So these little beauties are not stuffed! Like Jhuls I love all crepes and pancakes. This version has more ingredients than I have ever seen – all the better I’m sure. Happy Fiesta Friday Rita!

Rita, the “chapats” look lovely ( just like you). Will try making them soon. Wish you were here ( in NewZealand) your food would be a rave.

Hi Avan, Ha ha – not so pretty as I used to be. I was named after Rita Hayworth by my mother!
Do make the chapats you will enjoy them.
New Zealand is an awesome land, I have a friend who is from there.
Best,
Rita
