This is one of the traditional eid special in malabar sides. Whenever i visit my grand mother's home, i asked her to prepare this for me. And i decided that my followers also should taste this. 
One of the benefits of this is we dont need to use much oil for this. So cholestrol is not the main enemy here.

While preparing we have to take care of one thing is the second pathiri is bigger than the first. And the third one is bigger than the second , so on. 

 So that we can handle it easy, otherwise it will break the layers. Using maida batter at the sides will act as a glue and help from breaking the layers. Here i used simple chicken filling. You can also use any type of filling.

a very happy and prosperous eid to all of you....:)

Ingredients :

. Maida / flour - 1 - 1 1/4 cup
. Salt - to taste
. Egg - 2
. Tomato - 1/2

  1. Wow I love your detail explanation :)

  2. Although I can't make this at home since the batter uses eggs and filling uses chicken (I am a vegetarian), it is pretty interesting to learn about new foods from different regions. This is the first time I am coming across this particular dish!
