How to make Paatishapta

- Heat a non-stick frying pan, smear a little ghee, pour a ladle (approx. 3 tbsp) of the batter and quickly swirl the pan around to spread evenly.
- When it turns golden brown, place a little of the MILKMAID - coconut mixture at one end. Roll the crepe over to the other side. Remove from pan and serve hot.
