well, the recipe for malbar rice pathiri looks very easy and simple, but it can be complicated if not made properly. basically, this is my third attempt for this recipe and i was missing with the consistency and smoothness. in other words, the rice flour has to be mixed well till it reaches a smooth consistency. note that, the dough for this roti is prepared differently as compared to any other wheat or plain flour based roti. the rice flour has to be mixed to a boiling water and stirred continuously. later it has to be rested for 5 minutes, which is followed by kneading when it is still warm. typically it is done via hand, but it can also be done via metal or wooden spoon.

furthermore, i would like to add some tips, suggestions and recommendations for this ari pathiri recipe. firstly, there are 2 variants of rice flour available, i.e fine and coarse rice flour. and i would heavily recommend using fine flour for this recipe which yields better results. secondly, while kneading the dough make sure to grease hands with coconut oil to prevent from sticking. also, if the dough turns dry, sprinkle only hot water and never use cold water as the dough need to be warm to make soft pathiri. lastly, clean the tawa every single time after cooking pathri to get white and clean malabar rice roti.
