Chaapat/Chapat/Parsi Crepes

Parsi crepes aka chapat is a tea time snacks especially during sunday afternoon. This crepes are quite famous in Parsi cuisine, chapat makes an excellent breakfast to the kids. Chapat goes for an easy breezy batter, as much as like French crepes, but this Parsi style crepes goes for nutmeg and cardamom powder. This spice powder gives an extra flavor to this Parsi crepes.Chapat batter spread on pan like a crepe and cooked till done. The chapat is then folded and filled with any fruit jam or jelly before serving. A healthy way to start your day.

Parsi Crepes, Chatpat

This crepes goes for an easy batter, obviously first you need to beat the maida, eggs,milk and sugar together before adding all the spices. Use the back of your spoon to ensure there are no lumps, later add the nutmeg, cardamom and vanilla essence. If the batter is too thick, add a little milk to give the pouring consistency,if the batter is too thin, add little more flour to the batter. I used non stick frying pan to make this fabulous crepes. Some makes this Parsi crepes as thick pancake or else as thin crepes, i opted for the thin crepes and serve it along with jam and dusted with icing sugar.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#52.
