For this recipe you will need a puttu maker or an idli mould, available in good specialist Asian stores.

Timings :

Preparation time: less than 30 mins

Cooking time: 10 to 30 mins

Ingredients :

  • 500g/17oz rice flour
  • pinch salt
  • ½ tsp cumin seeds
  • water, as necessary
  • 250g/8½oz freshly grated coconut, or desiccated coconut

Method :

1. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the rice flour, salt and cumin seeds until well combined. Add enough water to bring the flour mixture together as a coarse paste.

2. Fill the bottom section of the puttu maker with water.

3. Spread a layer of the rice flour paste evenly into the top section of the puttu maker, then sprinkle over a layer of the grated coconut. Repeat the process until all of the paste and the coconut has been used up.

4. Bring the water in the puttu maker to the boil. Steam the puttu for 2-3 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.

5. To serve, turn out the puttu onto a serving plate and serve with sliced banana or ripe plantains.
