    I love puttu. But I don’t have access to a puttu vessel. Any suggestions on that front?

    “Use Puttu maker or steam it in pressure cooker in a container.”

    :::>> How much water do I use in the pressure cooker to steam it, without a puttu vessel?

    I make puttu out of Ragi flour and rava. Never tried wheat flour. Next time have to try this out. Thanks for this recipe

    Have you heard of “Chiratta Puttu”? It is made just like “puttu”, but using coconut shell instead of puttu vessel. Coconut shell shaped vessel is also available in the market, with which it is more easier, all you have to do is place it above the pressure cooker (where the whistle is placed).
