Shallow fried Pathrades

Posted on Updated on


Pathrade – classic Karnataka recipe – is soemthing I have put up already. There is something about eating hot pathrades as a lunch side dish but once they have cooled you have another option – shallow fry them ! Unlike the conventional shallow fried items ( see example here ) where you need to prepare a masala powder, Pathrade has all the spices/masala flavor it needs – so all you do is apply sujee and optional turmeric powder.

What you need to have:

1. Pathrade slices – a few

2. Sujee – 1/2 cup

3. Turmeric powder – 1 Teaspoon

4. Salt – To taste 26-2-2009-012 Cooked Pathrade slices

What you do with what you have:

1. Mix sujee, salt, turmeric powder and apply it to each of the sliced pathrades. 26-2-2009-015

2. Place a skillet with 4-5 teaspoons of cooking oil in it. On heating, place pathrade slices in a circular shape one by the side of the other. Close with a lid applying oil on the sides.

3. After a while when it is done flip the slices to fry on the other side applying 4-5 teaspoons of cooking oil. When done serve hot with dal and rice. It will be really very yummy.
