“Chatti Pathiri”- with Caramelized Plantain & Egg(Kerala style sweet crepe cake):
“Chatti Pathiri” is a popular Malabari dish from Kerala.. Wikipedia describes it as:” a layered pastry made in Malabar region of Kerala,India.It is made in both sweet and savory variations. And the dish is similar to Italian Lasagne”!!
So I hope my friends out there got an idea about this dish😊!! Even though i had it many times in my life, i never tried this at home..😊!!
Yeah, I am trying this for the first time..but it was a great pleasure to try this amazing recipe with a twist in its filling..I kept Caramelized plantain and egg along with the usual recipe..
- all purpose flour-1 cup
- egg-6( 2 for batter & 4 for filling )
- plantain-2 big( cut to thin pieces )
- Sugar-as per needed
- Cashew nuts & raisins- a handful( saute in ghee)
- ghee-as per needed( be generous😛)
- Poppy seeds-as per needed
How to make:
1) first let’s prepare the batter for thin pancakes..mix AP flour, egg, a pinch of salt along with enough water for a smooth loose batter..mix it thoroughly without any lumps..
2)heat a pan, grease it with butter/ ghee and start preparing thin pancakes..cook both sides..( try to make this as the size of your baking dish or pan!! I used a sauce pan to get small chatti pathiri with 6 pan cake layers..)
3)now the thin pancakes / dosa are ready!!keep it aside..
4)now let’s prepare the caramelized plantains.. Heat a pan, add ghee and sprinkle some sugar all over evenly..now place our plantains over it and let it turn brown.. Flip and cook the other side..keep it aside after all plantain batches are done..
5)now in the same pan , pour egg beaten with sugar in small batches.. And let it cooked.. Now the sweet smell coming out of it is heaven…😋!!
6)do at least 3-4 egg layers..and keep it aside..
7)now lets start layering..
take our sauce pan/ baking dish.. Grease it fully with ghee/ butter..first place 1 pan cake.. Spread some ghee over it and sprinkle the poppy seeds and nuts..
8)then keep the plantains over it.. Followed by that place the egg layer..
10)for the top layer, place the pan cake with ghee spread.. Sprinkle poppy seeds and nuts all over..
11)now bake this in a preheated oven for 10 mins/ cook in low flame( simmer) on stove with dosa tawa beneath the pan to prevent the dish from sticking to the bottom for 15 mins…
So our ” Chatti Pathiri” is ready😃!!
let it cool for a while and then transfer to a serving plate.. Cut it out like cake and enjoy the rich caramelized dish😃
Very easy and effortless preparation..I really enjoyed doing this authentic Malabari dish..
I hope you all will love it😃😍!
