What you wear when you drop orpick up your kids from classes speaks of how much you care for public opinion and how unbelievably lazy you can be. The majority of people hover around the respectable average. But there are the ones who wear possibly the oldest usedT-shirt & mukkal (three-fourth) pant. Me. The ones who wear mix-and-mismatched churidhar sets. Me. There are a few like-minded lazy bums likeme out there. Our tribe put comfort over public opinion and laziness over propriety. I urge you to try it sometime to feel really and truly liberated.You’ll get inured to stares and judging looks. You’ll think less of others when you want to take the less trodden path.

He enjoys the puttu too but just not for breakfast. I can have this anytime of the day. The best part is it can be served at room temperature. You can prep a big batch of the red rice puttu flour up to “breaking up to the soft puttu texture” part and then refrigerate it in an airtight container. You can pull it out anytime, let stand for a bit to get to room temperature and just mix in sugar, coconut and ghee. I know that this recipe has quite a bit of sugar but remember this is for the entire recipe. In one portion, it is going to just a little bit more than what you putin your daily coffee or tea. Skip your coffee or tea the day you’re making this puttu if you’re very particular about sugar intake. This puttu is worth it.

Instructions
  1. Take the red rice puttu flour in a large bowl and add ½ tsp salt and mix well. Add warm water little at a time and mix with the flour until the flour is moist. It should be just moist enough and resemble wet sand. You should be able to grab a handful of the moist flour and press to make a ball but the ball that holds for a moment and then crumbles.
  2. Add water to an idli steamer and heat. Place a wet cloth on the idli plate and spread the puttu flour on the wet cloth. Place the idli plates with the moist puttu flour inside the idli steamer and steam for 8-10 minutes. Switch off. Remove the idli plates from the steamer and empty the steamed flour into a large bowl. Allow the puttu to cool down. The puttu will be lumped up at this stage. Don’t worry. Once the puttu has cooled down, break the puttu with your hands and transfer to a mixie. Pulse to break up the puttu into fine, pillowy soft texture.
  3. Transfer the puttu from the mixie jar to a large bowl. Add grated coconut, sugar and ghee. Mix well. Serve. Enjoy!
