Number of serving: 4
Ragi (Red Milet) flour - 1 1/2 cups

Rice flour - 1/2 cup

Sugar / Jaggery - 1/2 cup

Cardamom powder - 1 teaspoon

Grated Coconut  - 1/2 cup

Salt to taste


  • Dry roast the rice flour for about two minutes. Once it turns fragrant, mix it together with the ragi flour, coconut, salt, jaggery/sugar, cardamom powder and mix well.
  • Sprinkle some water and rub in with fingers so that it forms a crumbly texture.
  • To check if the right amount of water is added, just take a some mixture in your hand and clasp it within the palm.
  • If the mixture holds together then it is in the right consistency.If it is still powdery and falls off, sprinkle little more water.
  • Now shape the mixture using any mould.I used a small bowl.Take the mixture in whatever mould you have and just press it with your hand,so that the particles are held tightly.
  • Invert the bowl and tap it slightly.The mixture comes out easily.With care, transfer the shaped puttu to the steamer.
  • Steam cook for about 8 to 10 minutes.
