Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Serves: 2
  1. Wheat Flour- 1 cup
  2. Salt - to taste
  3. Grated coconut - as required

  • Dry roast the wheat flour over medium low heat ,stirring continuously for about 5 minutes or until the colour changes slightly.Set aside to cool.
  • Transfer the wheat flour to a mixing bowl ,add salt and  mix well.Sprinkle water little at a time and mix well using your fingers until you get a crumbly texture with tiny lumps.(The mixture should  not be dry and should be just wet enough for steaming.)
  • Transfer this mixture into a mixer /food processor ,pulse for few seconds.
  • This is done to remove the lumps and to make it soft.
  • Add 1 or 2 tbsp of grated coconut  into the puttu mould.Spoon in the wheat mixture until the mould is halfway filled.Next add 1 or 2 tbsp of grated coconut and fill the remaining half with the wheat mixture.Finish off with 1 or 2 tbsp of grated coconut ,if desired.
  • Steam it for about 5 to 8 minutes.Transfer the cooked puttu to a serving tray.Serve with banana and pappadam or kadala curry.

    • Make sure you add water little at a time.If there is too much water in the wheat flour mixture,puttu will turn out hard.
