Puttu is a traditional and healthy steamed breakfast recipe in Kerala. It is prepared with rice flour, red rice flour, wheat flour and ragi. Puttu with semolina is not a usual recipe but tastes great as like all other puttu recipes. It is bit sticky and can be prepared easily in idli cooker, steamer or puttu maker.
This rava puttu can be served with milk and banana, kadala curry or egg kurma. I always love to eat sweet version of puttu with banana and coconut milk.
