I am wishing all the Indians,a very happy republic day 2012!...I am glad to post the tri flavored puttu and Karamani curry...Both are my family's fav dish....
For Yellow Color,I used Corn Puttu Podi
For Green,Grained a cup of Mint and Green Chillies..
Its a must-try variation of puttu...
The green puttu tasted the best out of the rest..
Mix a cup of puttu maavu with half cup of water and Salt..
Set aside for 15 minutes
Add the mint water to the puttu maavu with salt...Set aside
Layer the maavu and grated coconut in Puttu steamer...and Steam it for 10-15 minutes...
When steam starts to escape,u can remove it from flame
Pull the puttu out of steamer
And Serve with Yummy Karamani Curry
(The recipe is given below)
Sambar powder-3/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Curry leaves-a few
Soak the Karamani peas in hot water for 20 minutes
Pressure cook or Cook them for 7-10 minutes until it turns soft
Saute the onion and tomato with Salt
if using the shallots,dont remove the skin,u can use as it is
Add the cooked karamani and a cup of water
Add the sambar powder and bring to a boil
Sprinkle some curry leaves
Serve with puttu
