Servings 4 people


  • 1 cup Puttu powder raw rice soaked, powdered and roasted slowly to remove moisture
  • 1 cup Coconut grated
  • 1 tsp Salt


  • For preparing traditional kerala puttu, first mix salt with lukewarm water. Sprinkle water slowly to the rice powder and make it moist and sort of crumble. Take care that the puttu powder is not too much moist.
  • Take the crumbled and moist rice powder in a blender and blend. Too much blending will make the puttu powder too much moist. One single run is enough.
  • For making puttu a special steaming vessel is used named puttukutti. Put a tablespoon of grated coconut in the puttukutti and then put 2-3 tablespoons of moist rice powder. Repeat till it is filled.
  • Close the lid and steam the rice mixture for 2 minutes. Serve the delicious Puttu with kadala curry or a combination of sugar and bananas. This is a healthy breakfast dish, very popular in Kerala.
