Poricha pathri

Traditional Kozhikoden Thattukada Style Pathris

This is a traditional Kozhikode recipe of Rice flour pooris. This tastes like the authentic pathri which you get in tea shops in the Malabar area especially at Kozhikode.

I am thankful to Hafeela Thaju, my WhatsApp friend from Adukala Group for sharing the recipe.

The speciality of the pathri is that , it tastes great without curry . It can be had plain even with a glass of tea. Perfect for Ramadan.
