Hope you are all Challenging yourselves!

Welcome to all the new members and hello again everyone! What do you all think of our brand new blog? Do  let us know! After all- this is your space!
We are now on Facebook as well :) So don't forget to come by, add yourself there and say hi! 

I had mentioned in my post announcing the March Kerala Kitchen that this month we would also try to challenge ourselves to try out something new- A Malabar style Chatti Pathiri that not many of us have encountered before.
I am proud to say that I have successfully completed the challenge and here is my beauty :)
I am so thrilled with it, and this is going to be my favourite new party dish :)
If I can do it, then you most definitely can! And let me say, it was much easier than it looks!

Chatti Pathiris can be made with many variations.
I made mine with Whole Wheat flour and used chicken sausages for the filling.
This can easily be made with veggies like mushroom, onions, corn, peas, bellpeppers, paneer, soy nuggets etc.

Also check out an awesome Sweet version of the Chatti Pathiris from Shab's blog.
For the original challenge recipe from Ria go to her blog here

Now go make it if you haven't already!

Also keep the entries for this month's Kerala Kitchen coming in to magpiemails AT gmail DOT com! Remember the last date is 30th March.
Make sure you have included a link to either the Kerala Kitchen page on my blog, or preferably, this new Kerala Kitchen blog! 

See you all at the roundup. Until then, keep cooking, eating, blogging,smiling, laughing, loving and do also remember the many people in Japan affected by the terrible earthquake and continue to pray for them to be filled with hope and not despair as they rebuild their lives.

-Best wishes
