Egg Biriyani Puttu

There is a famous restaurant in Kerala in the name of "Dhe Puttu". They serve various varieteies of puttu. I haven't yet visited this restaurant but happened to see their menu in internet. In that menu I cam across the name "egg biriyani puttu". From the name I invented my own recipe and believe me it was a super-super hit at home. We can make this with ready puttu also. Need not be a left-over puttu. It is a very good lunch box option also. Do try it out.


Puttu (cooked) - 1 cup
Eggs - 2 nos
Onions - 100 grams
Tomatoes - 75 grams
Ginger/garlic paste - 20 grams
Green chilly powder - 2 nos
Coriander powder - 20 grams
Garam masala powder - 15 grams
Chilly powder - 10 grams
cloves - 2
cardamom - 2
cinnamon - 1/2 inch stick
Oil/ ghee - 25 grams
Salt and turmeric powder - to taste
Coriander leaves/ Mint leaves - few


  • If its left-over puttu stored in fridge, steam it either in microwave or over stove top to make it soft and moist. Else make fresh puttu and keep it aside.
  • Boil the eggs and keep them aside.
  • Chop the onions, tomatoes and green chillies. 
  • In a kadai, pour oil or ghee. Add the cloves cardamom and cinnamon, fry for about 10 seconds.
  • Add the chopped onions, green chillies, ginger/garlic paste. Saute until the raw smell goes off
  • Add the chopped tomatoes. Fry until the mixture turns mushy.
  • Add salt, turmeric powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder and the chilly powder. Saute for one minute. Switch off stove.
  • Now layer and serve. 1st layer add puttu. Above that add one boiled egg and the masala. Add another layer of puttu. Garnish with coriander / mint leaves and serve.

I served with simple onion raitha!! Enjoy!!
