  1. Take rice flour or puttu flour in a bowl. Add a little salt to it and mix it well.
  2. Add water, little at a time and mix with your fingertips until you have a crumbly and moist flour consistency. It should hold its shape when pressed between your fist but easily crumble when you press it harder.
  3. The flour should be crumbly and moist. There should be no lumps.
  4. Add about 1-2 tbsp grated coconut to the bottom of the puttu maker mold.
  5. 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.
  6. Steam for about 8-10 mins depending on the size of your mold.
  7. When you get a nice aroma of steamed puttu, switch off & let it cool for sometime. Open it and gently push the puttu into a plate.
  8. Serve it with kadala curry or yellow banana and sugar
