ABOUT Designer Patishapta Pithe RECIPE

This traditional homemade Bengali sweet reminds me of the Indian festival of Sankranti when they are prepared and relished. They are crepes made of rice flour-plain flour combo and stuffed with fresh coconut and khoya (thickened milk). It is sometimes sweetened with date palm jaggery instead of sugar. So here is my version of some patterned patishapta pithe. Country.....UAE.
