Healthy Oats Puttu / Puttu made with rolled oats



Healthy Oats Puttu  / Puttu made with rolled oats

We  got this great idea from our friends, it turned out really great. So next time replace rice
 flour with oats  and enjoy this healthy and delicious puttu for breakfast or dinner. It tasted
 more like wheat puttu.                        

Ingredients
  • Old fashioned Oats - 2 cups
  • Shredded Coconut - 1/4 Cup
  • Water and Salt - as required.
Preparation method

       Puttu a is a traditional break fast item in South India and is usually prepared with rice flour. It is prepared in a steaming equipment called puttu maker. Here we tried to replace rice with oats and it turned out awesome.        Give a quick spin to the oats in food processor or blender. Mix 1 tsp of salt in about 1 cup of water.Add salt water to the oats 1 tbsp at a time and then mixing it together, by breakdown all the lumps. Add enough water to wet all the oats, but it still remains in powder form. This is little bit  more difficult than with rice flour as oats sticks together easily.  In the puttu maker start with a thin layer of coconut and then add about 1/2 cup of the wet oats mixture. Alternate with coconut and oats layers. Steam it similar to rice puttu for about 5 minutes and puttu is ready.

What a grt idea..!!This way we can have oats without sugar..we usually make porridge and add sugar..which makes healthy oats high in calories..:)This is perfect way to have oats .

I've never heard of Puttu, but then my dad is from Northern India so he's probably never had this. It looks delicious! Anything with coconut is going to be super tasty. :-)
