Red Rice Sweet Puttu


Red rice puttu mix - 1/2 cup
Scraped coconut - 4 teaspoon
Ghee - 4 teaspoon
Sugar - 6 teaspoon
Salt - as needed

  • Take the puttu mix in a vessel; sprinkle salt mixed water and blend well so that no small balls are formed.
  • Take the puttu vessel; fill it alternately with coconut and puttu mix.

  • Cover the vessel after filling with ingredients; place the vessel over the cooker (where normally you place the weight) and allow it to cook it full steam for almost 5 minutes.
  • Then shift the puttu to a vessel, add ghee and sugar and mix well.

  • Again shift the puttu to the puttu vessel; press well and place it over a plate.

  • Same procedure of cooking for white puttu.
  • Elaichi powder and cashewnuts can be added, as per need.
  • This procedure is the same as kuzhaiputtu..in Kerala they use oconut shells for making puttu..this vessel is used and it is in the shape of coconut shell.
  • When eaten with banana, the taste gets enriched.
  • Instead of ghee, gingely oil / sesame oil can be added, as it is cure for menstrual pains and good for the girls at the time of attaining puberty.
