Millet flour steamed meal (puttu/ pittu)

1 cup millet flour
1/4 cup coconut grated
2 to 3 tbsp water
1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt to taste

Dry roast the ground millet flour.  Add the grated coconut, salt and sprinkle water 1 tbsp or less at a time.  Using the finger, crumble the mixture.  
Don't use a lot of water, the mixture should be a crumble it should not be too wet or sticky.
Heat a pan that can attach a steamer with 1 cup of boiling water.  When the water is boiling and the steamer becomes hot, put the mixture over the steamer and steam for 2 to 3 minutes.  
Don't steam for a long time as the pittu will harden.
Serve this pittu or puttu with curry, sambal or jaggery.
This quantity will serve 1 to 2 people.

  8. Thank you for your kind comment on my asparagus post. And please don't be offended by the Food on Friday edition tomorrow being on pork dishes. This weeks one was on Berries and Currants and if you had any recipe you wanted to link up to that - or any of the other previous Food on Fridays - please just go ahead. Each Wednesday I'll be showcasing a number of links from previous Food on Fridays - like i did with asparagus today.

    Cheers
