These little pancakes will keep you full for longer and is power packed delicious whole meal in itself with vegetables. I had them first time at my husband’s parents place.

I am often short of ideas on what to have in breakfast on weekends, something fancy, something new. And these pancakes provided the perfect breakfast for us. I am sure they will be a frequent feature in my kitchen from now on. So, the next time you can’t think of what to cook for breakfast, try them! Enjoy them with tea or coffee. Have a good day!

Ingredients

  • Semolina – 1 cup
  • Curd – 1 cup
  • Water – 1 cup
  • Green chillies – 1-2 (to taste)
  • Grated Carrot – 1/2 cup
  • Finely chopped red onion – 1/2 cup
  • Finely chopped tomato – 1
  • Finely chopped coriander leaves – 1/2 cup
  • Salt – to taste
  • Freshly crushed black pepper – 1/2 teaspoon

Method

  • Mix semolina with curd and water. Add salt and pepper. Keep aside for 15-20 minutes. The more you allow semolina to rest, easier it will be to make pancakes. I allowed my batter to sit for 30 minutes before proceeding to next step.
  • In the meanwhile, finely chop your vegetables. Add them to the semolina-curd mixture. The mixture will thicken after 15 minutes as semolina tends to expand when added with water.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet and spray with cooking oil. When the skillet is hot, reduce heat to medium and drop spoonful of batter, shape it into a circle. It should be about 1/4 inch in thickness. Let it brown on one side for a minute before flipping it over. Take care not to touch when the batter is still wet, flip only when it looks a little solidified.
  • Repeat the above steps till you have consumed all the batter. Serve hot with any beverage of you liking.
