Rice Flour/Puttupodi : 2 cups

Fresh grated coconut :1 cup

Shallots/Pearl onions :5

Jeera/Cumin :1/2 teaspoon

Fennel seeds :1 teaspoon

Water :2 cup

Salt to taste


  • Boil water add salt and simmer heat, slowly add rice flour/puttupodi and combine well with a spoon, remove from the heat close with a lid and keep it aside.
  • In a blender add coconut,cumin,fennel seeds and shallots and pulse it for one time. When it is still warm, but manageable to knead, knead well with hands to fine dough without adding water.
  • Add the ground mixture and mix well. Smear the fingers and palm with oil to avoid the dough sticking to the hand and make small balls of the dough.
  • Roll it into thick discs(like thick pooris) using a rolling pin. Dust with rice flour to help in rolling out. To make exact round shape,cut the edges with round cutter or a lid and make them in perfect shape.
  • Place tawa on medium flame,when it hot,slide pathiri into the hot oil after sometimes it will float on top and puff up.As soon as it puffs up, flip it over and fry both sides until golden and crispy.
  • Serve with chicken curry or any curries.
