GODHAMBHU PUTTU


This is another recipe which I got from my mother in law. Before marriage I was a big zero in cooking. Only thing I used to do was making tea and rolling chapathies. So after marriage when I moved with hubby I used to call my mom almost daily spending so much money on STD to ask for the recipes, Slowly I learned basic recipes from my mom. Thank god for one thing whatever I cooked even before I knew cooking my hubby ate without any complaint.... :)


During my college days I went to my friends house for a visit and her mom gave me this godhambhu puttu ,before that I never had that puttu before.My mother doesnt make it.I liked it very much but I didnt ask her mom for the recipe because I was not keen to cook at that time.

Hubby told me that his mother used to make this puttu at home and it was just like rice puttu. so I decided to try it like our Rice puttu,but it was an utter Flop!! First time when I tried it puttu podi was so wet and big big lumps came out and I couldnt break it,so I added more water and made dosa,dosa also didnt came well as there was lumps :( I tried one more time but it was again a flop so I dropped the idea to make puttu.


After a few months my mother in law came to stay with us for few months and at that time she told me that there is a measurement for adding water and atta.We have to boil water and then add the atta to boiling water and stir continously so that lumps doesnt form. Finally I learned to make godhambnu puttu
