Kaipathiri


The name Kaipathiri is because this roti is prepared by hand(Kai).

Ingredients
Rice powder 1 glass
Water 1 glass
Small onion 3 chopped
Coconut grated ½ cup
Cumin seeds ½ tsp
Salt



How to prepare
Boil water with salt, coconut, chopped small onions and cumin seeds. When boils, reduce the flame, slowly put the rice powder into this and stir. Stir well for few seconds. Remove from fire, pour the contents into a saucer. Make dough by kneading it well.

Make balls of big size. Take a banana leaf and place the ball on it. Press with palm(with all fingers) then turn. Repeat this till the pathiri gets enough size. Then place it on a hot griddle / tawa and cook them turning occasionally. Unlike nice pathiris , this might have brown spots and marks, this is thick and tastes good even without curries. When one pathiri is done, soon dip it in coconut milk and transfer into another plate.

See the instructions for making pathiri.

  6. Actually though I am a Keralite, I have to say I don't know much about Kerala-style preparations since I've never lived in Kerala at all. Your blog is teaching me a lot of things.

  14. Honestly, i can't wait to make this one. Looks very rustic and appealing, i am a huge fan of all sorts of pathiris. I may have to use a parchment paper or something to shape these as i always have a hard time finding banana leaves.Thank you.

  19. hi seena,
    i made kai pathiri but it came a little hard..what should i do abt this. oru pad kozhachu noki..

  20. Saju,
    If you have kneaded much , that won't be the reason for the hard pathiris. It depends on the quality of rice which is used to make powder.
    Mom told to dip the pathiris in coconut milk soon when they are cooked. ie, when one pathiri is done, dip it in the coconut milk, take out and keep covered in other plate. Try it.. :)
    All the best!

  21. ya, my mom also told me that it might be coz of the powder. i buy my rce powder from an indian store here in US.mom says her rice powder and all are roasted. maybe i too should do that. will also try ur mom's coconut milk method.Give her my thanks and my salaam.
