Kerala Kollah Puttu

Sharing is caring!

I have always been very fond of all kerala breakfast. They have so many healthy dishes for breakfast that helps us keep going. My all time favorite breakfast items have been Appam with Stew, Puttu with Sugar and Iddiappam. Wow all mouth watering dishes. Amma makes Puttu both in the regular form and in the vessel. Both ways I just love it.

Here you go for the recipe.

Preparation Time: 15 mins
Cooking Time : 10 mins
Cuisine : Kerala

Ingredients needed:
Rice – 500 kg
Salt to taste
Grated fresh coconut – 1 cup

Method to prepare:

Soak and clean Rice. Grind it to coarse powder in mixie. It should not be very coarse.

Add salt the rice flour and add required water slowly. The amount of water added can be tested by trying to make a ball of the flour and it should stay. Then you are sure it has enough water.

Stream this in cooker by placing the flour in muslin cloth.

Else we can use puttu maker. The puttu maker is filled with flour stuff in between with coconut.

This is the instrument used to make the puttu

It takes about 10 to 15 mins to be cooked.

Once done serve with Sugar and Coconut.
In kerala its typically served with kadala (Black channa dal) curry.

  1. Hi!
    should we dry the rice after soaking it? if so will 1/2 an hour be enough? grinding it in mixie is enough?sorry for bombarding you with questions.

  2. Thanks bee but don’t you get it at your place?

    yea Deepa ….but you can make these without the puttu maker also

    Thanks Laavanya…yes brown rice puttu also tastes so good..

    No problem glad to explain…yes we can dry the drained rice under fan but the rice will have to be little wet when you grind it. 10 mins for soaking, 5 mins for drying and 5 mins for grinding you have the flour ready

    Great Sharmi, glad to meet another puttu lover..

  3. I love Puttu like anything. I ate this when I had stayed at my Uncle’s place in Trichur, Kerala. My aunt made such wonderful dishes everyday for all 7 days of our stay there.

    I got a brown rice puttu powder recently but haven’t tried it, will try soon.
