How to make Puttu flour
Buy raw rice specially sold for making puttu also called puttu arisi. Wash and soak rice for 4-5 hours.Wash again and drain the water completely. Spread it on a cloth for 20-25 minutes. Then get it ground in the flour mill when it is slightly wet. Then fry the flour on medium heat until it reaches a sandy consistency. Spread it to cool and then store in an airtight container. This is puttu mavu/puttu rice flour.
Take 2 cups of puttu flour in a bowl. Add a little salt.
Add water little at the time and mix well with your finger tips.When you take a handful of flour and press it between your fist, it should hold its shape, when you press it again a little harder, it should crumble. That is the right consistency.
