How to Make?
  • Wash the parboiled red rice and start roasting it in a pan.

  • Once it has started to pop, switch off the stove and let it cools down.

  • Transfer the contents to a mixer jar and start grinding the roasted red rice.

  • Now, take a pan, add little ghee and add a tablespoon of chopped nuts to it.

  • To the ghee roasted nuts, add the ground red rice and powdered jaggery.
  • Don't rush up to add water at once. Add water little by a little while stirring the mixture.

  • You could be able to see the puttu consistency when you have finished adding the water.
  • Add some freshly shredded coconut to the puttu and serve.

  • Feel free to add extra few tablespoons of water while stirring if you end up with a dry puttu.
  • Season with cardamom powder if you want. I usually skip adding cardamom as red rice with ghee and coconut adds a nice flavour to the puttu.
