Kozhukattai recipes for festivals

In this post, I have shared the list of different types of kozhukattai recipes / kozhukattai varieties that can be made for Ganesh chaturthi / Vinayagar chaturthi and other festivals like Varalakshmi vratham, during Tamil month Aadi, Karthigai deepam and other occasions at home. For Ganesh chaturthi, people make varieties of kolukattai / mothagam / modak across South India and North India as Lord Ganesh loves modak and he is fondly called as Modakpriya /Mothagapriyan.

In Tamil nadu, it is called as kozhukattai. we make mothagam @ kolukattai as the major naivedyam recipe for Vinayagar chaturthi. Other than kozhukattai we make sweet appam, sundal, payasam and ladoo too. Kozhukattai varieties like sweet poornam kozhukattai, uppu kozhukattai / ulundu kolukattai and ellu kozhukattai is offered for Ganesh chaturthi. Some people also make paal kolukattai and thengai poorana kozhukattai instead of kadalai paruppu pooranam kozhukattai. Apart from the traditional kozhukattai recipes, beginners can easily try ammini kozhukattai in sweet and spicy versions.

In North India, Ukadiche modak and fried modak are very popular. Apart from this Khoya modak, dry fruits and nuts, khajoor modak can also be prepared. In this post, I have shared all the traditional kolukattai recipes and few beginner friendly kozhukattai recipes with no cook stuffing.  I have also shared some links on different methods of making kozhukattai / modak dough along with some useful video links. Hope you find this collection helpful for making kozhukattai varieties for this Ganesh chaturthi.I will try to add more kozhukattai varieties like peanut kozhukattai, vegetable kozhukattai, ilai kolukattai in future and update this list. Ok, lets move on to the list of kozhukattai recipes.
