Chatti Pathiri ( Kerela Sweet Lasagna for ICC )

Chatti Pathiri is a Kerelian sweet . Its a lot like italian lasagna and this dish is made both sweet and savory way.

 Actually till the time  Srivalli  chose this yummy authentic dish for our november month's challenge for  ICC  ( indian-cooking-challenge ) I was completely unaware that such a dish exists. But this is a very delicious dish which is very easy to make and is rich and sinful with dry fruits and milkmaid . 

The addition of black sesame seeds and poppy seeds gives it a traditional touch and all in all this was a total winner . 

I will definitely make it again and again , the only change will be I will make the pathiris with pancake batter and not the rotis . Because I feel the pancakes will make the dish more soft and juicy. 

Thanks Srivalli for introducing us to this beautiful recipe. 








Original source : sliceofmylyfe


Ingredients  for Pathiri :

1 cup .....................maida ( I used half maida and half wheat flour)
1 tbsp....................oil
1/3 cup.................warm water ( to knead into dough)
pinch of salt



Method :

Mix all the above ingredients and knead into a soft but firm dough.

Cover with a wet cloth and keep aside for 15 to 20 minutes.

Now make 7 to 8 equal balls of the dough and roll thin chapatis.

Heat a tawa and lightly cook the chapatis on both the sides.

Your pathiris are ready, keep them aside.



Ingredients for filling :

1 tbsp..............ghee
2 tbsp................black sesame seeds
2 tbsp................poppy seeds
4 tbsp................freshly grated coconut
4 tbsp................almonds ( chopped)
4 tbsp................cashews ( chopped)
4 tbsp...............raisins
1 cup................sweetened condensed milk
1 cup ................coconut milk
1 tbsp...............sugar powder





Method :

Heat ghee in a pan and roast dryfruits till light golden in colour.

Add black sesame seeds and poppy seeds and slightly stir them for 2 minutes.

Add coconut and saute till it gives out nice aroma.

Remove in a bowl and add the condensed milk.

In a separate plate mix coconut milk and powdered sugar and keep ready.



How To Assemble :

Take a baking dish approximately of the size of pathiri  you have rolled.

Smear the base of baking dish with ghee and keep one pathiri on it.

Apply a spoonful of filling on the pathiri .

Now take another pathiri  and dip it in the coconut milk sugar mixture .

Let the pathiri  get nicely coated with the milk mixture.

Keep it on top of the first pathiri.

Repeat this procedure till all the pathiris are over.

Drizzle any filling and coconut mixture if left on top and sprinkle some nuts if desired.

Bake this in an oven for 15 to 20 minutes or till the crust is golden in color.

Serve warm .
