Recently one of my srilankan friend bought puttu steamer for me. This is my first experience of making puttu, (yes I never made puttu before). And I was afraid how it will turn out and hesitating to make. Since my mom doesn’t make puttu in home even I never knew how the steamer looks like. I came across this sago (javarisi) puttu when I was goggling sometime back in one of my favorite Tamil website. Here is the recipe how I made them.
Raw rice – 1cup
Sago (javarisi) – 1cup
Greated Coconut – 1cup
Salt to taste
Soak sago into the boiling water for 1 hour or till became transparent. Mean time soak the raw rice for 2 hours, drain water and let them dry in cloth.
Now grind the rice to powder with salt in blender.Mix the rice flour with sago and add water . You should be careful while mixing the water to the mixture. It should not change to dough. It should be in a powdered form wet enough for steaming.
I don’t know this puttu is health enough to send WBB-healthy breakfast by suganya,,but I can remember my mom’s words”anyfood cooked by steam is healthier than cooked using oil”.So i am sending he he:)))
