To the best of my knowledge, puttu is steamed and not pressure cooked. How do you get the cylindrical shape?

As you said, it is mostly steam cooked but for this recipe it has to be pressure cooked. However you can also steam cook if preferred.
To get the cylindrical shape, use your palms to shape them or put them in a puttu maker if you have one.
