  • 2 cups - raw Rice
  • 1 cup - grated Coconut
  • Salt to taste
  • Water to sprinkle
  • How to Make Kerala puttu:

    1. To make rice flour:
    2. Soak the rice for about 3 hours and strain it.
    3. Spread the rice on a cloth or a plate and dry the same.
    4. Grind the dried rice to a fine powder.
    5. To make puttu:
    6. Add salt and water (a little by little) to the rice flour.
    7. Try to make a lump out of the wet mixture and ensure that the lump does not break off. This is the right stage when you can stop adding water.
    8. Now add a handful of grated coconut in the puttu maker followed by three handfuls of rice flour and again followed by one handful of grated coconut.
    9. Follow this step till you reach the top of the cylinder.
    10. Cover with the lid and steam for 2-3 minutes.
