Mothagam are delicious, sweet dumplings filled with a mixture of green gram, spices, coconut and jaggery. When I went to a Sri Lankan shop in Sydney and told the Tamil owner I was making mothagam, he chuckled in disbelief. But when I returned and told him they were a success, he announced to all his customers that I could make mothagam and gave me a generous discount.
