About Chemba Puttu(Red Rice Puttu)

Puttu is a traditional and most popular cylindrical steamed cake from Kerala. It is made using what we call 'puttu flour' which is made by soaking short grain rice(red rice or white rice) for 2-3 hours, dry it indoors and then grind it into flour in a flour grinding mill, blender or processor is usually not recommended to make this flour, but I do it some times and get good results even with the blender.

  • Water - few teaspoons
  • Grated fresh coconut - 1/2 cup
  • Sugar - 4 tablespoons(or more)

How to make Chemba Puttu(Red Rice Puttu)

  1. 1. Place puttu flour in a bowl, add salt and a few teaspoons of water just to wet the flour. I added only 3 tspn of water.
  2. 2. Mix well with your fingers until the flour is very slightly wet and resembles a dry crumb. The flour should be crumbly and moist. There should be no lumps.
  3. 3. Let it rest for 5 minutes. Meanwhile pour water in the puttu steamer and bring it to a boil.
  4. 4. Now into the cylindrical tube we will layer the puttu. First add little grated coconut, then sugar, then add fistful of puttu flour.
  5. 5. Top it with little grated coconut and sugar. You can make multiple smaller layers following the same pattern or make just 1 layer.
  6. 6. Once the water start boiling in the pot, cover the cylindrical tube with a lid and fix it on the pot. Steam it for about 15 minutes.
  7. 7. When you get a nice flavor of steamed puttu, switch off, remove the cylindrical tube/puttu kutty from the pot, open it and gently push the puttu out.
  8. 8. . Serve hot with kadala curry a traditional side dish for puttu
My Tip: If using white rice puttu flour steam it for about 5-7 minutes.
