  • Water-1/4 - 1/3 cup
  • Salt-a pinch
  • Cardamom Powder-1/2 tsp
  • tbs Sugar-4-5or according to taste
  • Grated Coconut-1/4 cup

  • In a plate take the flour and mix salt.
  • Sprinkle water and rub the flour so that it is uniformly hydrated.
  • To find out the correct amount of water to be used, hold the flour in your palm and it should be able to hold shape but once you touch it should crumble. When this consistency is reached, you can move on to next step.
  • Add cardamom powder and mix well.
  • In a steaming basket, place a thin cloth and add the flour in it.
  • Cover and steam cook for 15 minutes.
  • When you take a pinch of the puttu, it must clump together.
  • Once it is ready, transfer it to a bowl and add sugar and grated coconut.
  • Add ghee and mix well.
  • Serve immediately.
