Designer Patishapta Pithe (Stuffed Crepes - Bengali Style)


          These beautiful stuffed patterned Crepes known as Patishapta Pithe is a traditional homemade Bengali sweet usually prepared during the festival of Sankranti. It is also very popular in Bangladesh. They are crepes made of rice flour-plain flour and stuffed with fresh coconut and khoya (thickened milk). It is sometimes sweetened with date palm jaggery instead of sugar.

           But in this recipe I stuffed with semolina-coconut halwa. You can stuff it with some store bought kalakand for an instant version. Give a designer look to it by forming some beautiful patterns to make them look appealing and appetizing. So check for a step by step pictorial recipe. 





  • 1 cup rice flour (makes 8 )
  • 1/2 cup plain flour (maida)
  • 2 tbsp. semolina
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cardamom powder
  • 1 tsp. rose water
  • 1 & 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp. melted ghee
  • 1-2 drops of red, green & yellow colour
  • ghee to grease
  • 1 & 1/2 cup stuffing 





          In a bowl, mix together all the above mentioned ingredients (except the stuffing) into a smooth semi thick batter. Keep aside for 15-20 minutes.

          In 3 small bowls, take a ladleful of the batter. In each of it add the 3 different colours. Mix well and keep aside. Fill the coloured batter into piping bags / bottle.

           Heat a non-stick pan and grease with some ghee. Now make a pattern of your choice with the coloured batter. Cover with a lid for a few seconds till the batter is set.

          Pour a ladleful of the white batter and spread it around over the pattern so as to cover it. Cover and cook for a few seconds more.

          Place some of the stuffing lengthwise in one corner and fold gently like a roll. Transfer to a serving plate. Make similar designer pithes and relish as and when desired.
