Bread Puttu / Steam Cakes With Bread Crumbs

This is one of the easiest of breakfast recipes. You can cook this in few minutes. A tasty dish which can take with sugar , curries or boiled banana.If you have leftover bread in your fridge use it to make this delicious breakfast. Children can take this as a tiffin too. It will not turn hard later like the usual rice powder puttu.I used 4 or 5 bread slices to make these 3 pieces of puttu.

How to prepare bread puttu
salt (if the bread is unsalted)
coconut grated

Slice the sides of bread. Sprinkle very little water on bread pieces and crumble them which actually look like puttu podi.(you can use mixer grinder to make bread crumbs.Then sprinkle water over it).Mix with hands. Then put two handful into the puttu kutti then coconut grated on top. Repeat this until you make three pieces of puttu. Steam them on the puttu kudam / vessel. Take out just like we do for making puttu.
Use very little water to sprinkle over or you can make without sprinkling water too.

For making puttu / steam cakes follow the puttu recipe here.

  11. very unusual, seena, don't have a puttu maker, will steel tumblers in a pressure cooker work?

  12. Hi Sra,
    You can top coconut on bread crumbs in the steel tumbler and steam it.Though it won't have the puttu shape, you can taste it.But don't know it will stick to the tumbler.

  13. How innovative...Will definitely make it
