A wholesome nutritional dish, which also tastes really good! Puttu is traditionally an iconic breakfast of Kerala. Puttu is basically a steamed cake and can be prepared with any flour like wheat, rice, ragi etc. Generally, it is prepared with steamed cylinders of ground rice layered with coconut, and a sweet or savoury filling. However, if oats are used in the preparation, the nutritional blast is tremendous. It then transforms into a gluten-free weight loss recipe as well as a diabetic recipe.
Puttu with banana or with kadala curry is also widely popular as a healthy combo for breakfast. Traditionally, it is prepared with a Puttu Maker. However, if you don’t have a Puttu Maker, you can also manage quite well with a steamer.
Below, we present the recipe for this healthier version of the beloved puttu.
