Hola from my part of the world!!!!!

It’s been a week since I shared a new recipe.Hmm.. been busy at work.I have many recipes yet to be shared with all wonderful people who encourage me. Today’s theme is PANCAKES and I will sharing an easy and yummy recipe which will be loved by everyone!!!

pancake (or hotcakegriddlecake, or flapjack) is a flat cake, often thin and round, prepared from a starch-based batter that may contain eggs, milk and butter and cooked on a hot surface such as a griddle or frying pan, often frying with oil or butter.Most of the recipes have eggs. I was inspired by Korean Potato Pancakes also known as Gamja-jeon. I have done some variation to suit our tastebuds. My boys just went gaga over these yummy pancakes. It is filling and perfect for breakfast too. I don’t have a sweet tooth so chose to make a savoury Pancake for this week’s theme.

Salt to taste

Oil for frying

Method:

Soak channa dal for about 2.5 to 3 hours.

Remove the tough reddish leaves  and florets of the banana blossom one by one.Beneath these leaves there is a row of delicate yellow-tipped florets that can be removed and immediately soaked in butter milk  to avoid discoloration and bitterness.The florets are part of a tedious cleaning process.Pluck the matchstick-shaped pistil and soak the cleaned florets in butter milk again.

Grind and make a fine paste of Coriander ,jeera ,ginger ,green chilli and red chillies .Tranfer this mixture to a wide bowl. Now Coarsely grind channa dal and add it to the chilli coriander mixture. Now add hing, salt , multigrain powder , chopped florets and mix well. Add a tbsp of sizzling hot oil and mix well.
