Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Boil 2 cups of water with salt in a thick bottom sauce pan.
  2. when the water boils reduce the flame,then add the rice flour and mix it evenly with a laddle.
  3. switch off the stove,cover with a lid and keep aside for 2 to 3 minutes,then remove the lid.let it cool slightly.stir well.
  4. wet your hands and knead the warm dough thoroughly,(wet your hands in between),its better to knead the warm dough for getting soft pathiris. Kneading is the most important part so do it in a single stretch until the dough become soft and less sticky
  5. Then make small lemon size balls from the kneaded dough.I made 35 balls from 2 cups of flour.
  6. By using a pathiri/chapati press flatten each balls in to small pathiris(apply little oil to both sides of the press to prevent sticking,If you don’t have a press skip this step and directly roll out the balls with chapati roller)
  7. sprinkle rice flour and roll out(center to outwards) the pressed balls in to thin pathiris.
  8. Heat a flat nonstick pan, when it become very hot reduce the flame to medium and place pathiri on it.after few seconds turn it over,wait for few more seconds till you see some bubbles are appearing,then again turn it and slightly press the center with a laddle.
  9. or place the pathiri to the hot thawa wait for 10-15 seconds then flip over it and cook till it puffs up.serve with your favorite curry.
  10. Serve with your favorite curry
