Puttu Recipe/ How to make Kerala Puttu
Puttu and Kadala curry is one of my favourite breakfast. Puttu with payaru (boiled green gram), Pazham (banana) and pappadam (papad) is also an ultimate combination. In olden days grandmas use to clean and dry the raw rice and grind it to a fine powder to make puttu flour. And the Puttu made out of that flour smells heavenly. But these days we get readymade Puttu flour in all the stores which tastes good too. Learn how to make Puttu with stepwise pics.
- 1/2 kg Puttu flour
- 1 cup Grated coconut
Heat a kadai and roast Puttu flour till nice aroma comes.
Switch off the flame. Add salt and mix well. Sprinkle water and start mixing with the flour. Do not pour more water, sprinkle water gradually and mix it so that the water is evenly mixed with the flour. Let it rest for 10 mins so that the moisture is completely absorbed.
Gently break the lumps later on. Place the perforated disc inside the Puttu kudam and start filling it with coconut and the mixed flour(first coconut then flour then coconut and repeat it again.) Do not press the flour or coconut. Fill it loosely so that it will be easy for the steam to pass. It will not get cooked when it is tightly packed.
Boil water in a pressure cooker and place the Puttu kudam on the lid. Cook till you see steam on the vents of the lid.
