Patishapta - A Bengali Sweet Crepe

Indian cuisine have varieties of foods, each and every part of India have their traditional,authentic dishes. Since even i joined Indian Cooking Challenge a monthly event by Srivalli,am learning truly variety of foods from India.We already cooked from many parts of India, for this month's challenge she choosed this addictive,super delicious patishapta, an incredible sweet crepes prepared in Bengal during the festival of sankranti. I have already had many varieties of crepes,but this bengali sweet crepe was quite different from the others, the filling used in this crepe goes for a lovely coconut,palmsugar and khoya mixture.

These crepes were super soft and with this coconut-khoya filling, these crepes tastes fabulously awesome when we enjoyed this. Usually this crepes are served with sweetened milk but i served them with condensed milk which gives more sweetness to this wonderful sweet crepe, if you are an ardent fan of Bengali sweets like me you will definitely fallen in love with this crepes.Thanks to Sandeepa for sharing this yummy crepes.Sending to Ramadan Friendly Recipes by Halal Foodie.


For Batter:
1cup Maida
4tsp Rawa
2tsp Rice flour
1+3/4cups Milk

For Filling:
1cup Grated fresh coconut
1/2cup Khoya
1/4cup Palm sugar/Regular sugar

Sweetened condensed milk (for serving)

Heat a pan, take the coconut and sugar together,mix it well with a spatula, once the sugar melts add the khoya and cook until the mixture turns thick.

Meanwhile mix all the ingredients given for the batter in a bowl and makes a smooth batter.

Heat a tawa, pour a ladle of this prepared batter and spread it as round thin circle, if needed drizzle melted butter or ghee.

Once it gets cooked, flip it and cook the other side.

Place the prepared filling in the middle and bring the edges of the crepe to the center.

Serve immediately drizzled with sweetened condensed milk.

  12. Glad that you liked it...You can also skip the rice flour and just do with maida+sooji. Somehow mine turns out softer that way. Also if you are a dosa expert try spreading the batter thin like you would do in a rawa dosa.
