Erachi / Meat Puttu

Erachi puttu / Steamed Rice flour Cakes with meat mixture.

Ingredients and Method
inced meat 2 cups
onion 2
ginger garlic paste 2 teaspoons
green chillies 4
coriander leaves chopped 1/2 cup
pepper powder 1 teaspoon
turmeric powder 1 teaspoon
coriander powder 2 teaspoons
garam masala 1 teaspoon

or making the mixture,
chop onion, green chillies and coriander leaves finely. Heat oil, saute onion. When it is transparent, add garlic and ginger paste as usual. Stir for few seconds until the raw smell goes. Then saute green chillies, add meat, all the powders and salt into this. Add little water to cook. Once it is cooked, reduce water and make it a dry curry. Add coriander leaves and mix well.

For making puttu, first place little of this mixture in puttu kutti.Then put two handful of rice flour prepared. Then meat mixture. Repeat this to get three pieces of puttu. Cook this on the puttu vessel till the steam comes out. Let it cook for few more minutes after the first steam comes out.

You can follow the instructions for making puttu here.

If you love to have puttu with some curries, the Vegetable stew or Kuruma is best to take with this. Making the meat mixture very thick like curries adding tomatoes will prevent the steam to come out.
