Chatti pathiri is a layered pastry made in the Malabar region, of Kerala, India. It uses pastry sheets or pancakes made with flour, egg, oil and water. The filling can be sweet, made with sweetened seasoned beaten eggs, nuts and raisins, or savoury, with the traditional meat filling used in samosas or savoury puffs. The flour is kneaded into soft dough and rolled into thin pancakes which are softened in milk and arranged in layers with filling between them and baked.

It is considered an essential part of any festival, pre- and post-wedding events, and Iftar. This dish is popular during the Ramadan Fasting period. [1]
