Semolina Vegetable Puttu

Semolina Vegetable Puttu

 Puttu is steamed rice cake and is Malayali's favorite breakfast. Puttu can be made with rice flour or wheat flour. This recipe uses semolina and is made even healthier by adding vegetables. I clicked this picture when my mother-in law made this for breakfast. Thanks Ammachi for sharing this recipe.

Semolina-2 cup
Grated vegetables- 1 cup
(a combination of shredded carrot, beetroot, chopped beans and green peas)
Coconut - 3/4 cup
Sugar-1 tsp
salt- 1/3 tsp
water- 1/2 cup

Chop vegetables and  keep aside. Take semolina in a bowl and add grated coconut.Rub in coconut using your palm.Mix sugar and salt in 1/2 cup of water and sprinkle it little by little into the semolina mixture. Mix to form a course damp mixture without lumps, resembling wet sand. To check  moisture  press handful of mixture in form of balls. It should hold together and also easily break off when crumbled. Mix in the vegetable and let it sit for five minutes.
Take the puttu maker and fill the bottom layer with one tsp grated coconut. Fill the puttu mixture finally top with grated coconut. Bring three cups of water to boil in the pressure cooker(or puttu maker) and place this carefully in the nozzle and allow it  to cook. Let it steam for around three to four minutes till you see steam escaping from all sides on the top.
