Rice Puttu Upma

Recently I had some left out puttu and  then no one wanted to eat it again for dinner, so in the evening during dinner I restyled the puttu and served. Every one wiped of the plate. Sometimes these kind of twists helps in not wasting food and clearing off the left overs.

BTW its a very cloudy day here and I see the roads are has drizzled. Loving it. Let me capture some pics for u guys. 
I am not a late sleeper awake with full energy and in a really happy mood to bake something good. Hmmm what to do...... what to do.....  

I have a small garden in my balcony  where I have coriander, curry, mint leaves, green chillies, lemon and papaya growing. I am so happy see  what has come up......................bindi another plant blooming with flowers thats for sure  some kind of vegetable as I have the crazy habit of  planting all the seeds of the vegetable that I  use in my kitchen. 

You guys have a happy weekend and here I go with the recipe.

Ingredients :

First you make puttu, please see recipe here

Onion – 1 big finely chopped
Oil – 2 tbsp
Green chilli – 3 -4 nos chopped
Curry leaves – 2 sprigs
Mustard – ¼ tsp
Urud daal – ¼ tsp
Channa daal – 1 tsp
Peanuts  – 1 tbsp (Optional)
Salt – see and add as we usually add in puttu also
Water – 1 or 2 tbsp – if needed
Fresh coconut for garnish


Crumble the puttu and keep aside.

Add oil in a pan, throw in the mustard, urud, channa daals and peanuts, when they are golden brown, add onion, greenchilli chopped and sauté till translucent

Now add the crumbled puttu into this and mix well, check the salt.  At this sprinkle little water and cover the lid so that  the puttu and all the ingredients gets well incorporated.
Garnish with coconut and its ready to serve.

This goes well with a cup of hot tea J

  9. There are times when the makeovers are better than the original! And that is because these steamed products get some oil and fat and it improves the taste. But the steamed one of course is healthier
