Coconut pittu

This is easy and soft pittu. Using cooked rice makes the pittu soft.

1 cup coconut
1 1/2 cup steamed flour
1 cup cooked rice
1 tsp salt

Mix all the ingredients and add a tbsp of water at a time and make a crumble soft texture. Put into a pittu steamer and steam for 2 minutes, when the steam comes in a minute cover and cook for a minute then take it out.
Pittu can be accompanied with gravy, dal curry and maldive fish sambal for savoury. For sweet pittu eat with treacle, banana, mango, coconut milk or sugar.
Another variation is to use red or white rice flour, coconut, salt with water and steam.
If there is no steamer use a rice cooker steamer or keep some water in a pan and steam in a steamer.

This recipe goes to scrumptious delights from leftovers event.
