Pathiri Recipe

Pathiri Recipe
by : Lakshmi Ajith
Rice flour - 2 cups
Water - 2 cups 
Salt - as needed
cumin seeds – ½ tsp
Coconut Oil - 2 tbsp
In a vessel, boil 2 cups of water. Add enough salt, cumin seeds and 2 cups of rice flour slowly. Cover and cook on low flame for just 1 to 2 minutes. Switch off the flame. Using a wooden spatula or spoon mix it thoroughly and Cover it for 20 minutes. Knead the dough until it becomes uniformly smooth. Pathiri will be softer if you knead when the dough is still hot. Roll out small portions of the dough into lime sized ball. Using a pathiri press / chappathi press flatten each ball into thin pathiri. You can apply some oil to both sides of the pathiri press to prevent sticking. Heat a non-stick tawa and when it become hot, lower to medium flame and place each pathiri on it. Flip over after 10-15 seconds and press on the center with back of a flat spoon and wait till it puffs up. Wait for another 30 seconds. You should flip the pathiris when the steam is coming from it. Do not allow the pathiris to get brown. It should be white in color.
