kuzha puttu






this is a kerala tiffin type..also very famous in southern parts of tamil nadu..to make this you need a puttu maker..it can also be steamed in idly cooker..


i usually do this with store bought puttu podi. this is like idiyappam pindi/mavu. this can also be done in ragi and wheat..intresting right..



another intresting factor is you can steam this within minutes..like it would take less than 5 mins.

Ingredients:





1.puttu podi-2cups


2.salt a pinch


3.water


4.grated coconut-1/2 cup





Method:


have flour in a basin and add pinch salt to it. now mix the flour by sprinkling water..keep a note that the flour should be mixed that it should look like grated coconut...very soft. so just keep on sprinkling water and mix.. then on puttu maker first add coconut grated a spoon full. and a fistfull of mixed flour.like one upon the other.till the puttu maker pipe/kuzha gets filled. the bottom of the puttu maker should be filled with water and heated. not place the kuzha upon it. when the steam comes from it..it is ready. now you remove the pipe/kuzha alone and with a spoon press the puttu on the bottom..it will come without any breaks..



you can eat it with sugar,raosted cashews and dry grapes.
