Chiratta Puttum Payarum

Chiratta Puttum Payarum

In olden days puttu was made in cut pieces of bamboo (puttukutty) or in coconut shell ( In Kerala it is known as Chiratta puttu ). The eye on the coconut shell will provide an opening for the steam to cook the puttu. The other day I came across a puttu mould in the shape of coconut shell. It can be placed on top of pressure cooker ( where the weight is placed ) and steam for 7 minutes on a medium heat ( reduce the heat to medium after releasing full steam and steam for 5 minutes ).  Chiratta puttu mould available at Santhosh Super Store & Chakson Show room, Anna Nagar, Chennai and other steel utensil stores.
