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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
