Makar Sankranti is Our Forth coming Festival. In almost every Bengali kitchen will be full with aroma of Date Palm Jaggery Or "Nolen Gur". This festival is known as "Poush Sankranti" in West Bengal. Varieties of sweets are made with Ground rice, date palm jaggery , milk and many other ingredients. Patishapta Pitha is one of them. Traditionally this Pitha is made by grinding soaked rice in Bengali mortar and pestle. I 've also followed this process to make my Patishaptas. This will make your Patishaptas even more tasty and soft.
This is a sweet crepe made with ground rice, all purpose flour, semolina and milk. And the crepes are stuffed with scraped coconut, khoya kheer and molasses stuffing. This is a very popular Pitha for this "Poush Parbon" festival. This crepes are served as usual or may be soaked in milk. But today I'm sharing the simple Patishapta pitha with kheer filling.
