Mix salt in water and sprinke water little by little to the rice flour and mix it throughly. The rice flour should be wet enough, keep stirring it with your fingers as it should remain in a powdered form and do not mould it in to a dough.

If you are using a puttu maker, then add 1 ½ cup of water in the puttu pot and bring it to boil.

Steam cook it for 4-5 minutes.

Remove the cylinder, use a spatula to push out the puttu to a plate.

Tip: To prepare Wheat puttu the same procedure is followed, use wheat flour instead of rice.
