 Tips and variations

  • You may take the mixture off the flame when it is still soft. This will keep for a couple of days. It is a personal choice if you want to keep it soft or cook longer. Both taste good.
Preparing rice flour for tambittu
  1. Wash raw rice. Put it on a colander to drain.
  2. Spread rice on a clean towel for 3-4 hours and then grind it in the mixer/blender/grinder to very fine powder. If you are preparing rice flour in large quantity, say a kilo or more, you may get it ground in a nearby flourmill. This is possible if you are in India.
  3. Sieve and then spread on a plate to dry completely. If the flour is not completely dry, it may become moldy and will spoil in a few days.
  4. Then store in an airtight container.
  5. This rice flour or powder can be used for making tambittu as well as modak for ganapati bappa.
