept this recipe safely in my drive for about an year. Vinayagar chaturthi is fast approaching. So this is the right time to post this mothagam recipe.
