Pathiri / Nice Ari Pathiri



Pathiri, Kerala_Pathiri , Ari_pathiri 


                    It was a four day tour. Goa beaches hugged us with a delicate and soothing breeze and undoubtedly it was a warm welcome. We explored all the famous spots here especially the beaches, temples, churches, Spice garden and yes the Dolphins that jumped near our boat!

Goa-beach
Goa-Holidays


              Goa has many beaches and the Baga beach was the first we thought of checking out. The sun was almost halfway up in the sky when our bare foot touched the sands. We got carried away by the beauty of the beach sparkling out its crystal lights in the sun. The whistling of the breeze and the sound of  the waves rushing to reach the shore took me to another world of music. "Papa !" I got back to the present. It was my 15 month old daughter. Her tiny index finger was pointed out to the blue beach. It was her first time seeing a beach closer and she was completely elated. Her wide smile pushed up into her eyes and they became smaller. We let her small feet touch the silvery blue water as it swept the shore. She giggled uncontrollably when the cool water tickled her feet and that made me and my husband happy like the red cherry on the cake. And then lastly we waited for the ultimate scenic beauty. The sky prepared with vibrant colours to bring down the curtain. It had waves of orange, red and yellow shades fading out into blue and purple. And finally, the orange sun came down quite humbly and  gently kissed the wide horizon. That was surely the perfect Start for our holidays.

                Though I enjoyed my holidays in Goa and hometown Kerala, I was missing my blog very badly. Am still hung in that mood and not started with any fresh recipes. So I went back to my old recipes I had in my drafts and decided to post it down today.. Rice Pathiri which is the traditional and common malabari breakfast dish is usually served with non vegetarian curry and coconut milk. Mostly Muslims have them for dinner during Ramdan after they break their fasting.
                   While making Pathiri we must use the perfect rice flour (roasted ) that is available in stores. Unlike other rice flour dishes, Pathiri requires the best quality rice flour else, they wont be soft and  also wont puff up. I usually use Nirapara Pathiri podi / Ari podi






Ingredients:
  1. Rice flour : 1 cup 
  2. Water : 1 cup
  3. Salt : to taste

Method :
  1. Heat water in a large pan with salt in it
  2. When the water starts boiling add rice flour slowly into it and mix with a wooden ladle vigorously so that rice flour gets cooked. The mixture should not be loose as we require a dough as in chappathi. Cover with a lid 
  3. Take out the mixture onto a flat plate. It will be hot so wait for a while and start kneading with your hands when its heat is slightly reduced. Form a dough with no lumps. 
  4. Make half lemon sized balls from it and roll it thinly like we do for chappathis. Your Pathiri should be 5 inch in diameter.
  5. Heat a heavy bottom thawa  (you can use even fry pan if not available ) and put one over it. Flip it after 2 min . Now wait for 3-4 min  ( you may see small puffs now) and flip again. This stage it will puff completely. Pressing lightly on it using ladle or cloth will help in puffing completely.
  6. Take it out and continue same procedure with the remaining dough 
  7. Serve for breakfast or dinner with spicy Chicken Curry

Note :
  • When you get a fully puffed pathiri you can say your pathiri has come out well.. Some might not puff completely but no need of worrying about that. It will taste good still.
  • Rub off the thawa with a cloth to remove the brown powder that forms while making pathiri 
  • Also remove excess rice powder from pathiri before placing on thawa for frying
