How to make Kerala Puttu

  1. Clean and soak the rice overnight.

  3. Allow it to dry a bit (for about 5 minutes) but ensure it retains a bit of the moisture, else the rice will not grind well in mixer-blender.
  4. Grind the rice till it is very mildly coarse.
  5. Mix the rice powder, sugar, salt and 3 tablespoons of grated coconut.
  6. Sprinkle 4 tablespoons of water on this and mix well.
  7. The mixture will be crumbly. Keep the mix aside for 10-15 mins.
  8. Take the puttu mould or any perforated container and place 3 tablespoons of shredded coconut followed by 8 tablespoons of the crumbly puttu mix.
  9. Repeat this process till the mould is full. Top off the mould with shredded coconut.
  10. Steam the puttu for 10 mins.
  11. Serve hot with sugar & chopped banana or channa gravy
