Take a cup of warm water and add salt to it. Sprinkle this water little by little over the white rice flour and mix. As shown on picture 2, keep mixing and add little by little water. If any lumps are formed, don’t worry as you can break it with your hands. When you hold the mix in your hand it should hold to form a ball but it should crumble back easily as shown in picture 3.
Now your mix is ready. Add some amount of grated coconut firstly in the puttu maker and then some rice flour followed by coconut and again rice flour till it reaches the edge of the puttu maker. Steam it for about 5 minutes on high flame and then 6-8 minutes on low flame.
