Rice flour - 2cups
Water - 2 cups
Salt to taste
.Boil water with salt.Add rice flour to this and lower the heat.Stir the flour with a spoon till it is well mixed.Remove from fire and keep it covered for 5 minutes.Remove it to a wide plate for kneading.
.Knead it well to a big dough ball before the mixture is cooled completely.If you are feeling that water is not completely mixed with flour, you could wet your hands and do it.Make equal sized balls of it.(size of a lemon).Each ball makes each pathiri.
.Take each ball and dip it in dry rice flour.Sprinkle some rice flour on a dry rough surface.Now place each ball on the surface and roll it out into a thin round using a rolling pin.If you didnt get round shape, dont worry trim the edges using any round shaped lid.
. Heat tawa or griddle.Spinkle some water and see whether the water is evaporating quickly.If so its ready to put pathiri.Cook the Pathiri by turning both sides till it puffs.Remove from fire.
