Easy Ellu Kozhukkatai - Nuvvula Kudumulu - Ellu Kadubu - Sesame Kozhukkatai

As Vinayakar chaturthi Falls on September 17th of this year, Planned to post Ellu Kozhukkatai. Here i have given Fool Proof method to make Kozhukkatai. Even the beginners can try this method. Outer cover is made with Rice flour, and filling is sesame with Jaggery filling. I am the big fan of this Ellu - kozhukkatai. Normally we make 2 types of  kozhukkatai. one is sesame filling, other  with Coconut+ Jaggery Filling or  Coconut & sugar filling. Already i have posted Modak(Coconut+jaggery) filling. Now we will see with sesame filling.


Sesame seeds - 1/4 cup.
Jaggery - 1/4 cup.

Dry Roast the sesame seeds, till it pops, then grind the sesame seeds into little coarse powder, then add jaggery. Just Pulse it twice or thrice till both sesame seeds & jaggery  combines. (Don't grind for a long run, else sesame oozes oil, and it becomes thick).

Outer Cover Preparation

Basic Kozhukkatai(kudumulu) cover  dough preparation

Idiyappam Flour/Rice flour  - 1 cup.
salt - as required.
water - 1 cup.
Cooking oil - 2 tsp.
This is the ingredients required for making dough.

  • Take Heavy bottomed vessel, add 1 cup of water, when it starts boiling,keep the stove in sim mode, and  add 1 cup of rice flour,1 tsp of oil and salt.

  • Then cover the lid. Insert  a long spoon or ladle,between lid & kadai as shown in the picture.Let it be in sim mode for 12  minutes.

  • After 12 minutes switch off the stove &  transfer it into a  plate and knead well, to make a dough.Just sprinkle few drops of  hot water to make soft  dough.Finally add 1 tsp of  oil  and knead well.Now basic kozhukkatai dough is ready(Make sure that dough should not have even small lumps in it).Now outer cover dough is ready.

kozhukkatai  preparation
  • Take the dough,apply some oil over hand,then  divide it into equal portions  and make it into small smooth lemon sized  balls.(make sure that balls should not have crack in it).
  • Make small cups as shown in the picture.

  • Then fill with sesame stuffing.
  • Bring the edges to gether and seal properly, then fold the edges as shown in the picture. Do it Gently.Now kozhukkatai  shaping  is ready.Repeat the same for remaining dough.
  • Then grease some oil, over idli plate and place kozhukkatai(kudumulu) over it. 
  • Steam cook it for 10 - 12  minutes. Now kozhukkatai  is ready.Allow it, to cool for 10 -12 minutes.Then serve.
  •  I always prefer idiyappam flour to make the kozhukkatai for best results.
  • Inserting the long spoon between lid & kadai, makes the dough to cook evenly.
  • Cooking  the dough in sim mode for few minutes, makes the dough softer & smoother.
  • It is important to note that while kneading, just sprinkle hot water  on  the flour.if you add more water to the dough, you won't get kozhukkatai(kudumulu).
  • kneading, is the important step, knead well to make smooth dough.
  • For 2 cups of rice flour let it be in sim mode for  15  min. When you increase the rice flour, timings for cooking the dough  should also be increased.
