Chatti Pathiri to Serve

Chatti Pathiri is a layered pastry made in the North Malabar and Malabar region, of Kerala State. It is made in both sweet and savoury variations. The dish is very similar to the Italian lasagna. Instead of pasta; pastry sheets / pancakes made with flour, egg, oil and water is used in this recipe. The filling depends on the variation desired. The sweet ones are made with sweetened beaten eggs, nuts and raisins, seasoned with cardamom. The savoury ones are made with traditional meat filling used in making samosas or savoury puffs. Once layered, it goes in for baking at 180 degrees for approximately 20 minutes. An essential ingredient to enhance the authenticity of the dish is the white poppy seeds, used extensively in Malabar cuisine while making biryani and meat stews.

It is considered an essential part of any festival, pre- and post-wedding events, and Iftar.
