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.
