Kuzha Puttu

2 cups Red rice puttu flour
salt to taste
3/4 cup freshly grated coconut
A pinch of Cardamon powder
Ripe bananas

  • Heat a wide non stick pan and dry roast the red rice flour on low flame till it emits a nice aroma. Cool the flour and sieve it.
  • In a big bowl, add the red rice flour, cardamon powder and salt and rub well to mix.  
  • Sprinkle water little by little into the rice flour and mix well till it resembles bread crumbs. 
  • In the meanwhile, boil water in the puttu maker base pan.
  • Now fill the puttu maker's top with 2 tbsp of grated coconut followed by the puttu flour till you reach half of the puttu maker. Then again fill it with 2 tbsp of coconut  followed by the puttu flour till you reach the brim of the puttu maker. 
  • Make sure you don't press the puttu flour and pack it loosely in the puttu maker. 
  • Now place the top of the puttu maker to its base and steam for 6-8 mins. Remove and carefully push the steamed puttu out of the puttu maker.
  • Serve the puttu hot with ripe bananas and fine sugar.
