Kerala Puttu

Puttu Making:

Puttu mavu (rice flour) 2 cups, Salt, Hot water, Coconut (grated)

Just add sufficient hot water and salt to the rice flour. Mix the flour well with fingers. For making the Puttu, you may use the traditional Puttu Kudam. You may begin by adding a spoonful of grated coconut into the cylindrical container, followed by the well-mixed rice flour. As you add the rice flour into the container, in between, you may also add small quantities of grated coconut. Make sure that the cylinder is just filled and now you may place it on the Puttu Kudamafter covering the top portion of the cylinder. Allow the steam to take care of the cooking. Puttu will be ready in three minutes. Have it with Kadala curry for a great combination.
