"Pitha" is a winter delicacy in the land of Bangladesh. It is most often made with rice flour/milk/jaggery/coconut. Some are steamed while some are fried. There is an endless variety of "pitha' stemming from different sects of the country. This particular "pitha" called the chondro puli is a pastry shell stuffed with a jaggery+coconut concoction and then deep fried. There is another version where the shell is soft and steamed like a dumpling. The name refers to the "pitha" as being moon-shaped.
I made the chondro puli pitha for a potluck gathering of friends and instead of making the shells from scratch I used a little trick I learned from my sister. It is to use store bought uncooked flour tortillas!
