Irachi Pathiri ~ Meat Stuffed Bread From Malabar !



If you start digging Malabar (North Kerala) recipes,it’s a no-end journey..The rich and flamboyant.I have mentioned earlier about the umpteen varieties of pathiris they prepare and have..Too tempting and scrumptious to resist.Though I don’t have a Malabar connection,I too attempt many of Malabar delicacies.Irachi pathri is a stuffed bread that is deep fried first and then roasted in an egg mixture.Enjoy this delicacy at least once !

Ingredients (makes 3 medium size)

For Pathiri

1 cup maida/all purpose flour
salt & water as required

For stuffing
A.
250 gm minced meat (I used chicken)
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp chilly powder
salt

B.
2 medium sized onions,chopped finely
2-3 green chillies, chopped finely
1 piece of ginger,chopped finely
6-7 garlic cloves,crushed
1 tsp mint leaves,chopped
1 tbsp coriander leaves,chopped
2 sprig curry leaves
oil as required

For the final coating
2 eggs,
1 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp cardamom powder

Method

Cook the minced meat adding the spices and salt mentioned in section A.Cook in low heat without adding water.Chicken mince will release the water while cooking.Cook till the meat is dry and done.Switch off and keep it ready.Meanwhile make a smooth dough with maida,salt and water.Keep it aside too.Heat oil in a kadai or cooking pot and roast the chopped onion till light brown.Add the chopped chillies,ginger and garlic.Roast till the raw smell vanish.Add chopped curry leaves,coriander leaves and mint leaves and mix well.To this add the cooked meat mince and check the seasoning.Add salt if necessary.Switch off and allow it to cool.
Make 6 balls from the dough.Roll it to the size of a medium poori.Repeat the process and make 6 pooris of almost the same size.Now arrange the meat filling in the centre of poori and close with another.Seal the sides and keep.Thus prepare three pathiris.The sides should be completely sealed.Heat oil in a kadai and fry these pathiris till brown.Both sides should be fried.
The last part is dipping in an egg mixture and roasting.This is optional.Traditionally this is the way they do it in Malabar though.Prepare the egg mixture with eggs,sugar and cardamom powder.Dip each fried pathiri in this mixture and shallow fry in a pan.Enjoy !

* For spice lovers who visit this page – You may find the filling too bland.It’s for you to customize with more spices and even garam masala .I made it as a snack tolerable even to children.

    What can one say? I wish the sectional cut of the Pathiri to show the stuffing had been made by my mouth; I'd have gloated over my teeth marks on it! Thank god, drooling over pictures cannot raise one's cholesterol!

    The filling yum yum!!! Perhaps the punch line was leaving the pathari cut and the fillings seen outside. All to make the reader drool. Wish I could lay hands upon these patharis.
