Rice powder roasted                              1 cup
Water                                                 1 cup
Salt to taste

Add salt and slowly add the rice powder to boiling water. Make sure to stir continuously to avoid forming lumps. Remove from fire and keep it to cool down slightly. Knead thoroughly using both hands and make into a dough.  The more you knead, the softer the dough becomes. Make lemon-sized balls and press slightly using palms. Roll them on a board using a rolling pin, sprinkling rice powder to prevent it from sticking.
Heat a skillet and keeping on medium, put the pathiri on it. Keep turning it continuously a few times. Make sure it maintains the white colour and not change to brown. The pathiri comes out real soft. Eat hot.

Coriander powder                                           2 tsp
Curry leaves                                                   as desired
Salt to taste

Shallow fry the sausage pieces and keep aside. In the same oil sauté the onion and garlic.
