Chemba Puttu/Steam Cake

chemba puttu podi or Brown rice puttu flour – 2 cup
Shredded coconut – 1/2 cup
Sugar – 4 tbsp
Ghee or Clarified butter – 1 tsp
Hot water – 1 cup
Salt – 1/4 tsp
Boil a cup of water and add a quarter teaspoon of salt.
Take 2 cups of puttu podi in a bowl and sprinkle some salted hot water and mix well.
Keep sprinkling water and mix until you are able to hold the flour and it hold its shape when you open your palm.If there is not enough water, the puttu won’t be cooked.The flour needs to be free flowing as well as wet.If you have ‘puttu kutti’, the utensil to make puttu, fill the bottom portion that is the pot with water till 3/4th of it.Fill the top portion with two handful of the wet powder and 2 tbsp of shredded coconut and again with two handful of powder and repeat it till it is full..Cover it with the lid and place it on top of the pot and turn on the stove at medium heat.Leave it till the steam comes out of the holes in the lid, approximately 15 minutes.
N.B---- Rice Flour or  Wheat Flour Instead of chemba puttu podi
