Puttu is a Kerala delicacy, very healthy since not a drop of oil is used to make this. Can be given to patients also.
I prefer this small kind of puttu maker shown in one of the pictures below, since they are perfect for individual servings.
Though Puttu can be served with Khorma or Veg stew, always Puttu & Kadala curry is the inseparable combo.
I made it with store bought Double Horse puttu powder and it is so easy.

Puttu powder - 1 cup
Water - 1 cup
Salt to taste
Coconut gratings - as needed

Recipe cuisine: South Indian; Category: Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
Soaking time: 20 - 25 mts; Cooking time: 5-7 mts for each Puttu

Yields 6 servings

This is the small and cute Puttu maker I used

Opened and shown, at the bottom, you can see a small perforated plate, which should not be lost. Must be carefully preserved, because that helps to generate even steam inside the puttu maker

1 cup puttu flour measured and taken in a vessel, salt to taste added

1 cup water poured

Mixed well and let aside for 20-25 minutes

Take a fork and fluff it up , and it becomes like this after 25 minutes

Puttu maker just made wet, 1 spoon of grated coconut put at the bottom

Then puttu flour strewn on top. It should not be tightly packed.

Topped with some more coconut. If we want, in the middle also we can put a layer of coconut. Option is ours.

Puttu maker closed

Water set to boil inside a cooker

Cooker lid closed, and when steam starts coming out, puttu maker placed on top of the nozzle. There is a small tube like part there at the bottom

Steamed on slow fire for 5-7 minutes...see Baba is supervising from there!!!

Inverted on a plate, even the small plate will come off, which we have to gently remove and place inside the puttu maker.

Served with the very tasty, delicate Kadala curry

The hot puttu served with Kadala curry and some Bajra curd semiya for lunch
