jiggery and grated coconut inside, appam, stew in coconut milk, banana and wheat puttu.

Puttu delights at the restaurant De Puttu at Edapally

Puttu combo

Meat puttu (Irachi puttu)
 When our son from Australia was on holidays visiting us at Aluva, we thought of having Puttu delight for lunch at De Puttu, Edapally.
On 20th December 2015, we made it.
Puttu combo, a delicious dish with puttu in the shape of heart along with veggies and four sides of egg roast, veggie salad, chicken dry roast and banana in sugar syrup.
It's tasty and a balanced full meal with carbohydrates, protiens, vitamins and minerals.

Clockwise....Puttu combo, Irachi puttu, fish puttu, and tapioca puttu in fish curry

My husband and son at De Puttu, Edapally
Irachi puttu was my grandson's preference.
Soft and delicious with beef roast, grated coconut and chopped cilantro.
Nice and we loved it.

Fish puttu will be the delight for sea food lovers.
Tapioca puttu was the star with
delicious fish curry.


Thanks Giving Lunch at SA,USA.

With great pleasure, sharing my experience of the " Thanks Giving Lunch", we had with our daughter at San Antonio, USA at Luby's.
We have the option to choose the dishes.
The following are the menu we selected.
The lunch include turkey, ham, corn, pasta, steamed veggies,
pickled olive, cucumber and chillies, mashed potato, fried okra, bread butter jam and cakes were the delights.
The queue for the lunch itself explains the taste.
The whole family of great grand parents and great grand kids was a real feast for the eyes while in queue.
