Kalakki Chutta Pathiri


  •  2 cups roasted rice flour
  • 1 ½ cup warm water
  • 2-3 cups water at room temp
  • ½ tsp salt
  • coconut oil or sunflower oil


  • Add the rice to a container and add the warm water. Not Boiling, Not lukewarm. Quite warm rather.
  • Stir till there are no lumps. It should be a very thick batter.
  • Cover and allow to rest in a warm place or room temp for ½ to 1 hour.
  • Now add room temp water and salt to make a very loose batter( looser than ‘dosa’ batter)
  • Heat a non-stick pan or ‘appa chatti’. Wipe with Coconut oil.
  • Pour a ladle full of batter on to the heated pan.
  • You will see bubbles forming. Once many bubbles have formed and popped, add a few drops of coconut oil around edges,cover the pan and allow to cook for 1-2 minutes on low heat.
  • Lift away with a flexible plastic spatula.
  • Repeat for the entire batter.
  • The crepes should be light. If you find that the first one is heavy around the centre add more water.
  • Stir well before each crepe is made to loosen the flour that has settled to the bottom of the container.
