Kambu Maavu Puttu Recipe - Pearl Millet Recipes

Kambu Maavu Puttu Recipe
I made kambu maavu using whole kambu(Pearl Millet) last week so wanted to try puttu first as this recipe was apt for the homemade flour.I just tried with a small amount of flour and regretted later as the flavour was soo good. I thought it would be tasting bland but it proved me wrong.Try it urself and see, best for breakfast too.

My Notes:

  • Mix well with your hands soi that there are no lumps.
  • The puttu will be seen dry even after steaming, after adding sugar ,coconut and ghee the puttu will become moist as seen.
  • I used a cloth on the steamer plate and spread the flour on it, it gives softer puttu.
  • I shaped the puttu using a small cup.
  • You can even add sugar or jaggery to the puttu.I used unrefined cane sugar.
  • The flour took a little longer to cook, it took 20mins for me.You can see the color and texture change after steaming.
