Vennai Puttu

Some tradtional recipes doesnt need any introduction specially when its comes from your grandma's kitchen..Vennai puttu is one among those tradtional sweet dish prepared very frequently at my grandma's place..For this month's Indian cooking challenge,Srivalli asked me to share something, i didnt even took a minute to share my most favourite vennai puttu,to be honest am yet to post this traditional sweet in my space..Its time to share this super yummy silky puttu which ressembles quite like pudding prepared with grounded raw rice paste with jaggery syrup,flavoured with cardamom powder,sliced coconut chunks and cooked channadal...


1cup Raw rice
1/2cup Grated jaggery
1/2tsp Cardamom powder
2tbsp Shredded or sliced fresh coconut pieces
1/4cup Cooked channadal
Few cashew nuts

Soak the raw rice for three hours,grind as fine paste (its should reassembles like idli batter) with half cup of water, meanwhile make a jaggery syrup with jaggery and quarter cup of water, strain the syrup and keep aside..

Bring boil 2cups of water in a heavy bottomed vessel, now add the grounded rice paste and cook in medium flame until the rice paste gets well cooked (don't stop stirring,stirring is very much important,you need a strong and helping hand for stirring continuously) now add the jaggery syrup,cooked channadal,cardamom powder, give a stir and cook until it turns as mass and gets off from the vessel,finally add the coconut pieces,give a stir and put off the stove..finally pour this thick mass of rice-jaggery paste to a greased plate, arrange the fried cashew nuts over the prepared vennai puttu,let them gets cool completely..

Slice it as per need and enjoy with a cup of tea..
