Puttu is a cylindrical rice cake made from coarsely ground rice flour cooked in very little water. This powder is then filled in the puttu patram, meaning vessel to cook puttu. The patram is layered with freshly shredded coconut. It is then steamed for some time.
Kadala Curry is made from black channa (black chickpea/Bengal gram). This gravy is thin and watery, but the whole spices, powdered spices, coconut paste make it flavoursome.
Puttu and Kadala Curry make for an incredibly tasty and filling combination.
