Kerala Kollah Puttu

I have always been very fond of all kerala breakfast. They have so many healthy dishes for breakfast that helps us keep going. My all time favorite breakfast items have been Appam with Stew, Puttu with Sugar and Iddiappam. Wow all mouth watering dishes. Amma makes Puttu both in the regular form and in the vessel. Both ways I just love it.
