'Mani puttu' is a traditional steamed dish that is prepared using a special 'sevanaazhi' or mould. Actor-vlogger Ibrahim Kutty, in his latest vlog, prepares the delicious dish for his viewers. He says mani puttu is a traditional iftar speciality that can be enjoyed with creamy coconut milk and sugar.
Meanwhile, non-vegetarians can try spicy mutton dishes, varutharacha chicken (chicken cooked in spiced coconut paste), or beef curry with mani puttu. Ibrahim Kutty recalls how he enjoyed this dish with his friends whenever mani puttu was made at his ancestral home in Vaikom.
He adds that this is one of the favourite dishes of Renji Panicker and Suresh Gopi. Ibrahim Kutty reveals that Renji Panicker often asks him to invite him over when mani puttu is prepared. Try out his simple recipe of soft mani puttu.
