How to Make Arisi Vella Puttu

  • Wash rice. Drain water.
  • Place a clean white cloth on a kitchen counter. Spread the drained rice. Let the cloth absorb the moisture.
  • After about 30 minutes, grind the rice coarsely.
  • Dry roast on a low flame till the rice flour turns to light brown in colour.
  • Cool the rice flour. Add turmeric powder and salt to the rice flour. Mix them together.
  • Sprinkle water a little by little until you are able to hold the flour and at the same time it should crumble. (Take care in this step. Excess water will spoil the puttu).
  • Place the flour in idly plates and steam cook for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, dissolve jaggery in a cup of water. Once it get dissolved, strain and bring to boil.
  • Add half-cooked channa dhal, coconut and cardamom powder. Let the syrup thicken.
  • Switch off the stove. Let the syrup cool.
  • Now, check the steam cooked rice flour. It should be really soft.
  • Combine jaggery syrup and rice flour together. Add ghee.
  • Serve for evening snack or breakfast.
