Ragi Puttu

  • Ragi flour(finger millet) - 2 cups
  • Grated coconut - 1 cup
  • Water - 1/2 cup
  • Salt to taste
Method :

Puttu maker has two parts, puttu kuzhal and puttu kudam.Fill the puttu kudam with water(quantity should be from ½ to ¾ th of puttu kudam). Close it with the lid and heat it.

Meanwhile add salt into the ragi flour and mix well. Sprinkle some water and mix well without any lumps. Again Sprinkle some water and mix well without any lumps. Repeat sprinkling water & mixing until you get the right consistency. The flour should be wet enough for steaming. It should not become too watery. The right consistency should be you could make a ball with the flour and it could be breakable in to flour.

Once the flour mixture is ready, fill the puttu maker with coconut layer and flour mixture.
Layer the Puttu maker with some grated coconut first, then the ragi mixture and then the grated coconut again. Repeat the coconut layer and ragi mixture until you fill the puttu maker. ( for step by step explanations with pictures click here.) Now the puttu kuzhal is ready with flour.

Once the water in the puttu kudam starts boiling, fit the puttu kuzhal and heat it until the steam comes out from the top of the puttu maker. Continue heating for 5 more minutes and remove from heat.

Serve with sugar and banana.
If you don't have puttu maker you can use idli cooker for steaming.
