How to make Vivatta Whole Wheat Flour Puttu Recipe
To begin making Vivatta Whole Wheat Flour Puttu Recipe, dry roast Vivatta Premium Chakki Atta on low flame until the flour releases a pleasant aroma. Take off the heat before the flour starts browning.
Drain all the water from steamed rice and grind it in a mixer grinder into a crumby mixture. Then add roasted Vivatta whole wheat flour and pulse for less than half a minute. Do not over blend it. The end result of this grinding should be a crumbly well-mixed mixture of soaked rice and Vivatta whole wheat flour.
Put the crumbly flour to a wide mixing bowl. Add little salt, sugar, and a tablespoon of grated coconut to the flour mix.
Boil enough water in a pressure cooker (without the weight). In a puttu maker, add a thin layer of freshly grated coconut, top it with wheat-rice flour mix. If you are using the long cylindrical puttu maker, add 2 to 3 layers of grated coconut and flour mix. Cover the puttu maker with lid.
Place the puttu maker on top of the cooker (sits on the hole where you put the weight). Steam for about 5 to 10 minutes until cooked. Once cooked, carefully slide Vivatta Whole Wheat Flour Puttus from the puttu maker and serve hot with kadala curry (channa curry) and banana.
