Pathiri/Pathil/Orooty z our muslim traditional recipe... !


Pathiri Podi /Roasted Rice flour : 2 cups 
Water : 2  cups
Salt to taste

Method :-

  • Boil the water +salt in a  heavy bottom pan. 
  • Wen its starts boiling--slowly add  the roasted rice powder /pathiri podi and  stir continuously over low heat...stir well...
  •  Cover this and keep on a slow fire for 10 seconds. Switch off the stove. 
  •  As the dough will be very hot at this point, knead the dough with metal spoon. Let it reach a warm condition to knead with hands.
  • You have to knead the dough when it is warm. Knead the dough thoroughly using both hands for about 5 minutes,no need to add extra water.....knead  till the dough is no longer sticky.
  • The key to soft pathiri is to keep kneading until the dough is less sticky 
  • Don't add water or rice powder again. If needed, wet hands or apply a little coconut oil on palms. Any water or any flour added at this point will change the texture of the pathiri.

  • Divide the dough into small lemon sized balls.
  • Then Dust the rolling board and rolling pin using the same rice powder used for making pathiri dough.
  • Roll the balls using chapathi roller until you get thin round roti/pathiri. 
  •  Keep a tawa on medium flame and heat it.  Low flame and extra high flame will not make pathiris good and will end up in crispy pathiris.)
  •  Keep the pathiri on it, rotating in between,  &  when the pathiri starts bubbling ,turn it upside down. 
  •  Slightly press it using the back side of a spoon, this will help it to rise up as one single bubble. This way the pathiri will be so soft,
  •  wait for another 30 seconds so that even this side is done well and remove from the tawa. 
  • After one pathiri is done, and before putting the next pathiri, clean the brown powder on the thava with a dry cloth.
  • Optionally these pathiri can be served with cocnut milk & mutton/chicken or anyother spicy curry
