Chembha kuzha puttu with kadala curry

Soon after our marriage, my hubby was asking me to try puttu, as it was his favourite. But as far i know, preparing puttu was a lengthy process of washing the rice, draining them and powdering them and steaming. when i told all this process to my hubby, he was the one gave an intro about puttu maker and puttu podi, soon i got convinced and gave it a try. It still remains to be our favourite brunch on week-end's.

If you don't have a puttu maker, You could follow shriya's Recipe. If you look at her puttu's picture, you cant control yourself on trying it soon.

If you have soaked Kadala/brown chick pea overnight, this delicious break-fast can be done in just 10 minutes. This puttu's best pair is kadala curry. i also prefer to eat it along with sugar. Whenever we eat this puttu, we got to have a banana and a glass of milk, for easy disgestion.
