For the unversed, puttu is a staple South Indian breakfast dish made by combining rice and coconut shavings. It is made with ground rice and coconut, that are layered in a special cylindrical-shaped vessel and pressed together. It is served with a tangy chickpea curry called, Kadala Curry.
In the recent experiment, none of the usual puttu ingredients were used. Instead, the ice cream was made in a cylindrical vessel. There are multiple videos and pictures of this interesting dish on social media. In this recipe, corn flakes, dried raisins, tutti-frutti and nuts are added together and mixed with scoops of homemade ice cream. The ice cream could be of any flavour that you may like from mango to strawberry to good old vanilla. The mixture is then put in the cylindrical puttu vessel. The final product does look exactly like putti. If you are trying it at home, you can also top it with shavings of nuts and mixed fruits. Interesting, isn’t it?
This unique experiment has raked in millions of views on different such videos, from ice cream lovers, making puttu ice cream one of the latest trending dishes on the internet now.
