  4. As the dough will be very hot , knead the dough with spoon
  5. Apply coconut oil to both palms and knead dough with both hands while its still warm for 5 minutes. Do not allow mixture to cool completely and Do not add any water
  6. Divide dough into equal balls. Dust the surface with rice flour and roll the ball into roti. Place on hot tawa. Pathiri should always be cooked on medium heat
  7. Keep the pathiri on it, rotating in between, steam will pass through it within few seconds and when the pathiri starts bubbling turn it upside down.
  8. Slightly press it using the back side of a spoon, this will help it to rise up as one single bubble. Pathiri should not be brown, it should be cooked yet white in appearance
