  3. Make the batter for the pancakes by mixing all the ingredients in a blender or whisking until you get a lump free batter. 
  4. Heat a non-stick pan/tawa and pour the batter to make a thin dosa like pancake to fit the size of the saucepan(that you will be using for assembling). It can be slightly bigger than the saucepan but dnt make it smaller than the saucepan.
  5. Cook both sides and stack them in a plate making sure it doesn't stick together.
  7. Grease all sides of an saucepan with about 2 tblsp oil/ghee

  9. Continue to make layers till all the chicken filling has been used up and complete the top with a pancake and pour the rest of the egg over the top of the layers.
  10. Close the saucepan with a close fitting lid so that steam won't escape while cooking.You can cover/seal with aluminium foil as an extra precaution.
  11. Put the saucepan on a very low flame and cook for about 15-20 minutes till the sides of pancake remove from the pan and it slightly shrinks in size. or u can keep the saucepan on top an another ( grill )pan and cook so we dont need to be worried that it get burned at bottom.
  12. Then invert it and cook for 5 more mins.
  13. After it slightly cools but is still warm,run a knife through the sides to ensure it doesn't stick to the sides and carefully invert onto the serving dish. Serve chatti pathiri warm .
