One of my collegue used to bring wheat flour puttu, tapioca puttu to office. I absolutely love it. In our house we only make traditional rice flour puttu and serve it with payaru and papadam. But the puttu which I tasted from my friends house was so good. It was like love at first sight. I wanted to try them so badly from that day. Then finally the day arrived and yesterday I went to my mom's place and we made the wheat flour puttu. Everyone loved it a lot and this one tasted more good than the regular one. We had it with banana and sugar and it was perfect.
Now I am planning to make this more often. I will soon make the tapioca puttu too.
Serves - 1 to 2
Wheat Flour / Atta - 2 cups
Coconut - 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Sugar - 2 tblspn
Water as needed
Take wheat flour in a large mixing bowl. Add in salt, sugar and mix well.
Now add in water slowly and mix well with your hands. This will form into crumbles. The crumbles should not be dry, it should form into a tight ball when you hold it and it should crumble when you drop it.
Now take your puttu making gadget.
Fill water in the bottom pot of the puttu gadget and heat it up.
Drop the holed disc inside the funnel. Now start layering the funnel.
First add some coconut in the bottom, followed by the puttu mixture, then the coconut and the puttu mixture. The top and bottom of the funnel should have coconut.
Place the funnel over the pot. Cook this for 4-5 mins till the puttu is cooked.
Now the back of a spatula, push the disc so the puttu releases from the funnel.
Serve this puttu hot with banana and sugar.
For making Puttu without Puttu funnel:
If you don't have puttu funnel to make this.Follow the step till the puttu making mixture and Mix coconut into the puttu mixture. Take a clean cloth and pour the puttu mixture in it and cover it. Place this inside a steamer and steam it. The puttu wont be in traditional shape but it still taste the same.
