- Jack-fruit flesh - 10 pieces (if you dont have fresh jackfruit you can substitute with canned variety, even though fresh is best)
- Rice flour/Puttu podi - 1 cup
- salt - to taste
- Grated coconut - 1/2 cup
- sugar - 1tsp
- water - as needed
Cut the jack fruit into small pieces and mix it with the sugar and grated coconut and keep aside.
Mix the rice flour with salt to taste.
Sprinkle water into the rice flour and mix well without forming lumps (Start with 1/4'th cup water) Add more water as required.
If you grab a handful of flour and squeeze with your hand it should hold shape and if you press it again it should crumble - that is the consistency you want the flour to be in once you have added water. There is no exact measurement for rice flour to water ratio since each brand of flour would need a different amount of water depending on how it has been fried etc.
Proceed to make puttu - fill the puttu pot half the way with water and set to heat.
Add a layer of puttu powder followed by the jack fruit mix into the puttu maker, alternate the layers until it is filled.
Steam this for 10 minutes.Serve hot.
