Ragi flour, sprouted and roasted flour tastes even better – 1 cup
Jaggery – 0.5-1 cup, depending on your taste
Grated Coconut – 1 cup or according to taste
Cardamom, camphor, clove, saffron powder – 1 pinch (optional)
Water – 1/2 cup
Steamer or Puttu maker.
Add small amounts of water to the ragi flour to make the flour slightly moist. Do not make it too wet. You should be able to run your fingers through the mixture comfortably. Then place the ragi mixture, grated coconut and add the cardamom spice mix in a cheese/khadi cloth. Put the cloth in a steamer and allow the mixture to steam for 5-10 minutes. Check to see if the mixture looks wet and done. Remove from the flame, add jaggery and enjoy!
