Puttu / Rice Flour Puttu

Rice Puttu/Rice Flour Puttu recipe is an easy and healthy snack or tiffin recipe. I learnt this recipe from my Grandmother. She makes this Puttu at least once in a week as evening tiffin during my childhood days. 
Instead of rice flour you can also use wheat flour, raagi flour also. Rice flour is also good for health. Instead of eating store bought fried and other oil items it is good to eat homemade snacks and steamed foods. 
Adding coconut and sugars depends on individual taste. You can add more or less. For making put nearly it will take about 5-7 minutes only, the main thing is mixing the flour in right texture. You should not use more water, just sprinkle little water, just make the flour wet and crumble no need to knead it hardly. 

  1. Idiyappam flour/ rice flour    1cup(u can also lightly roast it)
  2. Shredded Coconut      1/2cup
  3. Brown sugar or White sugar     5tsp or to taste
  4. Salt  a pinch
  • Take rice flour in a wide vessel, mix it with salt.
  • Using hot water sprinkle on the rice flour and  mix well.
  • Again sprinkle some water mix well use your hand to sprinkle water and mixing.
  • You should not add more water just sprinkle little by little and mix all the flour and make everything wet.
  • Once you finished mixing ,take a wet clean towel or any cotton cloth keep the rice powder in the cloth tie it gently or cover it lightly.
