Savory Chatti Pathiri (Atti Pathiri/Atti Pathal)
Here is another famous and delicious Malabar snack – Chatti Pathiri/Atti pathal/Atti pathiri. This yummy snack hold its place on Iftar table and other festival parties or simply as evening snacks. This Malabar delicacy made in both sweet and savory versions. By its look, chatti pathiri is very similar to Italian Lasagna. Crepes are layered with meat fillings and cooked in lowest flame or baked in the oven.
Since my hubby loves savory snacks for Iftar, I prefer to make Malabar savory snacks for him. Chatti pathiri is very filling and you can also make this as a dinner item. Filling can be made ahead of time and making crepe and assembling can be done simultaneously on the day you prepare Chatti pathiri.
Preparation is little bit lengthy process but delicious treat is assured at the end. Filling can be done as you desire, I made filling with chicken in authentic north Malabar style.
This yummy dish is called by different names in various regions of malabar.But method of preparations are almost similar. Anyways here is the recipe for you.
