Step 1

To make the crepes combine eggs, milk, flour, salt and oil in a bowl. Add three- fourth cup water and beat until smooth. Snip off the stems of the spinach leaves and blanch them.

Step 2

Drain and squeeze to remove extra moisture and then roughly chop. To make the filling, heat a pan. Add butter and when it melts, add the onion and sauté till golden.

Step 3

Place the spinach, onion, Feta cheese, Ricotta cheese, salt and pepper powder in a bowl and mix well. Heat a skillet, pour a ladleful of batter on it and cook on a medium heat, only on one side, until golden brown.

Step 4

Place some of the spinach mixture in the center and fold. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top and gratinate under a salamander till the cheese melts and turns golden in colour. Remove it and serve hot.
