Everyone would love to start their day with a nice and tasty breakfast and if it's healthy too then all the more welcome. I am always on the lookout for something new to try and what better way to do this is by watching food channels on TV. I got this recipe from the Indian Food Channel and did not hesitate to try it out as I had all the ingredients at hand and moreover, the procedure was also not cumbersome. Besides, it looked very appealing too.
Well, to cut a long story short, it turned out extremely well and the taste was fantastic too. Try it out and see it for yourself.
|Green chillies||2 or as desired|
|Ginger||1 inch piece|
|Coriander leaves||A small bunch|
|Gram flour||1 cup|
|Water||3/4 cup or as required|
|Turmeric powder||1/2 tsp|
|Chilly powder (optional)||As required|
|Salt||As per taste|
|Baking soda /Eno||3/4 level tsp|
|Oil||For shallow frying|
- Put all the first five ingredients (cabbage, onion, green chilies, ginger and coriander leaves) in the food processor and run it for 1-2 mins or till all the ingredients are minced well. ( Alternatively, you can chop them all finely and place them in a bowl.)
- Transfer the contents from the food-processor into a bowl.
- To this mixture add gram flour, turmeric powder and salt. Mix well.
- Now add water little at a time and mix again taking care to see that no lumps are formed. The batter should be thick and not watery. At this stage, add soda/eno to the batter and gently mix it and keep aside covered for a few minutes.
- In the meantime, heat a skillet/griddle/frying pan on a medium flame. Add a little oil and spread it.
- Take a spoonful of the batter and prepare pancakes (like dosas but do not spread it thinly) and fry it on both sides with oil.
- In this way prepare pancakes using the remaining batter.
- Serve hot with ketchup or any chutney of your choice.
Preparation time: 15 mins
Cooking time : 15 mins
Makes : 9 pancakes (roughly 4-5 inches each in diameter)
- These pancakes are soft and hence allow them to cook properly on one side before flipping.
- The green chilies that I used were quite pungent and hence I omitted the red chilly powder. You can use it and adjust according to your preference.
- These pancakes taste fine even without any chutney/ketchup.
- Ideal for breakfast.
