I wish all my readers a wonderful and prosperous new year 2014.Hope all your dreams and resolutions comes true.This is my first post of 2014 and I am going to start with a healthy Kerala breakfast recipe.Nool puttu and puttu are the popular breakfast dishes of Kerala, But this is a combo of nool puttu and chiratta puttu. For making this you need a chiratta puttu maker,idiyappam Presser and pressure cooker to steam the puttu(Idiyappam,string hoppers).Hope everybody likes it and this goes well with kerala stew,green peas curry or kadala curry.I got this recipe from the “Double Horse-  50 breakfast ideas” cookbook.
