Soft and Super easy wholewheat banana pancakes

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.

Breakfast Challenge Day 06, Multigrain Dosa

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.
