Malabar Sooji puttu
1) Roasted rice flour - 2 cups
2) Grated coconut - 2 cups
3) Oil - 1 teas spoon
4) Water - 1 & 1/2 cup
5) Salt to taste
Boil the water with enough salt in a vessel, when the water boils, stich off the fire, and add the rice powder & mix well. And keep aside.
After few minutes knead the dough very well. Apply a little oil on your palm and make small balls or desired shape out of the dough. Sprinkle some rice flour on a big bowl to prevent the rice balls from sticking together.
Take a Puttu steamer, and then add 1 tablespoon of scraped coconut followed by rice balls then repeat the same step till you reach the top of the cylindrical shape.
Then fill the puttu pot half the way with water and set to heat. When steam starts coming up, lower the flame and cook again for 2- 3 mints. Use a skewer / chopstick to push out the puttu from the steamer to a serving dish.
