Today is a very special day for my family as my older son turns another year older. We have planned to spend some quality time with him and make memories. I decided to start the day with his favorite breakfast. Lentils & spring onion pancake can be whipped in a jiffy and is filling too. Mixed lentil paste combined with spices and spring onion makes a delicious and flavorful pancake batter. Try it to believe it.
