केरला पुटटु रेसिपी

Puttu is a recipe of Kerala, which is very healthy and tasty.  Healthy because, it is a steamed recipe, and no oil or frying.  Puttu can be made both with white rice flour and red rice flour.  Puttu can also be made with ragi flour, jowar flour, wheat flour, etc.  Puttu flour is made by washing rice and drying it in shade and then dry grinding  it into smooth powder and then  dry roasting the flour in medium flame until it gives out an aroma.  Ready made puttu flour is also available in market.  In this video, I have made use of the ready made puttu flour.
