Sura puttu is my favorite dish. My mom used to prepare this twice a month in my childhood days and 3 days a week when i delivered my son. People used to say, that paal sura is good for delivered ladies as it produces more breast milk. This recipe is again my mom recipe and my family favorite too.

How did I miss this delish post of yours? We too enjoy sura puttu very much. Its always mum's version will still be the best. Another of our fav too but those sura is only available once a while at my place.


This looks soo inviting...


Fine receipe
Small suggest - While saute can also add SOMBU 2 spoon
For extra taste - can add cashew paste (submerged in water for 15 mts & grind the same with that water) for remembering rich taste
