Neriya Pathiri & Egg curry with coconut..

Neriya Pathiri or rice aata roti is one of the Malabari specialities.. this is my next entry for the Roti Mela

This is a very common and popular type of roti in Kerala apart from the Gotham Pathiri.. (do check my next post for that recipe!)

This is how you make it..

  • 1 cup rice flour roasted
  • 1cup water
  • 1/4 tsp coconut oil
  • salt to taste
Boil the water with coconut oil and salt in a large vessel.

When it is boiled add the rice flour. Keep on adding small amounts

Let the water boil for 1 minute

After that mix the water and the flour.

Turn off the stove and close the vessel for sometime.

When it is half cooled knead the flour.

Make small balls and roll into rotis with a Pathiri press.

Here is a pic of the pathiri press!

Heat up a tava or a griddle. When its hot place a pathiri on it. After sometime turn it to the other side.. You can see small bubbles coming out. Turn it to the other side once more. Also keep on pressing with a flat spoon.

Today i made egg curry with coconut to accompany it.
