Sago Puttu(Javarisi Puttu)

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.



INGREDIENTS:

Raw rice – 1cup
Sago (javarisi) – 1cup
Greated Coconut – 1cup
Salt to taste
Sugar

METHOD:

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.

Layer 1tsp of coconut first, then 3 tsp of rice mixture, then again 1 tsp of coconut, repeat rice mixture, last layer finish off with coconut till you reach the top of the cylindrical shape. Close the lid and fill water in the lower bowl and allow it to boil well.(u can separate the cylindrical shape from the bowl)


When water starts boil fix the puttu steamer(cylinderical part) on the nozzle of the steam vent.Cook for 10mins after steam comes out in the holes.Now slowly invert the steamer over a plate and push carefully from one edge.

Serve with sugar,ripe banana or Channa.

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:)))

But i am sure kids will like this.....so I am also sending this to kids food event by vanamala .

I think your first attempt itself is a perfect one! Looks perfect and adding saco in puttu is new and think it makes the puttu more softer!
