My other puttu recipe: Sweet Puttu
Ragi (Red Milet) flour - 1 1/2 cups
Rice flour - 1/2 cup
Sugar / Jaggery - 1/2 cup
Cardamom powder - 1 teaspoon
Grated Coconut - 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Dry roast the rice flour for about two minutes. once it turns fragrant, mix it together with the ragi flour, coconut, salt, jaggery/sugar, cardamom powder and mix well.
Sprinkle some water and rub in with fingers so that it forms a crumbly texture.
To check if the right amount of water is added, just take a some mixture in your hand and clasp it within the palm.If the mixture holds together then it is in the right consistency.If it is still powdery and falls off, sprinkle little more water.
Now shape the mixture using any mould.I used a small bowl.Take the mixture in whatever mould you have and just press it with your hand,so that the particles are held tightly.Invert the bowl and tap it slightly.The mixture comes out easily.With care, transfer the shaped puttu to the steamer.
Steam cook for about 8 to 10 minutes.
