Poorana Kozhukattai is a traditional South Indian sweet dish made during festivals like Ganesh Chaturthi. It is a steamed dumpling made with rice flour and filled with a sweet coconut and jaggery mixture. Poorana Kozhukattai is usually offered as prasadam (offering) to Lord Ganesha during the festival and is enjoyed as a delicious sweet treat.
For Poorana Kozhukattai/Modak, we need to prepare the outer shell and the stuffing (Pooranam) separately. The outer shell is made with Rice Dough and can be prepared in different ways. I have shared two methods for making outer shell and three different filings (pooranam).
