This is a simple quickie dish which is made with left over ‘Puttu‘,and with the wide range of creative ideas you can vary the tastes as well as the appearance of this dish.My amma was very good at this,she kept changing the ingredients everytime.This used to be a regular tea time snack in my home,but we never get bored of it.You can either prepare it plain or add different type of sauces(soya sauce,chilly sauce etc) in it,also use any left over non-veg ,eggs,veggies etc that suits your tastebuds.Here’s the recipe of a simple stir fried puttu with scrambled eggs in it..
Left over puttu crumbled with hands – 2 cups
Eggs – 1 or 2
Chopped Onion – 1
Chopped ginger – 1 tsp
Red chillies – 4
Pepper powder – as needed
Curry leaves – a sprig
Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
Jeera seeds – 1/4 tsp
Salt – to taste
Oil – as needed
Check whether the left over puttu has become hard,steam it or microwave it for few minutes to make it soft.Heat little oil in a pan,scramble the eggs adding salt and pepper and keep it aside.Now heat oil in another pan,allow mustard seeds and jeera seeds to splutter.Add in red chillies,ginger and curry leaves and fry for few seconds.Stir in chopped onion and saute until onion turns translucent.Add the soft puttu and mix it well.Simmer it for 3 or 4 minutes,stirring in between.Add scrambled egg and pepper powder and mix well.Fry for 2-3 minutes more in low heat.Serve hot with tea.
