4 from 1 vote

Already I shared few ragi/finger millet recipes – Ragi upma, Ragi Porridge, Ragi semiya (vermicelli) upma followed by this, comes ragi puttu / ragi steamed cake. A diabetic friendly recipe, when it’s served without sugar. I just prepared it for my hubby, but lucky my kids loved them with sugar. I would gladly say a new dish to my breakfast menu. Let us move on to the recipe…

  • Ragi Flour / Finger Millet Flour – 1 ½ cup
  • Grated coconut – ½ cup
  • Salt 1 tsp


  • Take ragi flour/finger millet flour in a wide mouth bowl or a plate. Make well in the centre of the flour.
  • Pour in water little by little and start mixing it with your fingers, until it reaches the correct consistency (you should be able to make a ball and when you press the ball it should broken into crumbs).
  • Add in the grated coconut to the flour and continue mixing it.
  • Place it in a steamer. (I have used a baby steamer, you can also steam it in idly steamer or can steam in a microwave steamer).
  • After steaming, transfer the puttu to a plate and transfer it to a bowl. Serve hot with sugar or chutney.
