How to Make Pathrodo, Pathrodo Bajjile and Pathrodo Upkari

  • For the batter: Wash and soak the boiled rice and raw rice for 6 hours.
  • Grind the rice, grated coconut, star fruit/tamarind pulp/tamarind juice, red chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt (batter should be slightly coarser than idli batter).
  • Add hing and transfer the batter to another vessel.
  • Spread a plastic sheet or banana leaves (with face down) on the kitchen platform.
  • Apply a thin layer of the batter on the back side of a colocasia leaf. Place another leaf over it and apply the batter.
  • Repeat with the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th leaf.
  • Fold the sides and roll to form a cylindrical roll. Tie this roll with a cotton thread or vazha naaru.
  • Prepare 2 more rolls with the remaining batter.
  • Place the rolls in a pressure cooker (without weight ) and steam for 40-50 minutes on medium heat. If steaming in a steamer, it may take 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • For the Pathrodo Bajjile: When the Pathrodo has cooled, cut into slices and shallow-fry in a non-stick frying pan greased with coconut oil.
  • For Pathrodya Upma/Usli: Crush the Pathrodo into smaller pieces. Heat a little oil in a frying pan. Season mustard seeds in the oil until they crackle. Add the crushed pieces of Pathrodo and cook on very low flame until crisp.
