Red Rice Puttu and Cherupayaru Curry

This is a Popular Breakfast in Kerala.Normally it is done with white rice.I tried it out with red rice flour and it turned out well.So this Puttu is very healthy especially for weight waters and diabetic people
It is served with Kadala Curry or Cherupayaru Curry (Green Moong Dhal Curry) and Banana
Check out the link for Cherupayaru Curry

  • Red Rice Flour - 1 cup
  • Water - little less than 1/2 cup
  • Salt - 1 teaspoon
  • Puttu Kutty or Puttu Maker

Step 1 - Preparation of Puttu Flour
  • Take red rice flour in a wide bowl.Put salt
  • Sprinkle water little by little and mix well to get a crumbled dough
  • When you press the dough in between the fist it should hold its shape
  • At the same time you should be able to crumble it
Step 2 - Puttu
  • Puttu Kutty / Maker consists of two parts - bottom pot for boiling water which would release steam and the upper cylindrical tube in which the dough is filled
  • Place the flat disc onto the bottom off the cylindrical tube
  • Grease it with little coconut oil
  • Fill the cylindrical tube with the puttu maavu / dough prepared and close it with the lid given
  • Boil water in the bottom pot and place the cylindrical tube over it
  • Cook on medium flame for about 6 minutes.Steam will start coming then
Step 3 - Removing the Puttu
  • Push the bottom disc using a spoon 
  • Puttu will come off nicely

Serve it hot along with grated coconut, banana and Cheupayaru Curry
