Pullattu Recipe||10 Amazing Serving Ideas Of It

The Pullattu recipe is a unique and unusual dish served in Indian restaurants. It is an amalgamation of curd, milk, and nut flours blended to make a creamy curry-like soup. The texture does not rely on potatoes or any other type of starch for its consistency.

Flour has been used since ancient times to ferment milk into yogurt or sour milk, which can then be used as a starter for various recipes such as the Pullattu recipe. Pullattu recipes can be either in pressure or a slow cooker.

The dish’s consistency will change depending on whether one uses a pressure cooker or a slow cooker. This dish has to be consumed immediately because it cannot be stored in the fridge like other recipes. Part of the enjoyment comes from eating Pullattu directly off the stove as it is prepared or as soon as it is done cooking.

Ingredients for  Pullattu recipe

  • 3/4 cup milk powder
  • 1/2 cup ghee or any fat (oil is not suggested)
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg powder or grated nutmeg (optional)
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons rose water or orange flower water
  • 4 tablespoons ice cold milk (as needed)

Directions for Pullattu recipe

Step 1: Heat milk powder, milk, and ghee in a pressure cooker for 10 minutes. Then add the nutmeg powder, sugar, and rose water. Allow cooking for 10 more minutes. Add ice-cold milk and cook for another 5 minutes on high heat (if using a pressure cooker).

Add ice cold milk here to give it the desired consistency since no starch is used in this recipe; hence it will be very liquidy if cooked on high heat). Once the desired consistency is achieved, switch off the heat. Mix well.

Step 2: Once cooked, use a hand mixer to blend it further. This will give the Pullattu recipe a creamy and smooth texture. The consistency should be that of a soup where you can still see chunks of milk powder floating in it. Pour the Pullattu recipe into individual bowls. Serve warm.
