Malabar Rice Pathiri Dish In Kerala

The colorful selection of mouthwatering delights are indeed a speciality of Muslim Cuisine.The cuisine of Kerala Muslims alias ‘Mappila Cuisine' is also well known for its delicate blend of spiciness and subtle mix of ingredients.

Traditional Mappila cuisine is spicy and wholesome and has a lot in common with other foods of Kerala with the base as rice.

Malabar Pathiri is a special Mappila bread prepared with rice flour.They make different varieties of pathiri like steam cooked Meen Pathiri(made of Fish),shallow fried Kannan Pathiri (shaped as eye),Adukku Pathiri(made with layered rice& egg) ,Egg Dipped Pathiri,Meat Pathiri,Coconut Pathiri....and many more.Pathiri in all its dry varieties can be tried out as perfect accompaniments to the dense coloured meat preparations.

The difference between various pathiris comes from the rice that they are ground from.Biriyani Rice & Ponni rice are mostly use for preparing Pathiri's in Kerala.
As per the request of our friend Pol,i've tried this Plain Rice Pathiri last week.This was the best Pathiri i've ever made.

Thanks Pol,for reminding me about this,and we had a really different and enjoyable dinner-Pathiri & Mutton Masala.Again this is a special Pathiri recipe from Vanitha...

Rice Flour -2 cups(I used normal ‘Swad' rice flour available to us from Indian Groceries)
Water - 2 cups
Salt - to taste
For Grinding:-
Grated coconut -1 cup
Shallots - 5
Jeera - 1 tsp

(These grinding ingredients are optional.In Traditional plain pathiri recipe('Neriya Pathiri' in Malabar),they don't normally add these ground coconut mixture.I got this special recipe from Vanitha and I loved that coconut flavour in Pathiri,rather than the plain one.)


Heat water and salt in a vessel.Stir in the grounded mixture when it starts to boil.When it boils well,put the rice flour into it.Close the lid tightly and simmer it for few minutes.Open the lid and mix the flour well with a spoon.

Remove the vessel from fire and allow the content to cool. Knead it to a fine dough using hand without adding water.(Note:-This kneading part has to be done before the flour is completely cooled.)
