Pati Shapta

This edition of Indian Cooking Challenge is a traditional Bengali sweet which is made for the festival of Sankranthi. This is typically a rice-flour dosa/crepe with a sweet khoya-coconut filling and a sweet milk topping.
I have scaled down the measurement to make a smaller batch  and we found it to be very filling and delightful. This would definitely make a great party dessert.

Method Of Preparation -
To Prepare the Filling - 
Mix the khoya, coconut and sugar and microwave for 4-5 min in 45 sec intervals until the result is semi powdery and sticky filling. 

Traditionally on a stove top it might take about 20-30 min to achieve this consistency.
To Prepare the Topping - 
Blend the ingredients in a mixer/blender and boil for a couple minutes and set aside.
To Prepare the crepes and assembly - 
In a mixing bowl, add the maida, wheat flour, sooji, rice flour and salt. 

Add milk gradually and mix it with your hand to get a lump free batter. The batter needs to be a little thinner than pan cake batter.

On a heated griddle/tawa, pour a ladle full of batter and spread it quickly to make a small, thin dosa/pancake.

Cook on both sides until they are golden brown. Take about 1 1/2 Tbsp of filling and fill it lengthwise in the center of the crepe and fold the edges.

Remove onto a serving plate and make as many crepes as needed.

While serving drizzle the topping as needed and dig in!!
