  • Sesame seed - 3 cups
  • Groundnuts (peanuts) - 1 cup
  • Sugar - 2.5 cup
  • Grated dry Coconut (Copra) - 1/2 cup
  • For the Roll:
  • Pan cake mix (Bisquick, or equivalent) - 2 cups
  • Milk - 1 cup
  • Egg - 1
  • Sugar - 2 tbsp
  • Baking powder - 1 tsp
  • Lemon juice - 1 tsp
  • Water - 1/2 cup
  • Oil - 2 tbsp
  • Filling:
  • Coconut flakes (sweetened) - 400 g
  • Milk powder - 1/2 cup
  • Condensed Milk - 1/2 can (200 g)
  • Cardamom powder - 1 tsp
  • How to Make Til Barfi and Pati Sapta:

    1. Roast sesame seeds until good aroma comes from the seeds. Keep it aside.
    2. Next roast the groundnuts. Grind the roasted sesame seeds coarsely, but grind the roasted groundnuts finely. Mix them together.
    3. In a thick bottom pan, make a thick sugar syrup (string consistency).
    4. Mix the powdered sesame seeds and the groundnuts in the syrup. Stir continuously until it no longer sticks to the edge.
    5. Spread the hot mixture on to a greased tray to about quarter inch thickness.
    6. Sprinkle the grated copra on top. Cut into square or diamond shapes.
    7. Method for pati sapta:
    8. Mix thoroughly all the four ingredients for the filling and keep it aside.
    9. To make the batter for roll, mix all its ingredients in a bowl using an electric blender (or egg-beater). The batter will have the consistency of dosa (or French crepe).
    10. Heat a thick bottom frying pan (about 7 inch diameter) on medium heat and spread 1/2 tsp oil.
    11. Add two tbsp of batter and spread evenly.
    12. When under side is done, put two tbsp of the filling, spread along the diameter leaving an inch at both ends.
    13. Roll it like masala dosa (or French crepe). The Pati Sapta is ready. Serve either with kheer, jelly, or eat just plain.
    14. Tips: If pancake mix is not available, it can be substituted by all-purpose flower (or maida). Sweetened coconut flakes can be substituted by a mixture of grated fresh coconut and 6 tsp of sugar.
