The World of Pattice or Patties - or simply pronunced pattic..... Have come to become one of the best known evening snacks available ... Imagine a Light  Brown Crispy, Fluffy Crust on inside, loaded with lots of ghee or oil, & filled with heaveny stuffings ..... Fragile Crisp on outside, fluffy, crispy flakes , with lots of flakes acoming out with every bite ...The Layers of the dough are nicely laden with oil & mix so well with the stuffings, mixing the oil flavor with the stuffing ...There are a variety of stuffings used in the ever popular pattice - Vegetable, Panneer, Cheese, Chicken, Mutton, Mushroom ....

Pattice also have their little shapes & sizes with each shape depicting some message or associated with a particular stuffing - Bakers, Shopkeepers, also try & keep different shapes for the Pattice, in order to differentiate between the Stuffings they offer ..The Expensive or better the Stuffing, generally smaller the size for the Pattice --- Chicken Pattice generally would be round & smaller than a Paneer Patty or smaller than even a Vegetable Pattice
