Kambu Puttu - Pearl Millet Puttu - Healthy snack - Millet recipes

I am a big fan of millets. I wanted to try this puttu for quite some time. After I started to cook with millets my mum also try to make millet. She is having diabetes and her doctor has advised to take more millet base recipes. So she started to stock more millets. She got good Pearl millets and I asked her to make flour. She had done it before I have India. So I don't have pics. But just fry till nice aroma released and grind to powder

Pearl Millet powder / Kambu mavvu - 2 cups
Grated Coconut - 4 tablespoons
Cardamom - 1/4 teaspoon
Roasted Sesame seeds - 1 teaspoon
