Wholewheat banana pancake. Soft with light crisp skin. Delicious!
I’ve never made good wholewheat pancakes but today was a good day!
Breakfast was by special request from the kids and I didn’t want to defer their request like I do when it comes to pancakes.
Ingredients: • 1 ripe banana • 3 eggs • Approx. 2 to 2 1/2 cups of wholewheat flour (I am an instinctive cook so I don’t follow strict measurements) • Water to adjust consistency of the batter • Some sugar • Cinnamon powder • Vanilla extract • The smallest, tiny pinch of fruit salt
Method: • Blitz everything in a blender (and this I think was the key to the perfect batter) • Make a runny batter to the desired consistency • Heat pan • Simmer a dollop of butter and pour the pancake batter with a ladle. Flip when it’s starts to brown.
Serve drizzled with honey, peanut butter, berries anything you please.
We accompanied ours with some fried eggs on toast.
Dosa is a staple at our house. The fridge is always stocked with Idli/Dosa batter and it’s just so convenient to whip up idlis, dosas, uttapams and appams and what not!
Dosa is a savory Indian pancake roasted on a pan to a crisp if that’s how you like it. A crisp ghee roast is our all time favorite.
So traditionally, dosa batter is made at home with (uncooked) boiled rice and urad daal soaked overnight and then ground to a fine batter allowing it time to ferment and rise. However, I believe it does require a lot of practice to get it absolutely right which is why I prefer just buying it off the stores and then I’ll add raagi (finger millet) flour or assured flours to it to increase its nutritional value. For this I did the same.
On a hot pan, spread the batter with the help of a deep scooped ladle.
Sprinkle chopped spring onions and veggies of your choice
Dust the top with some chaat masala (optional)
Cook on a slow flame until golden brown and crisp
Serve warm with molaga podi (chutney powder that’s douce in sesame oil), coconut chutney or even a yoghurt dip tastes delicious.
