Patishapta, a unique sweet dish widely famous in Bengal, especially during the sankranti time of the year. Can be safely related as the cousin of its french counterpart “crepes”, this dish is made out of rice crepes stuffed with a humble serving of coconut and jaggery filling to honour the new rice produced in the season’s harvest.

An age old weakness for Bengalis all across the globe , as it doesn’t get made any other time unless you make a puppy face in front of your mother.
