Chatti Pathiri / Layered Pan Cake


Chatti  pathiri is a layered meat (or sweet) filling . it is a wonderful  heavy snack also. It includes three steps of making. Making the masala, dipping batter and making pan cakes. You can make the pan cakes by method of making dosa also (flour, water, egg,salt). But here I’m making the chappathi dough and make pan cakes from this; it tastes more than the other way.

  1. Chicken boneless-250 gm
  2. Onion-3small
  3. Ginger chopped-1tsp
  4. Garlic chopped-1tsp
  5. Green chilli chopped-1tsp
  6. Curry leaves chooped-1tbsp
  7. Coriander leaves chopped-1tbsp
  8. Turmeric powder- ½ tsp
  9. Chilly powder- ½ tsp
  10. Pepper powder- 1 tsp
  11. Coriander powder-1 tsp
  12. Garam masala- ½ tsp
For the pan cakes:
  1. Maida / all purpose flour- 2cup
  2. Ghee-1tsp
  3. Salt to taste
  4. Water- to make dough
For the dipping:
  1. Egg-3
  2. Milk-1tbsp
  3. Pepper powder-1/2 tsp
  4. Salt-to taste
