Egg Masala Puttu

Puttu, is a traditional breakfast dish prepared by steam cooking rice flour along with grated coconut. Verieties of puttu preparation is becoming a trend in Kerala Cuisine from street side restaurants to Star Hotels. I have a few Puttu reicipies shared in my previous blogs.  Here I share my own version of a delicious Puttu preparation – EGG MASALA PUTTU Rice flour layered with Egg Masala and grated coconut. 


For Masala

  1. Onion Sliced : 2 (medium)
  2. Turmeric powder : 1 pinch (big)
  3. Chilli powder : 1 ½  T- Sp (Adjust)
  4. Garam masala : ¼ T- Sp
  5. Oil : 2 Tbl- Sp (Adjust)
  6. Salt for taste
  7. Curry leaves
  8. Boiled eggs : 2

For Puttu

  1. Rice flour : 1 Cup
  2. Coconut : ¾  Cup (Adjust)
  3. Salt for taste
  4. Water : ~ ½ Cup(Adjust)


  • Slice the boiled eggs and keep it.
  • Heat oil in a pan and sauté the onion with salt until brown and soft.
  • Add the curry leaves and sauté it.
  • Then add the chilli powder, turmeric powder and fry it for about 1 minute .
  • Finally add the garam masala and the sliced boiled egg and mix everything together. Switch off the stove.


  • In a vessel, add the rice flour along with salt and ½ cup of coconut and mix it.
  • Sprinkle water a little at a time and make a moistened puttu podi, the consistency should look like bread crumbs.
  • Boil water in a puttu maker/pressure cooker.
  • I used coconut shell for making the puttu, you can use your puttu maker alternately. First spread a little coconut followed by the puttu podi and then the masala. Repeat the layering until the coconut shell is full, make sure to finish a coconut layer and close it.
  • Keep the coconut shell in the stem of the pressure cooker.
  • Steam it until the puttu is completely cooked.
