Vinayagar chaturthi is fast approaching.  All of you can make rice flour for making mothagam. Last year I posted Pillaiyarpatti Mothagam. This year I tried ellu Kozhukattai. It is also very tasty to eat. It is healthy too. It is a slight variation from coconut mothagam. If you want you can add coconut or else you can make it only with ellu. Ellu is known as sesame in English. Let us see how to make ellu Kozhukattai
