Puttu is a steamed cake traditionally made of wet coarsely ground rice flour mixed with grated coconut, salt and spiced with cumin seeds. Another variation to the puttu, I have given for this is instead of water I have added coconut milk to mix the puttu powder. And that this puttu is also steamed in coconut shell.
Coconut shell is one of the most eco-friendly one and it imparts Natural taste and smell to the puttu.
First, take an empty coconut shell, the part which has eyes, scrape off the inside remains with a spoon, rise in water. There are three eyes in the coconut, poke the flimsy eye with your finger or with a spoon.
