PUTTU / STEAM CAKE


Ingredients :
Puttu podi / puttu powder / Rice flour - 2 Cup
Fresh Grated Coconut - 1 Cup
Salt - As Required
Water - As required

Method :
1) If you are using Rice flour,just warm it for a while in a low flame.Dont let the colour change.If you are using Puttu powder,then no need to warm.
2) Put the powder in a bowl,add salt and add water little by little and mix well.The flour should be wet enough for steaming.Be careful while adding water,do not add more in the beginning.Add little by little to get the correct consistency.

3) Keep your puttu maker ready,now layer it with coconut and the flour mix.First layer it with some coconut,then puttu powder,then coconut again and so on.The last and the first layer will be coconut.
4) Steam it for 2-3 mins on top of the cooker or the regular puttu maker.When done serve hot with kadala curry/Black chana Curry Or Steamed plantains Or Potato stew Or Mutton curry Or any.The list just goes on.The most famous Kerala breakfast is ready.

Hi
This is anu. I would like to know, is rice flour enough for making puttu or do you need puttu powder also? Could you please tell me?

Viji said...

Hi Anu,Rice is fine for puttu.I sometimes make puttu with rice flour.it comes out pretty well.Just saute the flour in light flame till its little warm but dont brown it!!! Happy cooking :-) give me the feed back soon.
