How to make Puttu flour

puttu flour

Homemade Puttu flour is always the best one to make soft puttus because of the time we give for each process from soaking the rice,drying,grinding and sieving .And also we use the best quality of rice.
So I always prefer making my own puttu flour and refrigerate for later use.Puttu four is usually made with raw rice ( pachai arisi) but today I have used parboiled rice (puzhungal arisi).You can follow the same method with raw rice too.

SOAKING TIME : 2 HOURS

DRYING TIME : 45 MINS

GRINDING TIME : 15 MINS

SIEVING TIME : 5 MINS

INGREDIENTS

1 kg raw rice or parboiled rice
