Introduction: Apple Patishapta (Dessert)

Patishapta is a traditional sweet dish of Bangladesh. It's a regular at my house and I'm very happy that I'm finally sharing the recipe because it's the only dish that I can make better than my mom!

Anyways, we usually add molasses, shredded coconut but this time i tried something different. I was a little worried about the taste but kept my fingers crossed. Using apple for filling wasn't a bad idea at all! It turned out awesome. Follow this ible to find out how to make apple patishapta, hope you like it :)

Step 1: Ingredients

To make Apple Patishapta you'll need (a recipe for 4-5):

  1. Fresh apple - 1, medium size,
  2. Milk - 2 cups,
  3. All purpose flour - 1 cup,
  4. Rice flour - half cup,
  5. Sugar - half cup,
  6. Egg - 1,
  7. Vegetable oil - for making the patishapta

Step 2: Making the Batter

In a bowl add 1 cup of all purpose flour, half cup of rice flour and half cup of sugar,

Now, add half cup of milk and an egg to the dry ingredients.

Beat all the dry and wet ingredients together until a light and fluffy batter is made.

Cover and keep the batter in a dry place for half an hour.

Step 3: Preparing Apple Filling

Wash and peel an apple.

Chop the apple into small pieces as you want but make sure that all pieces are of the same size.

Done cutting? now take a pot,

Add the chopped apple, half cup of milk and half cup of condensed milk in the pot and boil them on low heat,

Stir occasionally and boil them until the milk is thick and creamy.

Yummy apple filling is ready!

Step 4: Making Patishapta

You'll need 2 spoons for this step, a bouillon spoon and a flat spoon.

Take a non sticky fry-pan, add a small amount of butter or oil (not more than 1 tbsp) and put it on medium heat.

Fill the bouillon spoon with batter and carefully pour a thin layer of batter into the fry-pan, make sure that the layer is round,

Do not spread the batter on the fry-pan, let it spread by itself.

Wait for 10-15 seconds and then add the apple filling lengthwise on the layer (crepe),

Use the flat spoon to roll both sides of the crepe to cover the apple filling.

When the crepe will start to turn a little brownish use the flat spoon to take it out of the pan.

Similarly make the rest.

Step 5: Final Step

Use a tissue paper to soak oil if needed,

Keep the patishaptas in the fridge for an hour or so before serving.

You won't realize how yummy they turn out unless you have some (or one!). I hope you enjoy making and eating these yummy apply patishaptas!

Enjoy! :)

want to make this. was wondering if i could substitute regular AP flour for the rice flour or does it have to be used? I can't justify buying rice flour just for this purpose! Thanks so much for sharing.

author

Well, I'm pretty sure that only AP flour would work, give it a try and let me know how they turn out :)

author

Did you mean AP or rice flour? Your recipe says rice flour but i was wondering can i use plain flour?

author

Just asked my mom, she says adding rice flour is optional. You can use the plain flour for making the crepe, rice flour adds a little crunch, that's all.

sounds simple and delicious! by chance would you be able to share with us the original recipe as well, with the molasses and shredded coconut? :)

author

Thanks, it sure is delicious! The batter recipe is the same but for the filling you'll have to mix shredded coconut and a bit molasses (enough to sweeten the filling) and heat the mixture for 5-6 minutes. The rest is the same. If you do make some let me know how they turn out :)
