rice puri, rice pooris recipe, tandalache vade recipe

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.

  1. the recipe was awesome!But its name is RAUNTAUS in konkanis of kerala.I love your recipes and always refer this for cooking.I am a student and beginner in cooking.My family loves the food I make and the credit goes to dassanaji for your wonderful recipes5 stars

  2. Hey D , I made these last night for the first time . They were a bit more on the crispy side , but me and my 2 year old loved them . Thank you for cranking out all these relish recipes ! 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 .

    • 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!

  4. Hi iam zanny

    I just saw ur recipes looks delicious and
    I will surely try them . The most attract me is
    The rice pooris. Thanx

  5. excellent rice pooris and I served with rasedar aloo.yummy. Great contribution from you to people who are on no onion no garlic diet. Divine be with you and guide you. Lots of love and wishes to go further onward and upward.

  6. Hi,

    I love your blog…made many recipes, all worked out perfect except rice poories. They didn’t puff at all…were rather crunchy 🙁 What did I do wrong?

    Cheers,
    Sheetal

    • was the oil hot enough? if the oil is not hot, then the pooris will not puff. a test is to drop a small piece in the oil. if it comes up steadily, then the oil is hot. if too fast, then the oil is too hot. if it settles at the bottom, then the oil is not hot. another reason could be the amount of water added. if less water is added, they will become crunchy.

  7. I am just confused at the first part…you said warm it for 20 to 25 mins…with the flame or without?

    Thanks 🙂

  8. hi dassana,
    i have gone through few recipes of yours, and they turned out good,
    i request you to please please please post up the recipe on how to make jowar roti (jaari ki roti) the one made with hot water to make the dough, and while cooking too water is spread on the roti.
    as my in-laws prefer to eat this type of roti. and i am zero in it 🙁4 stars

  9. I’ve got the same idea than someone here even before seeing the recipe:a sweet version. You said that it should be flipped once or twice after flipping it.
    Is this necessary if it’s already golden after flipping it once?Should I cook on medium heat?

    • not necessary. if its turned golden and the oil has stopped sizzling, then you just need to flip once. yes you can fry on medium heat. i think i will have to post a sweet version of rice pooris.

  10. Awesome! I love pooris and will totally be trying this recipe. Btw I made the paneer tikka masala from this site tonight and it was excellent (if I do say so myself….)

  11. Good one, will try it soon and let you know. Back in my place in Kerala, they make a similar poori called ‘varutha pathiri’. I had tried it a few times, only difference is in the spice mix. What’s added instead in this version is crushed coconut, shallots, green chillies and fennel. That would be slightly thick, and is had with evening tea. There are many other versions of ‘pathiri’ as well (you’d be aware of, probably), and they are normally regulars in muslim families. They make it super thin (the non-fried version)..Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    • thanks anu for your inputs. i know of pathiri. but as you said, there are many versions. i will try to make this version which you shared with coconut, shallots etc. i am sure these would taste damn good with tea.

  12. can we make it sweet…i mean instead of spices cn we add sugar???
    pls do tell the procedure for dat.
