The rest of the water can be used to
mix the puttu powder.
Grind the vegetables separately without
water and set them aside in two bowls.
Into each bowl add ½ a cup of puttu
powder, shredded coconut salt as required and vegetable stock and mix
In a third bowl mix the rest of the
puttu powder along with the remaining shredded coconut.
The three layers are ready.
Now for making the chiratta puttu, add
the first layer, the carrot mix at the bottom, then the plain mix and
finally the broccoli mix.
Spread a bit of shredded coconut mix
atop the broccoli layer.
The puttu is ready to be steamed.
Once turned over, it's a most colourful
puttu. You can add vegetables of your choice like beetroot for a more
colourful version. The puttu can be had with Bengal gram curry also.
