Thinai-puttu

Puttu is traditional breakfast recipe in TamilNadu and Kerala. Coconut puttu, Rice puttu, Kuzha puttu, Dal puttu are all varieties of puttu. Steamed food is very healthy and easy to make the recipe.

Puttu is my all-time favourite and still my grandma used to bring puttu every month to us. Flavour with coconut and sugar with dash of ghee or sesame oil will be awesome in taste. I already shared Arisi puttu and Paruppu puttu and now I tried it with my favourite millet thinai flour. It came out really well in texture and taste, its so soft while having hot.
