Thenga Pathiri(Using Leftover Rice)

Thenga Pathiri(Using Leftover Rice)

When I entered to kitchen in morning today, I noticed some leftover rice that from yesterdays. Then I got a thought to remake it into another one. At last I came up with the remix of one of the Malabar dish pathiri with some extra tasty magic in it. Here it is! Thenga pathiri/coconut pathiri using leftover rice! This Thenga pathiri is a best breakfast item with or without any side dishes. Thenga pathiri has the essence of the coconut and other ingredients which will make it so irresistible even for children.

[ingredients title=”Ingredients”]

  • Leftover cooked Rice – 2 Cup
  • Rice Flour – 1/2 Cup
  • Grated Coconut – 1 Cup
  • Small Onion/Shallots – 4 nos
  • Cumin Seeds(Jeerakam) – 1 tspn
  • Salt as required
  • Oil


[directions title=”Directions”]

  1. Grind the cooked rice for some minutes(No need to make it a smooth paste).
  2. Grind coconut with cumin seeds and small onions.
  3. Mix the grounded cooked rice with rice flour and grounded coconut mixture.Add needed salt and knead it to make a dough. It will be a little sticky to begin with but as the dough comes together, it gets easier.
  4. Cut banana leaf/ parchment sheet into suitable size pieces. Place a ball sized dough on the leaf / sheet and flatten it with the palm into disc shape(pathiri) . To avoid sticking you can apply few drops of oil on your palm.
  5. Place the rolled pathiri on the greased skillet or pan. When the bottom side starts to get a few light golden spots, flip it over. Cook both sides. Remove from the skillet and place it on a plate.
