Gothambu Puttu (steamed Wheat Cake)
I love puttu though mostly I am told that it is too dry that it would need a stick to shove down one's throat. I am always fascinated with the cylindrical shape of the puttu maker. I have not seen any kitchen utensil in this dimension. Now a days with diabetes rocking our health cards we Keralites have substituted rice flour with wheat,oats,semolina and ragi. I guess we find this easier than making dosas and rotis with other flours. So here's my favourite- the wheat puttu. I find it an easy alternative to rotis on days I am lazy to knead or roll rotis. If you do not have a puttu maker try getting the coconut shell ones it is smaller and can be steamed on top of a pressure cooker. Even the cylindrical puttu makers have versions that can be steamed on top of pressure cookers so you don't need to store the puttu pot exclusively.
