Kerala Style Puttu

Puttu is another traditional breakfast dish from Kerala and is typically prepared with rice flour and coconut. Puttu is usually served with kadala curry or banana and and sugar.


Tools

  • Puttu maker

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Wheat Puttupodi (i used Elite brand flour and it is available at Indian grocery stores)

  • Grated coconut - as needed

  • 1 cups water approximately

  • Salt needed

Directions


  1. Take 2 cups of puttu flour in a bowl. Add a little salt.

  2. Add water little at the time and mix well with your finger tips. When you take a handful of flour and press it between your fist, it should hold its shape, when you press it again a little harder, it should crumble. That is the right consistency.

  3. The flour should be crumbly and moist. There should be no lumps. You can blend it in a mixer for 2-3 seconds using the whipper blade. Keep it aside for 15 minutes.

  4. Layer the puttu kutty (cylindrical tube) first with a little grated coconut, then add 2 fistful of puttu flour.Then again add grated coconut followed by puttu flour.Repeat the same process until the mould/puttu kutty is full ending it with grated coconut

  5. Layer the puttu kutty (cylindrical tube) first with a little grated coconut, then add 2 fistful of puttu flour.Then again add grated coconut followed by puttu flour.Repeat the same process until the mould/puttu kutty is full ending it with grated coconut

  6. When you get a nice flavor of steamed puttu, switch off, remove the cylindrical tube/puttu kutty from the pot, open it and gently push the puttu using a wooden ladle.

  7. Serve hot with kadala curry or payaru and pappadam or small yellow banana and sugar.

You can make puttu without puttu maker using a steamer or idly pan. Take an idly mould, start with a layer of grated coconut, the add puttu mixture. Layer it again with coconut and puttu flour. See to it that the final layer is grated coconut. Steam for 6-10 minutes or until the puttu is done
