Malabar Rice Pathiri

This is a Norhtern Kerala dish specially more popular among muslims. It is a pancake made of rice flour. This is a very tasty and easy to make receipe which is usually taken with coconut chicken curry. Pathiri is regularly served during Iftar in the muslim fasting month of Ramdaan. I have already given the recipe of Roti Pathiri which can be found here.

Rice flour – 1cup
Water – 1cup
Salt – to taste

How to prepare
=►Boil one cup of water with enough salt.
=►When it boils well, slowly add rice flour little by little.
=►Stir it continuously and switch off the flame.
=►Close tightly with a lid and leave it for 10 min.
=►Pour the mixture into a big vessel for kneading.
=►Knead it(atleast 5min) and make a soft dough.
=►Taste and puffness of pathiri depends on how soft is the dough.
=►Make small balls and press it on wooden board.
=►Put little bit rice flour on wooden board for avoid sticking.
=►Press it until you get thin round pathiri (no need to use oil).
=►If u want correct round shape use round cutter or lid.
=►Heat tawa or non stick pan on medium flame and place pathiri on that.
=►Cook both sides well. Pathiri is ready to be served with chicken curry. It goes well with fish curry and egg curry.
