  • Add grated beetroot and salt into the flour.Pour some water and mix with fingers so that it look like bread crumbs.Keep aside.
  • Continue the step above with carrot and rice flour.
  • Put a table spoon of shredded coconut in the 'puttukutty'.Second layer with beetroot mixture and sprinkle some grated coconut.Third layer with white puttu mixture and top with carrot mixture.
  • Steam it for 5 mins and serve hot with the side dish of your choice.
