Baked Aduku Pathiri, Aduku Pathiri is a North Malabar delicasy, its a famous snack during festive time there. So here I used the adukupathiri concept and baked with spring roll sheet and minced beef masala filling. Normally they make aduku pathiri on the gas stove in a sauce pan.

Rinse minced beef with water and a pinch of turmeric powder then drain water well and keep it aside. Take a pressure cooker and add minced beef, 1/4 tsp of turmeric powder, 1/2 tsp o red chili powder, 1/2 tsp of coriander powder and salt with little water and cook for 2 to 3 whistle. Then remove and keep it aside.
Take a fry pan and add 2 tbsp of oil and heat on medium flame. Once the oil is hot add chopped onion and saute until it become translucent. Add ginger garlic paste and saute then add curry leaves and saute for few seconds. Add chopped green chili and saute for few seconds. Now add 1/4 tsp turmeric powder, 1/2 tsp of red chili powder, 1/2 tsp of coriander powder, 1/4 tsp of garam masala powder, black pepper powder and salt, saute for few seconds. Now add boiled minced beef mix and combine everything well. Cover and cook for 1 minute. Then open the lid and stir well until the water evaporates and masala gets thicker. If you want can add chopped coriander leaves during this time. I didn't add. Now keep this mix aside.
If you decided to make pancake then mix everything mentioned under ' to make pathiri / pan cake' and make medium thin pancakes and keep it aside. If you are using file sheet or spring roll sheet and then keep this out from the freezer.
Take a medium size bowl and add all ingredients which mentioned under 'to coat '. Whisk everything well and keep it aside.
Grease a baking tray with oil, I used loaf trey for this recipe. Pre heat oven to 200 degree C for 10 minutes.
Now will do layering. Take 1 pan cake or ready made spring roll sheet / filo sheet and dip in the coat mix and place it into the baking trey. Take 1 more pan cake and dip into the coat mix and place in to the trey, because of first layer and for the bottom thickness can keep 2 pan cakes. Now spread the beef masala filling evenly on top of it. Now dip the pancake or sheet in to the coat mix and keep it on top of the masala. Then again spread the beef masala mix on top. Continue layering until the beef masala and pancake gets over. Top layer should be a pan cake. Pour the remaining coat mix on top and garnish with little minced beef masala, chopped capsicum, cashew nuts, raisins and sesame seeds. I didn't put sesame seeds.
Now keep them in the oven and bake on 180 degree C for 20 to 30 minutes. Remove and keep it aside to cool down a bit then remove it into the serving dish and serve warm.
