Chakka / Jack fruit puttu


Chakka puttu is a favorite of puttu made with jack fruit. Puttu is a common breakfast among the people of Kerala . The most favorite combo for puttu is Kadal curry. It is a healthy breakfast which is fat free and is made with steamed rice flour.  This puttu is made by adding chopped jack fruit. It is light sweet with great aroma and taste.

Another variant of puttu is the chiratta puttu where steaming is done on a coconut shell.What I have used is a steel replica of similar shape. This has a small hole which is attached to the pressure cooker.When cooked it is put upside on a plate . You can also use a fresh  coconut shell to make puttu by making hole in the bottom.
Ingredients
Rice flour- 1 1/2 cup
Jack fruit- 10 -12 pieces
Coconut - 1/2 cup
Sugar- 2 tsp
salt- 1/3 tsp
water

Chop the jack fruit pieces  and keep aside. Take rice flour in a bowl and rub in coconut using your palm.Mix sugar and salt in 1/3 cup of water and sprinkle it little by little into the flour and blend in. The mixture should not form a dough but a course damp mixture without lumps. To make the moisture spread evenly press handful of mixture in form of balls. It should hold together and also easily break off when crumbled.
Take the puttu maker and fill the bottom layer with jack fruit pieces and  fill in with the moist flour and finally top with another layer of jack fruit pieces. Bring two cups of water to boil in the pressure cooker and place this carefully in the nozzle and allow it  to cook. Let it steam for around three to four minutes till you see steam escaping from all sides on the top.Serve hot

 Try this...

Hope you will all enjoy....
