Ellu Kozhukattai has sweet filling prepared with roasted sesame,cardamom powder and jaggery. Every year we make this kozhukattai for ganesh chaturthi. We also make ellu urundai with the same stuffing for both ganesh chaturti and krishna jeyanthi. My aunty and mom prepared rice flour homemade which make our kozhukatti so soft and melting. Since i had no time to make that process i used store bought rice flour. Next ill try to update my MIL style of making kozhukattai. Here is the instant rice flour recipe method
