How to make Puttu – Kerala Steamed Rice Cakes

  1. Wash well and soak both the rice together overnight. Drain in a seive and leave it for 1 hour till most of the moisture is gone.
  2. Some moisture is required to keep the “puttu podi” binded, so do not make it really dry.
  3. Grind the rice into a coarse powder with a pinch of salt in your mixer. Chop the shallots and add into the ground powder.
  4. Heat water in the puttu steamer. Layer the rice flour with a thin layer of grated coconut and continue to the top layer.
  5. Steam the puttu till done. Put the flame on high till the vapours come from the top and then steam on a low flame for 10 - 12 minutes till done. Push it onto a plate and serve warm.
  6. Puttu goes well with black chana/ kadala curry, cherupayar/ moong bean curry and ripe mysore/ large bananas with sugar.
