This wholesome breakfast of puttu pazham on a lazy Saturday morning has some history to it.
This puttu maker was one more of my impulsive buys somewhere near wayanad on a long drive from Bangalore.
Made out of two simple coconut shells, this is the medium that steamed puttu for a long time until the stainless steel kozha was invented.
I had no intention of actually making puttu out of them. I only wanted it to be ornamental piece in my drawing room or my kitchen.
For months it has been lying around unused. Today I decided to use it for what it was originally crafted for. And wow , what was otherwise called kozha puttu did come out just as well if not in teh same shape it would have in a stainless steel funnel.
With a small hole on one corner of the coconut shell it fits wells into the steam rising out of the cooker. A 5 to 8 minutes of steaming and a quick, filling and healthy breakfast is ready .
