Gajorer Pattisappte (carrot Pancake)
I am not very fond of sweets but I like trying new desserts. Pattishapte is a common Bengali sweet recipe. My batch mate in Presidency College, Parmita was the person, who introduced me to this recipe. Her Mother used to make awesome Pattishapte. Unlike the traditional way of making the batter with rice flour, she used to make the batter of sooji (Semolina) and hence it was a quick formula. The pur or filling is usually made by combining grated coconut and jaggery. Here in this recipe I avoid Coconut and jaggery and replace it with grated carrots and sugar to match my North Indian taste. The addition of Condensed milk over adds to the flavor, makes it more soft and more sinful!
