Chicken chatti pathiri/ Chatti pathil (Layered pastry)

It’s a famous yummy spicy Malabar dish. It can serve as a starter and as evening snack. Here I explain preparation of chatty pathiri with chicken, we can prepare it with beef, mutton and prawn. I think Chatti pathiri with prawn stuffing is more tasty than others.
