BREAKFAST MENU - FRIED PUTU MAYYUM



'Putu Mayyum' is a Malay word for string hoppers. It is popular in southern India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Singapore.
Store bought puttu mayyum serve with grated coconut and brown sugar
The process for making putu mayyum consists of mixing rice flour or idiyappam flour with water and/or coconut milk, and pressing the dough through a sieve to make vermicelli-like noodles. These are steamed, usually with the addition of juice from the aromatic pandan leaf (screwpine) as flavouring. The noodles are served with grated coconut and jaggery, or, preferably, gur (date palm sugar). In some areas, gula melaka (coconut palm sugar) is the favourite sweetener.

In Malaysia and Singapore, putu mayyum and its relatives are commonly sold as street food from market stalls or carts, as well as being made at home, and are usually served cold. This dish may be eaten for breakfast with a vegetable stew or aviyal, or a fish curry, etc.

Making Putu Mayyum is a bit taxing as such it is worth to get the store bought “Putu Mayyum”. My family love putu mayyum both ways, the sweet and savoury and one of my children’s favourite is fried putu mayyum and I am going to share with you this awesome recipe which not many really know. It’s great for breakfast and it has almost similar taste to biryani. If you wish to try here’s my family recipe on fried putu mayyum.

Putu Mayyum Goreng…ini bukan sesuatu yang pelik…malah ini merupakan menu kesukaan anak-anak saya. Kalau beli putu mayyum pasti akan beli extra supaya esok paginya dapat digoreng buat sarapan pagi. Menarikny selepas digoreng rupanya macam bihun goring dan rasanya macam biryani. Mana taknya digoreng menggunakan minyak sapid an ditumis pakai daun kari dan tiga sekawan. Memang sedap resipi yang saya belajar dari belah keluarga mertua saya dan tidak disangka anak-anak suka sekali menu ini.
