Farali Pattice was one of my favorites growing up. When I lived in Mumbai, my mama would go to a place in Andheri called Trupti and they had the best Coconut Pattice. These fusion waffles made with coconut filling and outer layer or potatoes tastes so delicious. The best part about these are that they are not fried and they turn out so crunchy in a waffle maker. I like to serve them for appetizer for parties. You can make these for Chaitra Navratri, Navratri, Ekadashi or when you doing Vrat. You are going to love these. High alert these are addictive.

Dish History:

The history of Farali Pattice goes back to Indian fasting traditions, where people avoid certain foods. These patties became a go-to snack during those times because they’re made with ingredients like potatoes and fasting-friendly flours.

By making Farali Pattice in a waffle maker, we get a crunchy snack that’s lighter and easier to eat. Plus, we add a coconut filling for a sweet flavor. These waffles are perfect for sharing at parties or enjoying as a tasty treat anytime. It’s a fun mix of old traditions and new ideas in cooking!

Storage: 

  • Store Farali Pattice Waffles in an airtight container or resealable plastic bag.
  • Refrigerate for up to 3-4 days for short-term storage.
  • For longer storage, freeze in a single layer on a baking sheet, then transfer to a freezer-safe bag or container for up to 1-2 months. Reheat in a toaster or oven before serving.

Serving suggestions:

  • Serve Farali Pattice Waffles as a delightful appetizer or snack at parties or gatherings.
  • Pair them with a side of tangy chutneys like mint chutney or tamarind chutney for dipping.
  • Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves or grated coconut for an extra burst of flavor and visual appeal.

Alternative ingredients:

  • Sweet Potatoes: Use sweet potatoes instead of regular ones for a sweeter taste.
  • Different Fillings: Try adding nuts, raisins, or dried fruits for variety.
  • Gluten-Free Flour: If you’re avoiding gluten, you can use flours like almond or coconut.

Expert Tips:

  • Layering Technique: For layered fillings, such as coconut or nut mixtures, consider adding them between two thin layers of potato mixture to prevent them from leaking out during cooking.
  • Non-Stick Preparation: Properly grease your waffle maker with cooking spray or oil to prevent sticking and ensure easy removal of the waffles.

Farali Pattice Waffles

Farali Pattice is something I grew up eating at weddings and when I got married my mother in law taught me how to make it. She makes her jain version with raw banana but she was an expert at making the non jain version. They taste sweet, tangy and spicy and perfect to eat when you are fasting. I can eat 4-6 of them easily and can reach out for more. Checkout this easy recipe and yes these are being made in waffle maker.
