For pathiri:

100 gms all purpose flour/maida (for 6 layers)

1 tablespoon oil

Water as required

Salt as required Filling:

3 eggs

5 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon ghee

3 tablespoon coconut (grated)

25 gms raisins

25 gms cashew nuts (broken)

3 tablespoon poppy seeds / khus khus

1 teaspoon cardomom powder

For coating:

3 eggs

4 tablespoons sugar

A pinch cardomom


1.Mix the flour with water, oil and salt and knead into a dough like that of chappathi, medium hard. Using a roller pin, roll it out into paper-thin chapathies of uniform size (8 inches in diameter) on a dusted flour board. Heat a griddle and cook the chapathis lightly on a tawa. You can vary the size of the chappathi depending on the size of the pathiri chatti or the vessel in which you are baking it.

2.Beat 3 eggs with sugar, 1 tbsp ghee and cardamom. Heat a wok. Add 1 tbsp ghee, saute raisins, cashew-nuts, poppy seeds and grated coconut until they change their colour slightly. Now add the beaten egg and scrambled the whole mixture. Keep it aside.

3.Beat the remaining eggs, sugar and cardamom and keep aside.

4.Take a non-stick baking tray, spread 1 teaspoon oil or ghee all around (spray the nonstick oil). Keep one chapathi as the first layer. Now dip the second chapathi in the egg mixture, coat well and place it on top. Arrange the scrambled egg mixture.0Keep another chappathi on top. Make a new layer. Keep adding the egg-coating at each step and finally pour the remaining egg mixture over the sides and on the top.

5.Garnish it with cashew nuts and raisins and bake in an oven for nearly 15 mintues or till the whole pathiri turns golden. Traditionally, the baking is done in a sealed container with the coconut husk embers on top. Though a little bit of a process, this delicacy is definitely worth the trouble, especially for all those with a sweet tooth.
