  • 1 kg milk
  • 1 cup of rice powder
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • Water as needed
  • 1 tablespoon of ghee
  • 1/2 cup of soybean oil


  1. Heat the milk with sugar and stir regularly so that a thick kheer forms. Kheer will be ready when the milk becomes so thick that it turns into a rich cream.

  3. Heat a frying pan. Sprinkle a bit of oil and ghee and spread the flour mixture in spirals to make a full circle. It will look like a tortilla. Allow the mixture to fry and swell. Slide the tortilla shaped patishapta pitha from side to side and then reverses the side for even frying.
  4. Place the pitha on a plate. Fill it in with 1-2 tablespoons of the kheer. Roll the pitha. It is ready.
