 I have posted 6 kinds of kozhukkattais and also how to make the kozhukkattai maavu/dough. All those informations available here

I have also made maavu with Anil Kozhukkattai flour (but home made dough by grinding is the best) That method is also there in one of the kozhukkattais.

Now I am going to tell you about a kozhukkattai, which is not frequently made in all homes. It is Sesame seeds and Jaggery kozhukkattai. We can use white sesame seeds, but being healthier, I have used black sesame seeds.

and this unique way of closing like butterflies was taught to me by my mother-in-law, so that we can differentiate the kozhukkattais easily.

Black sesame seeds - 1/8 cup
Jaggery - 1/8 cup
Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp

Kozhukkattai dough , as required. 

Recipe cuisine: South Indian; Category: Festival delicacy
Prep time: 15 mts; Cooking time: 12-14 minute for each batch of kozhukkattai

This mount of sesame powder yields 12 kozhukkattais
(This powder can be stored in fridge for more than a month and used whenever needed)

Black sesame seeds taken in a pan, and roasted in slow flames

After letting it cool down, powder in a blender

then add jaggery and cardamom powder

Powder everything together and take out in a box

Kozhukkattai choppus made

Sesame powder filled

And closed like butterflies!!!
