Directions

Initial Preparation:

  1. Mix together rice powder and salt in a bowl.
  2. Sprinkle approx: ¼ cup of lukewarm water in the rice powder mixture and set aside for 10 minutes.

  4. Then take the puttu mould from the bottom vessel, add 1 tablespoon grated coconut as first layer.
  5. Then fill the prepared rice flour mixture and mango pieces alternatively into the puttu mould(refer video).
  6. Finish with final layer of grated coconut on the top. Gently press on the top. Make sure that the mould is not tightly packed.
  7. Place it over the bottom vessel and cook till you see the steam escaping through the holes of the lid.
  8. Once you saw the steam, lower the flame and cook for another 3-4 minutes.
  9. Remove the puttu mould, open the lid, gently push the puttu to a plate by pushing the perforated disc at the bottom of the puttu mould using a long stick.
  10. Serve hot with ripe mango pieces.
