Sesame seeds poorana kozhukattai(Yellu poorana kozhukattai) is a delicious recipe and specially made on the auspicious day of Vinayaka Chaturti(Ganesh Chaturti). This is another traditional dish we do for neivedhyam for Lord Ganesha along with Thengai Purna kozhukattai and Ulundhu kozhukattai. This is so simple to make and tastes yummy. Especially black Sesame Seedsare particularly rich in iron, so they’re highly recommended for those with anemia and weakness. So even if you are not doing this dish for neivedhyam, we can make this filling alone and have it if we have anemia or weakness. Black sesame seeds combined with jaggery is a tasty and iron rich filling.Lets see how to make kozhukattai with this healthy filling.
