  3. Let the cloth absorb the mositure. After about 30 minutes, grind the rice coarsely.
  4. Dry roast on a low flame till the rice flour turns to light brown in colour.
  5. Cool the rice flour. Add turmeric powder and salt to the rice flour. Mix them together.
  6. Sprinkle water a little by little till you are able to hold the flour and at the same time it should crumble. (Take care in this step. Excess water will spoil the puttu)
