Puttu/ Steamed Rice Cakes

Puttu is another common breakfast in Kerala. It is made out of rice flour. Puttu is made with the help of a Puttu maker. Nowadays Instant puttu mix is available in Indian grocery stores. The dish has to be made with lot of coconut. Puttu has kadala curry as its accompaniment.Its very easy to make.


1.1 cups of roasted rice powder
2.1/2 cup of coconut
3.Salt to taste

Mix salt in water and add the water little by little to the rice flour and mix it. You should be careful while mixing the water to the rice flour. It should not change to dough. It should be in a powdered form wet enough for steaming.
Now add a fistful full of grated coconut in the puttu maker and then add the rice flour then add another handful of coconut.This is done till you reach the top of the cylindrical shape.
Close the lid and steam for 10minutes.

Serve hot with kadala curry.
