Red Rice Flour Puttu ( Kerala Rice Flour Puttu / Chemba Puttu)

>> Friday, April 13, 2012

Today's treat is Puttu made with store-bought red rice flour. A very healthy and delicious breakfast. I usually prepare it on weekends. This dish is quite popular in South-India. I love to have it with coconut, little sugar sprinkled, and banana. DH loves to accompany it with kadala curry. You can find the recipe for kadala curry here.



Ingredients:

Red Rice Flour - 1 cup
Shredded coconut - 1/2 cup
Salt - as per taste
Lukewarm water - 1/4 cup

Method:

Take red rice flour in a wide plate, mix it with salt. Now, using your hand, sprinkle water little by little on red rice flour and mix well. When it has reached the texture of crumbs, stop adding water. But make sure that the flour is wet, otherwise it will not cook properly.

Take "puttu kutti, the utensil used to prepare puttu. Fill the pot with water and put it on flame. Now, take the top portion, and start filling it with a handful of wet flour and 2 tbsp of shredded coconut alternatively till it is full. I like to end with shredded coconut layer. Close the lid.

When water in the pot starts to boil, place the top portion over it. Reduce the flame to medium. Let it cook for 15 minutes.

Serve it with sugar and banana; or with kadala curry. Enjoy!!
