RAGI -RICE FLOUR PITTU/PUTTU( 2 variations)


Ragi/ finger millet /nachni,kurakkan is a gluten

free whole grain,which aids in weight loss and

good for diabetic patients.

If I had to make pittu, it was rice flour ( red/

white) or wheat /all purpose flour ( roasted).

Recently only,I knew you could make ragi pittu

tasty like other pittu.

The trick is that you have to mix rice flour with

the ragi flour to get a good taste,not failing lots

of coconut too.I love to have with coconut

milk,banana,and sugar,but my family likes it

with channa ( chickpea curry ).

Today I tried two versions of ragi pittu .One

with coconut ,and the other with a little

vegetables .

The feedback stars were more for the vegetable

pittu 😋.

I want to also state that Kerala cuisine,has the

unique meat pittu,especially made with beef.

( will post soon)

So here’s to both the versions

INGREDIENTS

1 cup ragi flour

1/2 cup rice flour ( red or white)

Salt

2 cups grated coconut

Water

METHOD

Mix the ragi,rice flour,salt and 1/2 cup coconut.

Sprinkle water little by little and mix with the

tip of your fingers .

The mixture should be crumbly ,and if you

hold a portion with your fingers it should hold

lightly .

If you have the stainless steel cylindrical pittu

steamer, or the bamboo pittu maker you will

get a neat roll .

You could also tie up in a muslin cloth,and

steam for 15- 20 minutes.

Use the remaining coconut to create portions.

Starting with coconut,and ending with coconut

Now to the vegetable pittu

1 carrot ,a small leek or spring onions ,2-3

beans chopped fine,1/2 tsp ginger- garlic

chopped ,1 green chilli chopped,1 tsp chilli

powder or chilli flakes,1/4 tsp garam masala

powder ,salt to taste,1 tsp oil / ghee

Method

Mix all these together ,and layer vegetables and

pittu mix ,and steam till done .
