Puttu is a common breakfast in our food menu.This puttu is made with Rava / Semolina / Sooji. Amma used to make Rice flour puttu,Ragi puttu often.But Rava puttu is made Occasionally.It is so easy to make and it tastes great with sugar and coconut milk.You can also have it with Bananas or kadala curry.I love Rava puttu more than other puttu.
