Oats Puttu | Healthy Breakfast


Oats Puttu is a much healthier variation compared to traditional styled ‘Puttu’ which is one of the most popular breakfast dishes in Kerala Cuisine. Puttu is an all time favorite dish for the Malayalee community, commonly relished with a bowl of hot and spicy kadala curry or a tasty egg curry. Our conventional ‘puttu’ dishes were prepared from rice flour. Oats Puttu is a much more healthier alternative where oats is combined with grated coconut and steamed. This healthy steam cake can be relished with any curry or gravy dish of your choice. It goes great with ripe bananas too. I am not a fan of Oats but I love this Healthy Breakfast Recipe that requires just a few minutes to prepare. You can prefer your own shapes be it cylindrical or cup shape. This is a Healthy Breakfast Recipe and diet watchers can count on this dish for a healthy fat free meal

Cooked Oats Puttu has a uniqueness and texture which basically comes from the steamer it is steamed with. You have to be careful not to press the mixture in the container before steaming. Fill it loosely, otherwise you will get a hard ‘Oats Puttu’. . Oats is a rich source of fibre and it helps in reducing cholesterol. It is extremely delicious and you can relish with your favorite curry dish. I frequently prepare the dish at home and my favorite side dish is green gram curry. My kids too love the combination and I am happy they are relishing something great. This is a complete and filling meal. Oats are loaded with Vitamin E, zinc and B complex. Oats help in healthy functioning of brain too. You can explore a well detailed Oats Puttu recipe here that can be easily prepared at home. Enjoy the dish.
