Thakkali Puttu

Thakkali puttu is enhancing the taste of puttu with tomatoes. I make this very easily with tomato thokku. I generally have a stock of thakkali thokku at home whenever the tomato prizes comes down like 10 rs a kg. Because having tomato thokku makes life easire. It can be used as a side dish for idli, dosa even chapathi and can be mixed with rice for a quick dinner. 
Since I foten mix rice with thakkali thokku and have it for quick dinner, I thought why not try the same with puttu. And the result was awesome. I have already posted thakkali thokku recipe here. So over to thakkali puttu recipe,


Puttu - 1 cup
Thakkali thokku - 3 tbsp
Onion - 1 small
Green chilly - 1 small
ginger - 10 grams
Oil - 1 tbsp
Cloves - 2 nos
Coriander leaves - few


  • Finely chop the onions, green chilly and ginger.
  • In a kadai add oil. Add the cloves and fry for 30 secs.
  • Add the chopped onions, green chilly and ginger. Fry until the onions turn translucent.
  • Add the thakkali thokku and add 2 tbsp water. Mix well until the mixture boils.
  • Simmer the gas stove. Add the left-over puttu and mix well.
  • Heat it for another 2 minutes.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves.
