Mango Puttu

Mango Puttu - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Puttu is very famous and traditional healthy breakfast dish of Kerala, made from rice flour and grated coconut. It is served with spicy chickpea curry or sugar and bananas.
As the summer is going on these days, I have tried to make puttu with delicious Mangoes and Coconut scrapings in a coconut shell. Traditionally, Puttu was steamed in coconut shells but now stainless steel puttu steamers are readily available in the shops.

  • The flour should become wet and smooth like sand. When you roll the mixture into a ball, it should be able to hold shape and crumble easily when you crush it. Keep this aside for 5 minutes.
