• Rice flour or Puttu flour - 1 cup
  • Shredded Coconut - 3/4 cup
  • Sugar - 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup
  • Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Cashews and Almonds - 1 tbsp fried in ghee
  • Water - up to 1/4 cup

How to make it:

Mix rice flour and sugar together. Add the shredded coconut and cardamom powder. Sprinkle some water and mix it well. Still it should remain a powder. Now using a spoon fill the Puttu maker with the flour. Do not press too much. Let it be little loose so that the steam can pass through. Steam for 5-7 minutes. Let it cool for a while. Take it out slowly. Decorate with cashews and almonds fried in ghee. A nice and easy evening snack.
