Malabar Rice Pathiri | Rice Pancakes

A

Malabar Rice Pathiri is an Indian style flat bread quite popular in Malabar region and is prepared using 3 basic ingredients – rice flour, luke warm water and cooking oil. The rice flour mixture with required salt is cooked well until it retains a dough like consistency. The cooled rice dough is plucked out into soft balls, rolled out into discs and cooked on a non-stick tawa. Malabar Rice Pathiri makes one of the best breakfast or dinner choices along with a vegetarian or non veg side dish. These pathiris are delicate, tasty and soft to touch. Those who are bored of the usual idli dosa dishes can give a try and you will love the variation. The uniqueness of these Rice Pancakes is that you do not require any fermenting agents like yeast and baking powder. You can be well assured that Malabar Rice Pathiri accompanied with a tasty side dish is wholesome, balanced and very good for your tummy.

Malabar Rice Pathiri is a part of the local cuisine prevalent among the Mappilas residing in Malabar region of Kerala. These are thin rice rotis served with a spicy gravy. Once these rice rotis are rolled out and stacked, you can either cook and serve it hot or you can cover and store in refrigerator for next use. But as per my personal opinion it is always better to cook fresh and serve. There are many variants of pathiri available these days – Irachi Pathiri, Chatti Pathiri, Orotty etc. Malabar Rice Pathiri is the basic dish, the simplest one. A vital point, it requires some expertise to achieve that softness for the dough while preparing Rice Pancakes. But do not get upset, you will succeed.
