This recipe I wanted to try from long time but some how I could not make it. When I saw this recipe in this months ICC, I just wanted to take this challenge. Thank you so much Valli for the recipe. Patishapta is one of the traditional Bengali sweet, which is not much Popular like other Bengali Sweets. This sweet crepes I made for todays break fast we like the insted as a desert . I reduced the sweet and added some dry fruits like raisins, cashew nuts. I served it with condence milk and chocolate sauce, That was perfect for me yummm....
                                                                     I made them in a small amount so I reduced the amount what Valli has given. Thanks Valli for this delicious challenge.
