How to Make Paruppu Puttu

  • Dry roast the dals together till they turn red and give out a pleasant aroma.

  • Steam the paste in a pressure cooker for 10 minutes and cool.
  • Break the steamed lump into pieces.
  • Heat ghee in a pan and roast the cashew nuts and raisins.
  • Add the lentil pieces and cook them on low fire until they crumble into a fine sand like texture; stir now and then with a spatula.
  • In a separate pan, dissolve jaggery in one cup of water and strain.
  • Heat the jaggery water in another pan until it starts foaming to get a one string consistency.
  • Pour the jaggery syrup into the prepared dal and blend well.
  • If it becomes soggy you can put it on low flame and stir until you get the required texture.
