Sweet Puttu..!

Ingredients: Rice flour(with small rough crystals) -2 cups Grated coconut - 1 cup Water -1/2 cup Salt - a pinch Sugar - 1 cup Cashews- 6 Cardomom powder
Method: Add salt and approximately 3 table spoons of grated coconut into the flour and mix well. Add water little by little to the rice flour and mix it. The flour should be wet enough for steaming, but we have to be careful when you add water to the flour. The consistency has got to be right. It should not become too watery. Puttu has to be made in a Puttu maker or you can steam it using idli tray in the idly cooker. Steam for 2-3 minutes, take out .keep it for few minutes.Let the puttu gets cool.Now add sugar powder and cardomom.Decorate with cashews. Puttu can be served with Plantains.
