1 cup steamed or roasted Atta flour
1 cup steamed all purpose flour
3/4 cup grated coconut
salt to taste
Enough hot water to prepare dough (roughly about 1/2 to 3/4 cup)

Mix both steamed Atta and all purpose flour with salt to taste. Gradually add enough hot water (not boiling water) and make it into a thick door. Put the door little by little into a food processor so that the dough will break into small pieces like pebbles. This could be done even with your fingers if you do not have a food processor.

Put the pebbled dough about 1/4 cup into a bamboo or stainless steal steamer which looks like a cylinder with a diameter of 3 inches. Then add about 1 tablespoon of grated coconut.

Repeat this till the steamer comes upto the top. Cover the mouth of the steamer and steam till it is well done. This will take only a few minutes. When it is done you could see steam or smoke coming through the pittu.

Another variation is you could add the grated coconut to the dough before you put it in the food processor. You can also steam it in a regular steamer or bamboo basket.
Accompaniments for pittu are either fish or any meat curry or katta sambol with thick plain coconut milk. Enjoy!!!
