So We had this Diwali Party for the weekend.I decided to make some kerala recipe .So i thought a basix puttu recipe would be gud.But inorder to make it a special for Diwali Celebration i want to add some style to it,So After thinking for a long time evn days i decided to make this rainbow puttu,color not yet decided.So When i was looking to my cupboard for adding colors ,i felt adding a indian theme would make it perfect (with the help of my hubby.ofcourse).So i decided to make our proud national Flag colors to it.The resulting outcome is what you are seeing here.
If you are planning some thing like me ,this will be a good option,
So Why Don't we go to the recipe now?
Rice flour - 4.5 cups
Coconut Shredded - 2 cups
Jaggery Melted - 1 cup
Salt - 1 tsp
Green Color - a pinch
Yellow Color - a pinch or two
Red Color - a pinch
ALmond Flavour - 1/4 tsp
Orange Flavour - 1/4 tsp
Steamer and Spring Foam to make Puttu.
1.If you have hard jaggery melt it in a pan without adding water until its smooth,keep it in flame at warm temperature or it will solidify again.
Add water by tablespoon at a time,till you are able to hold the flour together when you press it with hand but it should easily breakable.It will take almost 2 to 3 tbsp water only,so be careful when you add water,dont over add it.Check photo for clarrifications.
3.Fill the bottom vessel of the steamer with water around 8 cups and let it come to boil.
In the top vessel ,place a muslin cloth and then place the springform with out the bottom plate (use only the sides of springform),Add the green color flour mixture to it and layer on top with a single layer of coconut shreaded.
