there are several ways the puttu is served and consumed and it totally depends upon when it is served. the most common and popular way of consuming puttu recipe is serving it with kadala curry or black chickpeas curry. the combination of spicy curry with a coconut flavored puttu makes it an ideal combo for morning breakfast. but my favorite combination is spicy tomato chutney or onion chutney with puttu. but i even experiment it with other coconut based chutney like mint chutney and peanut chutney too. further the puttu is also served as a dessert with the combination of ripe banana. it is very popular combo and many prefer to eat puttu this way. i personally do not like it this way and prefer the spicy combo but it is completely up to individual preference.

furthermore some easy tips and suggestions while preparing the kerala puttu recipe. firstly, the recipe is specifically prepared with a device known as puttu maker which is a cylindrical tube attached to steamer. while i do not have alternative for tube, but you can replace the steamer with pressure cooker and fix the tube to whistle area. secondly, stuff the coconut powder tightly and firmly in the puttu tube so that it holds the shape while removing it. also make sure to begin the stuffing with coconut and end with coconut. lastly, the same recipe can also be prepared with ragi powder too which is basically a healthy version of this recipe. i will try to post it soon.
