Pathiri is a traditional and authentic South Indian bred and very popular in the Malabar region of Kerala.it is a perfect gluten free,vegan and zero oil rice bread usually serving with curry or coconut milk. Making pathiri is very easy, you need only three ingredients,tightly roasted rice flour,water and salt. Pathiri is traditionally making in pathiri chatty or oadu.
Malabar is a land of pathiris,ari pathiri,chattipathiri,aduku pathiri.kai pathiri nei pathiri,kunchi pathiri….. many variety’s. For us pathiri is a part of our every day break fast .Usually every home people storing more than 5 kg powder always, and making this every morning for breakfast,some times for dinner and no doubt an inevitable item in special occasions like salkaram (welcome party) and Ramdan
OK lets cook the traditional mophla delicacy, for that we need tightly roasted fine rice powder(it is must),water and salt.You can use store bought powder or home made rice powder,I suggest eastern pathiri podi.
Three things you should be very careful while making pathiri,the first thing is the proportion of water and flour,second is kneading,Me and my friend Najeeba together made this, she knead the dough approximately 10-15 minutes to get the exact consistency.
