Are you a breakfast person? By breakfast I mean a proper breakfast and not just a glass of milk or an apple. I'm very much a breakfast person. I need to eat something heavy in the morning to have a proper start to my day. It's been like that from my childhood days.
Even during school/college days , I didnt mind getting up early, to have breakfast on time. That reminds me… my Amma never had a tough time with both, my brother and myself, when it came to food. Her policy was this.. if you are hungry you'll eat the food no matter what it is or how it is. Somehow that policy worked well with us. We were never forced to eat, actually on the contrary we were asked not to eat too much ;)
So coming back to breakfast… These days I prefer a long breakfast outside, to a lunch or dinner. I can eat all I want and not worry about stuffing up myself, since the whole day is left to burn out the calories ;)
Some of my all time favourite dishes are also breakfast items, like Appam and Stew or Puttu and Chicken Mappas. In this recipe I've combined two things which I like best, Puttu and Beef :) If you like these two items, I've only one thing to say “Make it already!”
We had it just like that without any side dish, but I think Veg Stew is a good choice for this, if you prefer a side dish.

maria what is puttu powder? can we make it at home? :)
Puttu podi is basically rice powder but it’s not smooth in texture. It has a granular texture than the normal rice powder.
About making it at home, I think you can but I’ve never tried it :((
will look for it in the store :). not sure it would be available in hyderabad :D
Turned out great. Everyone at home loved it. Thanks Maria
Thanks Bindu :)
Maria, I wont get the ready-made wheat puttu podi here. can i make it with normal chappathi atta? should i roast it in that case?
Usually puttu podi has a grainy texture compared to atta/appam podi. So I’m not sure how it will work out…
thanks for the recipe…. just by reading ur recipe “Fill water in puttu kudam (pot). Place the puttu kutti on puttu kudam….” i remembered urvasi’s dialogue in “Achuvinte amma” movie…. “kadu vara kadu vara…. take vendakka…. cut cut cut…” :) juz kidding…
but one thing i must tell you, i wanted to see that chirattaputtu pic also :(
surely will try, but with chicken…. and did u add cooked meat?
haha, jeevichu pokande my dear ;) Chiratta puttu pic didnt come out well, I mean I wasnt very happy with the lighting, that’s why…
Yep, I used cooked meat, I’ve mentioned it in the recipe.

You can try veg stew for this recipe. I’ve already mentioned it in the write up :)
