How to make Puttu : Kerala Breakfast Recipe

Updated on October 10, 2013

Most favorite breakfast receipe of kerala

Puttu is one of the favorite recipes of Kerala. It is the favorite breakfast for us. Puttu is an easy made food and doesn’t require much work to be done. The usual combination is Puttu and Kadala (Brown Chickpea) Curry or Puttu, Payar (green gram curry) and pappadam (Pappad). If nothing is out there, we can have banana and sugar Or even black tea, to make it simpler

As usual, the main ingredient is rice itself. We prefer variety of rice products, for the whole day. Idle, Dosai, Puttu, Appam, Idiyappam etc. are some of the rice based food for breakfast. We can’t think about the mail meal of the day, without rice, it will be mostly plain rice and curry and at end of the day also we go with rice products.

  9. When the steam is of full force, place the puttu maker, filled with mixture, on top of the pressure cooker or puttu pot, so that the steam passes through the mixture, via the hole at the bottom of the puttu maker. Now wait for 5 minutes to get the puttu cooked.
  10. Once the puttu is cooked, take the pressure puttu maker, out from the steam and using a stick, push the filter under the mixture carefully to get the cooked puttu, out into a plate, without breaking.

      Yeah , there are varieties of puttu, including rice, wheat, ragi, tapioca etc . Usually puttu refers to rice puttu and in that too there are varieties like chemba (brown in color) rice puttu, plain rice puttu (white in color) etc. My favorite is chemba rice puttu and in this hub you could see that.

      Thanks Anamika , for stopping and great to know that you had tasted it.
