sweet corn puttu

Here is the recipe for making sweet corn Puttu. I prefer to have this puttu with kadala  Curry or any other gravy.
  1. Sweetcorn  powder– 2 cups
  2. Salt – to taste
  3. Warm Water – 1 cup (for mixing)
  4. Coconut scrapes – 1 cup
  5. Sugar – 1 tsp
Preparation Method
  1. Mix grated coconut with sugar and keep aside.
  2. Add salt to the cornpowder Sprinkle little water and start mixing it using your hand.
  3. Keep on adding warm water little by little and mixing till the sweet corn powder becomes wet fully and resembles bread crumbs. I used around 1 cup of water for 2 cups of sweet corn powder
  4. Add 2 tbsps of coconut sugar mix to the bottom of a Puttu Kuti (mould for making Puttu). Then add sweet corn mixture till the middle of the Puttu Kutti, followed by coconut. Continue adding sweet corn and finally some coconut on the top.
  5. Take water in a Puttu Kudam (Vessel for making Puttu) and allow it to boil. Place the Puttu Kuti on top of the Puttu Kudam and allow it to steam.
  6. Cook for 7-8 minutes after steam starts coming out of the Puttu Kutti.
