To begin making the Kerala Style Chicken Chatti Pathiri Recipe, we will first heat a saucepan over medium heat.

Adjust the seasoning according to your taste and saute well till the chicken is cooked. Keep it aside.
To make the pathiri batter, in a mixing bowl, combine wheat flour, all purpose flour along with ½ cup of water and mix to form batter that is similar to that of a pancake batter.
Now heat up a small flat skillet on medium heat, add a ladle full of the pathiri batter and swirl it around, Shape it like crepes and keep it as thin as possible. Flip and cook, ensuring it is juts about cooked and no brown spots appear.
Repeat the same process till you finish the batter, to make enough crepes for layering.
