Cheera pathiri/kerala spinach pathiri for veggies


Ingredients:For pathiri
Rice powder roasted-1 glass
Water - 1 glass
Salt to taste
Oil-1 tsp

For the masala
Cheera - 2 handful of leaves
Grated coconut - 1/2 handful
Onion - 3
Cloves of garlic - 2
Green chilly cut into small pieces - 2 nos
Curry leaves - 2 twigs
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Oil to roast
Salt to taste



Preparation:
        In a pan pour some oil now put mustard seeds and allow it to splutter.Then add the chopped curry leaves and then add onions and salt.saute for sometimes till it becomes soft and translucent.Add garlic and chilly and saute for few minutes until onion is cooked very well.add the chopped cheera and coconut,cover and cook on very low flame until the flavour is infused well for about 8-10 minutes.        
      Boil water.Add enough salt and 1 tsp of oil.Slowly add rice powder stirring continuously.Switch of the stove and pour the content into a big plate.Wait till it reach a warm condition.Then knead it and make dough.The softness depends on how well u knead it.Take pieces from the dough as we do for chappathis.Make ball and press it using the chappathi press.Keep this pathiri on a piece of banana leaf.Add some masala in the centre leaving a little space from the circumference.Now make another pathiri of same size,cover the masala filled pathiri with this covering the masalas completely.Slowly press the edges using the fork to seal all the masala in.Carefully lift the banana leaf and place it in a steamer.Repeat the same process until all the masalas and the rice flour are used up.Steam cook for about 10-12 minutes minutes or until the pathiri is firm.

Love,
Roshu
