Pathiri | Ari Pathiri is a gluten free, healthy ,pancakes made out of rice flour. It’s a most popular recipe from Malabar region. Pathri is very similar to Akki Roti from Karnataka but the only difference lies in dry roasting the rice flour before making roti dough . A fine dry roasted rice flour is mixed with piping hot water , kneaded to a smooth dough and rolled to a super thin roti. It’s a must served dish with a spicy meat curry during Iftar/ religious celebrations in Malabar region.

Many are under the misconception that eating rice at night , makes them to put on weight. It’s such a Myth . Truth is , it’s actually so light and one tends to eat more , because of which one may gain weight. Also most of people from young and mid generations have totally changed their diet by replacing rice with wheat flour roti at night . Just to get that Diet feeling and also they are under a impression that they will not put on weight if rice is replaced by Wheat flour roti šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚ , which is absolutely FALSE . Nothing is as good as simple rice and dal for dinners for Indians. Also it’s easy to digest, light on stomach and never makes you bloated , all you need is portion control while eating rice.
