Servings 8 servings


  • 2 c. Puttu Podi (Fried Rice Powder)
  • ½ c. grated coconut
  • 1 tsp grated cumin
  • salt to taste
  • ½ tsp. sugar
  • ½-¾ c. water lukewarm


  • Begin by placing a little salt in the warm water. Then mix the cumin and sugar into the rice powder until it's combined. Next, sprinkle the water on the rice powder and mix gently until the powder comes together and you have a loose dough. When the dough begins to form, stop adding water and run the dough through a grinder so that there are no lumps.
  • Next, it's time to make the Puttu. Fill the Puttu Kudam with water, half of its capacity. Then place a handful of the grated coconut in the Puttu Kutti, fill with the rice mixture, and then top with another handful of grated coconut. Continue this process until you reach the top of the container. Then close the lid and place the Puttu Kutti on top of the Puttu Kudam and steam for about 10-12 minutes. Then remove and serve with bananas or Mutta Curry.
