Roasted rice powder - 1 glass
Water - 1 glass
Oil - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Boil water in a pan.Add enough salt and 1 tsp of oil.Slowly add rice powder stirring continuously.Now switch off the stove and pour the whole content into a big saucer kinda plate.Allow it to reach a warm condition.Then knead the content and make dough.A well kneaded dough results in soft and puffy pathiris.Apply oil on the palms to avoid stickiness.
Now take pieces from this dough,as we do for chappathis.Make balls and press it between palms.Dust the board using rice powder.Roll the flattened balls on a wooden board using the chappathi roller until the pathiri is thin and round.Now cut the edges using a lid.
Place a pan on medium flame.When the pan is hot,place pathiri.Now you can notice the steam passes through it within a few seconds.Turn the pathiri.Now wait for a little longer time.Make sure pathiri should not turn brown.Now turn again and you can see the pathiri puffs up.Remove from the pan.
Use coconut milk while serving the pathiri to make it soft.
U can roll and keep the pathiris in an air tight container in the refrigerator,Make the pathiris as and when required.U can store the rolled pathiris for 2-3 days.
