Roast and sieve the flour well. Grate the coconut. Place the flour in a
bowl and add the salt. Slowly pour in the hot water, mixing with your
fingers as you do so until it resembles bread crumbs. Add the grated
coconut and mix well in. Place the mixture in the pittu mould and place
over a pan of boiling water until steam emerges from the top of the pittu
mould. Cover with half a coconut shell and steam for a further 5 minutes or
until done.

Note: If a pittu mould is not available, mould dough into loaf shape, wrap
in muslin and steam for about 15 minutes.
