Rava Puttu | Semolina Puttu | Sooji Puttu

Rava Puttu, a delicious breakfast/ evening time snack made with semolina and grated coconut.I never heard about this puttu until i had it in my friend's home.Two years back, i couldn't able to attend my close friend's marriage,so later we planned to visit her in her MIL's home at a village near by Mayiladuthurai. Her MIL prepared a delicious and wide spread of food for our dinner. In that menu, this rava puttu was there.
My friend knew that i like puttu a lot and i casually mentioned it many times during our hostel stay.So she insisted her MIL to prepare some puttu and her MIL was so sweet & kind enough to prepare this puttu for my sake.The puttu was so soft and she served it with some ghee and sugar. It was so flavorful and delicious in each mouthful.
Later i got the recipe from my friend and prepared it lot of times and also tried various combination like with kadala curry, appalam & banana.Though it tastes good with other combination, my all time favorite is simple ghee & sugar.

Rava/Sooji Puttu

Preparation Time : 10 mins | Cooking Time : 20 minsServes :
Recipe Category: Breakfast | Recipe Cuisine: Indian
Ingredients
Semolina/Sooji/Rava - 1 cup
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Water - as need
Grated Coconut - 1/3 cup

Procedure
Heat a pan, add rava and dry roast it till the nice aroma comes from it , by the time it slightly changes its color too. Remove from the heat and allow to cool completely.Add salt into the rava & mix it well. Then add little by little water into rava and mix it with your hands until the rava is moist well.Take a handful of rava and press it with your fist, it should hold the shape,then press it with your thumb,it should crumble, that's the correct stage of rava.Take the puttu maker and add the grated coconut and then add rava, repeat the same and finish off with coconut.Steam it in the pressure cooker or puttu steamer for 12-15 mins.
That's it, Yummy Rava Puttu is ready.
Notes:
  • For me, it takes around 8 mins to dry roast the rava in medium flame.
  • The flavor of the puttu comes from the dry roasting of rava,so roast till the nice aroma comes from it.
  • This puttu takes little longer time to cook than the rice flour puttu.
Sprinkle some ghee & sugar,it's time to dig in
