I am wishing all the Indians, a very happy republic day 2012!…I am glad to post the tri flavored puttu and Karamani curry…Both are my family’s fav dish….

For Green,Grained a cup of  Mint and Green Chillies..

Its a must-try variation of puttu…

For Yellow Color, I used Corn Puttu Podi

The green puttu tasted the best out of the rest.

Set aside for 15 minutes

Add the mint water to the puttu maavu with salt...Set aside
