This is an ultimate Malabar delicacy similar to the Italian Lasagna. The procedure is completed . But it can be made in a breeze when the filling is made ahead. And the steps go like this.

1. Crepes made of flour. 2. Then those soft melt in mouth crepes are dipped in beaten egg. 3. They are layered in a preheated well greased non stick pan. 4. Spicy chicken/meat fillings are stuffed in between each layers. 5.And baked on stove top/ oven for 40 minutes.6. It is cut into triangles (any desired shapes)and enjoyed.
