Puttu with kadalai 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.

Recipe Notes

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.

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.
