Chunchi Patra Pitha ( Thin Paper Crust Stuffed Pancake)

I am glad I could share this recipe through secret Indian Recipe website. This recipe ages during the time of my great grand grand mother when there was no spatula to make the recipe, they used a bunch of grass in order to make this pitha, but as the years went past, muslin cloth became very prevalant for this recipe. Enjoy this unique and traditional recipe from odisha
