Any spicy veg or non veg curry suite with this steamed cake, sometimes, we serve with ripe banana and papad also. 

As I stated already, Key ingredient of puttu is coconut and roasted coarsely ground rice flour. In this recipe, I used store bought branded rice flour. Not all rice flour available in the market taste alike, try to choose Kerala based brands. For almost five to six years, I am using Ponkathir brand, because it gives the traditional taste and flavor.

It is not necessary to depend on the branded items available in the market, you can make puttu podi easily at home. Just soak raw rice for a couple of hours, wash, drain, coarsely ground and dry roast. Very simple, but requires labor and time. In Kerala, you can buy roasted rice flour for puttu directly from flour mills.

  2. Pour one cup water, give a gentle mix. Note: The amount of water used, depends on the brand you choose. Please follow the package direction.

  4.  Mix well with your hands . Put 3/4 or 1 cup grated coconut and mix well. Adjust the amount of coconut to your taste, but do remember only with sufficient coconut we get tasty puttu.

  5. Take puttu maker, (the cylindrical mold for making puttu), Insert the perforated plate.

  6.  Put one layer of grated coconut first. Use one or two tablespoons of coconut and spread evenly, otherwise the puttu will stick to the perforated plate and won't allow the steam to enter.


  7. Then fill one half of the puttukutti with the rice flour coconut mix and make add a thin layer of coconut followed by rice flour mix. The coconut layer between rice flour not only increase its taste but also help us to cut easily. 

  8. Close with its lid and place it on the puttu kalam and steam for three to five minutes.
