My Grandma's Recipe - How to make...Rice puttu

Rice Puttu.  

Rice puttu is a delicious, steam-cooked, easy-to make sweet dish. I learnt this recipe from my mother.

What you need

Raw rice - 2 cups

Jaggery – 1 cup

Water – 1 ladle

Ghee – 1 tbsp

Cardamom powder – 1/2 tbsp

Cashew, for garnishing – a few

Cooking instructions

Soak the raw rice in water for an hour.

Wash well, drain and dry completely by spreading on a cloth.

Roast the dried rice in a kadai till it turns pink. Allow to cool.

Adding little water at a time to the flour, make a mixture.

Spread the mixture in a shallow vessel and steam in an idly cooker or pressure cooker (for three whistles).

Make a thick syrup (stringy consistency) with water and jaggery. Add cardamom powder and mix the syrup with the flour adding little by little.

Fry the cashewnuts in ghee and garnish.

(Uma Krishnamurthy teaches Carnatic music. She also loves to try out old recipes.)
