Puli Pitha


Coconut-2 cup

Jaggery/sugar- 5-6 tbsp. or according to your taste

Cardamon powder-1/4 tsp. (optional)

Rice flour-1 cup

Salt-1/4 tsp.


Heat a pan in medium heat. Add coconut, jaggery /sugar and cardamom powder and stir.

Cook it for 5 minutes or until it gets a thick consistency. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Boil 1 cup water in a pan with salt (use a heavy bottom pan). Slowly add rice flour and stir continuously. Heat till there is no water left. Remove from the pan and knead well till the dough is soft and smooth and not sticky.

Wet your hand and knead the dough for a minute or so. Roll a big medium thick roti on a rice flour dusted counter top. Use extra flour to roll it out. Cut the dough to make round shapes.

Put coconut mixture in the middle of the dough bowl and seal the edge. Arrange these filled dough’s in a steamer and steam those for about 10 min.

In absence of a steamer place 5-7 puli in a colander. Boil 1 liter water in a deep pan. Put the colander over the pan and cover the colander with a lid and keep it for 10-12 min to steam it well. Take it out and let it cool.
