Indian Cart Coconut Shell Puttu Maker are great for cooking Puttu in traditional style.

Puttu is a breakfast dish eaten in Kerala, parts of Tamil Nadu, the Kanara region of Karnataka and Sri Lanka. Puttu or pittu is a word of Tamil origin which means "Portioned".

It is made of steamed cylinders of ground rice layered with coconut. It is highly popular in the Indian state of Kerala as well as in many areas of Sri Lanka, where it is also known as pittu.

Puttu is served with side dishes such as chickpea curry or banana. Puttu is made by slowly adding water to ground rice until the correct texture is achieved.

It is then spiced, formed and steamed with layers of grated coconut. A number of cooking vessels are used, such as traditional vessels where a perforated coconut shell is attached to a section of bamboo, or a Chiratta puttu made of a coconut shell or of metal shaped similarly to a coconut shell.

The coconut shells are maintained in their actual shape, while designing a fun, creative steamer wholly from nature. These little pieces of tropical paradise make a great addition to your kitchen.
