This Green Chile Pathiri is a dish that I have had in my head and have been wanting to make for a very long time, so I was thrilled when I saw that April’s Daring Cook’s Challenge was to make a savory Pathiri.
What is Pathiri? Pathiri is an Indian dish that is made by alternating crepes with a sweet or savory filling. The crepes are normally made with rice flour and dipped in coconut milk or brushed with ghee during assembly. This process is very similar to the one I use for stacked enchiladas, just different ingredients. For enchiladas instead of rice flour crepes, corn tortillas are dipped in green or red chile sauce and alternated with a savory filling and cheese.
