Cookbook:Pashti  Pashti

Pashti is a flatbread common to the Southern Indian subcontinent. It is usually made with rice flour, pan fried in ghee / cooking oil. A pashti is usually served with either chutneys, usually peanut (Phalli Ki Chutney) or with kormas.

Pashti is made by kneading rice flour in hot water, as cold water tends to form lumps. The dough is then rolled out with rolling pins, and circles are cut out by pressing a plate or jar top onto the dough.

The dish is common to the cuisine of the Labbay community of Arcot District in Tamil Nadu.
