Petti pathil/ Petti pathiri

Petti pathiri is  a famous Malabar (northern part of Kerala, India) snack item especially in Thalassery area. Actually this is an another form of irachi pathiri, a common snack of Malabar.I prepared it as round shape but it's exact shape should be square then  only we can call it as petti pathil (petti is Malayalam meaning of box). I was hurry to make iftar foods so I couldn't manage its shape  for that I apologize you.  Normally it is using as party appetizer. We used to prepare this for mehndi ceremony, iftar party and list will go long. I think Malabar people doesn't need any special occasion to prepare this they love to make foods so no need to tell any particular occasion.
