Rice puri recipe with step by step photos – some days when I make usal or black peas curry, I make rice pooris and sometimes rice bhakri/roti.

The pooris are easy to prepare and are made with rice flour. just that you need to knead it with hot water. The pooris are lightly spiced with coriander, cumin, fenugreek and fennel powder. At mom’s place rice pooris are made this way. They also make rice bhakri in a similar way minus the spices.

The kneading time is less than what is required to knead whole wheat flour dough. Thats one of my incentives for kneading dough made with gluten free flours like rice flour or millet flours 🙂

In marathi, these rice poori are called as tandalache vade (rice is called as “tandul” in marathi). They are a specialty made in the malvan-konkan-Goan regions of the coastal Indian belt. There are some variations in the preparation. The recipe I have posted is an easy quick one. This recipe does not have urad dal flour/black gram flour and chickpea flour. Hence I am not calling these Malvani vade.

A crisp outer texture and a softer inner texture, makes these pooris or vade a good accompaniment with a coconut based curry or vegetable dish. Usually these vades, are had with chicken curry. Vegetarians have these with the kale vatanyache sambar/usal. They also taste good with kale vatanaychi amti (black peas curry).

Serve these rice puri with With a coconut based lentil/legume/sprouts curry or a vegetable dish.

You have become a life savior for me in preparing healthy dishes for my daughter . I especially loved all your dal recipes . They are simply delish .

    1. thank you preethi. these are crisp but not very crisp. if you fry on a medium or medium-high flame, they will be just crisp. but i am glad that you and your daughter enjoyed them.

  3. Hi! Just found your amazing site today and i’m going straight to the kitchen to prepare a special dinner with your recipes. You inspired me! It’s a hard work, but you really help those of us that don’t have the knowledge of your tradition, the photos are extremely helpful.
    My husband can’t eat gluten, is there any type of Indian bread without gluten?
    Can’t thank you enough!

    1. thanks a lot claudia. feeling good after reading your comment. in india, we do have some gluten free breads. with rice flour, we also make rice breads. the method is same as shown above. just that we roast the bread on a skillet/tawa instead of frying. i have posted some links of more gluten free breads. you should be able to get sorghum flour and finger millet flour in a indian grocery store.
