Red Puttu Rice Powder how to use
Its high fiber content and lack of refined carbs and sugars makes it perfect for healthy living. The grains were milled at home in stone ‘chakkis’ in those days. We can enjoy the benefit of escaping from that arduous task and yet enjoy the fruits by simply buying it here. The red rice or ‘Chemba puttu’ is made of coarsely ground rice that has been washed, soaked and dried before being coarsely ground. Coconuts used were freshly grated. The cakes were earlier cooked in coconut shells but now you can uses steel moulds to achieve the same effect.
After adding a pinch of salt to the flour, water is added bit by bit with a tablespoon while constantly rubbing the flour between the fingers. When you feel that further adding would make the rice powder clump, stop adding water. The texture should be like wet sand when you are done with rubbing, which just takes about 2-3 minutes; the first-timer shouldn’t think it’s a lot of work, as it really isn’t. Add about a teaspoon of freshly grated coconut into the base of the mould before packing in the moistened powder. Add another teaspoon of the coconut to top it off, cover and you are ready to start steaming. Once steam starts emitting from the holes in the moulds cover, leave it for a couple of minutes before switching off the fire. Unmould it after a minute of cooling and your rice cake is ready to be served.
