(layered pan cakes with meat or chicken filling-A north Malabar delicacy)
Chatti pathiri or adukku pathiri is a very famous classic North Malabar snack usually made during Ramadan,actually a snack but heavier than a snack .There are two versions of chatti pathiri sweet and savory.Several times I made both version especially the sweet chatipathiri.I always prefer spicy food so I just decided to make the savory version.
may be the recipe looks too long but preparing chati pathiri is not a difficult thing.the only thing is ,you need some patience and a perfect vessel.then prepare the filling,make pan cakes and coat it with batter then arrange layers.thats it……..
Wikipedia says it is similar to Italian lasagne. Instead of pasta ,pastry sheets or pan cakes made with flour egg and milk are used.you can make chatti pathiri in two ways by making thin uniform size chapatis or by making pan cakes.I prefer making pan cakes because its more easy.you can use it as a snack or appetizer.Here is the recipe of chatti pathiri…………enjoy it
