How to Make Til Barfi and Pati Sapta

  • Roast sesame seeds until good aroma comes from the seeds. Keep it aside.
  • Next roast the groundnuts. Grind the roasted sesame seeds coarsely, but grind the roasted groundnuts finely. Mix them together.
  • In a thick bottom pan, make a thick sugar syrup (string consistency).
  • Mix the powdered sesame seeds and the groundnuts in the syrup. Stir continuously until it no longer sticks to the edge.
  • Spread the hot mixture on to a greased tray to about quarter inch thickness.
  • Sprinkle the grated copra on top. Cut into square or diamond shapes.
  • Method for pati sapta:
  • Mix thoroughly all the four ingredients for the filling and keep it aside.
  • 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).
  • Heat a thick bottom frying pan (about 7 inch diameter) on medium heat and spread 1/2 tsp oil.
  • Add two tbsp of batter and spread evenly.
  • When under side is done, put two tbsp of the filling, spread along the diameter leaving an inch at both ends.
  • Roll it like masala dosa (or French crepe). The Pati Sapta is ready. Serve either with kheer, jelly, or eat just plain.
  • 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.
