Mango Oats Puttu Recipe | Steamed Oats Delicious & Healthy Recipe

Delicious & healthy steamed oats puttu…

Oats are a healthy ingredient & a variety of dishes can be made out of it. One of the dishes I love making with it is oats puttu or steamed oats. Puttu is a popular breakfast in Kerala, layered with wet rice flour & coconut & steam cooked. Puttu can also be made with oats & can be layered with different ingredients. Recently, I layered oats with diced mango, dates, jaggery, and coconut & steamed. Poured thick coconut milk over the hot oats puttu, the result was beyond delicious.

Mango oats puttu is a delightful and nutritious breakfast option that combines the goodness of oats and the tropical flavor of mango. Enjoy it as a wholesome start to your day!
