Ingredients Serving: 3

  1. 2 cups of puttu flour
  2. 1/2 cup of warm water
  3. 1/2 cup of grated coconut
  4. 1/2 tsp of salt


  1. Mix the rice flour and salt well together. Add the water a little at a time and mix with your fingertips. We are looking for a crumbly and moist flour consistency.
  2. It should hold its shape when pressed between your fist but easily crumble when you press it harder.
  3. You need to use a steaming apparatus to make puttu and the most common is obviously the puttu maker available exclusively for the purpose.
  4. Spoon in the puttu flour until the mould is halfway filled. Then add another layer of coconut and fill up the rest with the flour.
  5. Steam for about 8-12 mins depending on the size of your mould.
  6. When cooked, unmould by pressing through the mould using the stem of a spatula, gently
  7. Let it cool down a bit before serving with a spicy kadala curry
