After getting up every morning, the first thing that hits and confuses my mind is making a unique and healthy breakfast, especially for the young ones before they start for school. This probably the very usual and common problem between all homemakers. This problem becomes bigger during weekends when my family's subtle demand is that breakfast should be something special. The one breakfast item which I usually make for my family and they pretty much like it is the pancake. It doesn't require much of preparation, is pretty fast and comes out very tasty.
2 Cups All purpose Flour (Maida)
1 Large onion (Finely chopped)
1 carrot (grated)
1 small capsicum (finely chopped)
2 green chilli (chopped)
1 tsp. turmeric powder
1 tsp red chili powder
1 tsp. garam masala powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. sugar
Coriander leaves (chopped)
1. Mix Flour and beaten eggs in a bowl to get a smooth paste. Add 1 cup of water, Turmeric powder, Red chili powder, Garam masala powder, Salt and sugar to it and mix thoroughly so as to get a smooth batter. Now add chopped onion, chillis, carrot, capsicum and coriander leaves and mix it well.The batter must be thick enough to spread well on non-stick pan. Keep the batter for about 30 minutes.
2. Heat a small amount of oil in a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Now scoop pancake batter into the in about 1/4Th cup portions and spread it uniformly. Try to keep the pancake as thin as possible. Let it cook for sometime until edges are dry and bubbles are popping up and bottoms are nicely browned(about 2 to 3 minutes). Now turn it and cook the other side until browned and crisp.
