Pazham Puttu (Banana Puttu)

>> August 24, 2011

This is a recipe which i have learnt to prepare from my mother's aunt. As mentioned in my previous post, the banana used in this recipe is ethapazham which is a very nutritious fruit. The idea of mixing the puttu mix with banana is just to give a twist to the usual puttu with a sweet taste. The pazham puttu is usually prepared with rice flour and banana. I have prepared a wheat puttu with the fruit. Can be had as such or can be had with some milk and sugar. Try it....

the recipe
wheat flour - 1 cup
coconut, grated - 3/4 of a coconut or 1 (as much as you can grate)
salt - 1/2 to 3/4 tsp (or according to your taste)
water - 1/4 cup or less
            (or as required - the quantity of water is based on the texture of the wheat flour being used)
banana - 2 

if you do not have a puttu mould, just place the mix in a steamer and steam it.

the method

Mix the salt with the water and keep it aside.

Cut the banana into tiny cubes.

Place the wheat flour in a wide mixing bowl. Sprinkle the salted water (1 tbsp at a time) and mix with your finger as if to form crumbs. Repeat the process till the flour is just moist and crumby. Add the grated coconut gently run your fingers through the mix. Stir in the chopped banana and gently mix it. Take care that the wheat mix does not form lumps.

Boil water in a puttu maker or a steamer and fill the mould with the puttu mix. Cook for 2 minutes after the steam comes out of the lid.

Serve warm or hot with or without milk & sugar.
