Puttu with kadalai curry

puttu with kadali curry I saw this popular Kerala breakfast puttu and kadala curry/saalan in many blogs. I was eager to make this when I bought a packet of puttu flour in the supermarket . After almost a month or two , I finally made it today for sunday brunch. We all loved it. I did not have a puttu maker(the mould for making puttu). So initially I followed the instructions in the puttu packet by keeping the processed puttu flour in a plate and then steaming it in bowl containing boiling water. Then steaming it in a idli cooker seemed a good idea and it came really good. But anyway as I loved puttu , I am planning to buy the mould when I visit India next time.

Puttu flour/rice flour- 250g
Water- 105ml
Salt- to taste(add if not already added)
Grated coconut
Sprinkle water little at a time to the puttu flour. Mix till it looks like crumbs. Place this in the mould or idli stand and steam for 10 minutes. Add grated coconut on the top.

Kadalai curry-
Black chick peas-1 cup
Onion- 1(chopped)
Tomato- 1 chopped
Ginger garlic paste- 1tsp
Green chillies-2
Dried red chillies- 3
Coriander seeds- 1tsp
Coconut grated- 1tbsp
Cumin seed powder- 1tsp
garam masala- 1tsp
Turmeric powder- 1tsp
Salt- 2tsp/to taste
Oil- 1tsp+1tsp
Soak the peas overnight. Next day, pressure cook them till it turns soft.
Heat oil in a pan. Add dried red chillies ,grated coconut and coriander seeds. Saute for sometime. Grind it well. Add onions,tomatoes, ginger, garlic and green chillies. Grind it to a smooth paste. Heat oil in a pan. Add the ground paste. Then add turmeric powder, cumin seed powder,garam masala and salt. Mix well. Add the cooked peas. Cook for around 15 minutes adding a little water. Serve the puttu hot with the curry.

My sister made puttu with readymade puttu flour and steamed it in a puttu mould. She send some photos for Creative saga. You can see the pictures of the mould steamed by fixing it on a pressure cooker and also the picture of the delicious puttu.
puttu maker I am sending my puttu to lubna(kitchen flavours) who is hosting Fic - white in her blog Yummy food. The event was started by sunshine mom of tongue ticklers.

Hi Sowmi, The puttu looks lovely.Iam thinking of buying a puttu mould as well. You can see my attempt at making puttu in my blog. We all loved it at home, since its steam cooked and healthy.We had it with orange sugar, freshly grated coconut and coconut milk, Will try the kadalai curry combination the next time I make puttu.
