Traditional Kai Pathiri in Clay Pot Recipe – Malabar ചട്ടി കൈ പത്തിരി
Traditional Kai Pathiri – Ramadan Iftar special Recipe
Kai in Malayalam language means hand and Pathiri means rice bread. Hence from the word itself kai pathiri means rice bread made with hands.
Kai Pathiri is a traditional breakfast item in Malabar. Kai Pathiri is famous in Malabar as an Iftar special.
The Kai Pathiri is made round with hands and hence experience is required to make the Pathiri in exact shape. My grandmother makes the best Kai Pathiri which is thick still very soft. She usually add fresh coconut milk soon after the Pathiri is cooked. This makes the Pathiri stay soft for long time. But one thing you need to note: if coconut milk is added you cannot keep the Pathiri more than 3 to 4 hours.
Traditionally we cook Kai Pathiri in clay pot called chatti in Malayalam language. This adds a special traditional flavor to Kai Pathiri.
Do try this soft Traditional Kai Pathiri recipe!
