Puttu a is traditional food from the state of Kerala in India. It is a breakfast variety made with whole wheat flour. Whole wheat flour is mixed with warm water with salt and is steamed to cook. Sugar/palm sugar, coconut are then added for the perfect taste. Sesame oil is a must since it is the one that gives a nice aroma to this recipe. (Recipes courtesy of Food.com - Chef CookingJingalala)

Addictive and extremely healthy! Sometimes you can find sprouted lentils or bean medley in the higher-end markets, but you can sprout your own! TO SPROUT LENTILS: Measure about 6 to 8 tablespoons and soak them in plenty of water to cover overnight. The next morning, drain and rinse, and put them into a wide mouth jar covered with cheesecloth and secured with a rubber band. Lay the jar on its side and cover with a towel. Set aside on the kitchen counter to sprout for the day, rinsing them once or twice and draining them thoroughly. If the weather is cold, they may take a little longer to sprout. Rinse them and leave them until the next morning when you'll notice each lentil has sprouted a little tail. They will now be ready to enjoy. Time estimate does not include sprouting time.
