Puttu, Payar and Pappadam Recipe / Puttu Recipe / Rice Puttu Recipe

This is one of the best combination to eat puttu,if you have not tried this yet please give it a try..Puttu is one of the famous keralan dish..They usually have puttu with fish curry or kadala curry..I have posted ragi puttu, wheat puttu, tapioca puttu..

I used a typical puttu kolal for this,but if you don’t have that you could use a small bowl and put the coconut and flour mixture in layers and steam it,it will still come out great..But the only thing is you wont get the traditional shape for it.. .I hope you all will give this a try and let me know what you think..
