Ellu Saadham / Ellodharai

Ellu Saadham / Ellodharai is given as Prasadham in many Venkatachalapathy temples during Purattasi month. I learnt this recipe from my amma. As we all know, sesame is rich in iron. including it in any form is good for health. We also make ellu chikki, ellu podi at home, but making of ellu urundai is not allowed since it is made only on Dhevasam day.  This rice is so easy to make and if you are lazy, then this is a ready to make recipe which is also tasty. Also using Sesame on Saturday is auspicious. We can make Ellu saadham / Ellodharai and offer it as a neivedhyam to God.
