Step 1

Take rice flour in a flat bottomed vessel.
:- That will be easy to knead the dough.

Step 2

Boil water with enough salt and ghee.

Step 3

When it boils pour into the rice flour and mix well with a spatula since it will be very hot to touch with hand.

Step 4

Go on pouring boiled water and mixing with spatula until the whole flour is nicely loose like a chappathy dough.

Step 5

Let it cool.

Step 6

After it becomes cold knead well with hand like for chappathy until soft and pliable.
:-If it is sticky you can add little more ghee according to your taste.

Step 7

Make balls out of this and
roll out with a chappathy pin to thin pathiries.

Step 8

:-The sides can be made even by cutting with a lid of any steel dubba into a round shape.

Step 9

Heat tava and make pathiries like chappathy.

Step 10

When one side is cooked turn to the other side and cook for sometime.

Step 11

Press the sides of the pathiry so that it starts puffing up
when fully puffed up remove from the kadai.No need of using oil for this.

Step 12

:-This will be very tasty when eaten with chicken curry.

My mom used to make this by adding flour to the boiling water. I for a change tried by pouring boiling water to the flour and it came out well.Without trying how can you say whether it will come out well? For me it has come out well. Shyamala Ravi


When u add water to the rice flour the consistency will not be like chapathi dough(ie how u make string hoppers). U should add the flour to the boiling water and cook on a slow fire.
