   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.
