FromFamilyNFriends: Savory Whole Wheat Pancakes

Print  Friendly and PDF
Who doesn't love pancakes?I remember the good old days when I used to religiously visit a nearby IHOP for a Pancake Fix. Pancakes/Flapjacks/Wheat Dosa are so versatile and can be made either sweet or savory. This is a recipe that was given to me by my cousin V who knows his way around the kitchen. Its so healthy and wholesome and an excellent choice for a weekend brunch or a breakfast.Sending this to the "Healthy Fast Food" event hosted @ Food for 7 stages of life.
  • Whole Wheat - 2 cups
  • Yogurt - 3 tbsp, beaten
  • Cracked Pepper - 1 tsp
  • Red Onions - 2 , medium, fine diced
  • Serrano Pepper(Hot Green Chilli) - 1, diced (optional)
  • Carrot - 1, peeled and shredded
  • Cilantro - a handful, finely chopped
  • Warm Water
  • Salt for taste
  • Oil - 2 tbsp
  • Olive oil Spray
  • In a bowl, add the whole wheat, salt and pepper. To it add the beaten yogurt, warm water and mix until it reaches the pancake consistency which is slightly runny.Check for taste. Add more salt or pepper if needed.
  • Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a skillet and add the onions and serrano pepper(if using). 
  • Saute the onions until browned. Add it to the pancake batter and let it sit for 10-15 minutes.
  • Grease the pancake griddle with Olive oil spray.
  • Pour a ladle-full of batter and spread it around.Just before flipping sprinkle a little shredded carrot and cilantro.
  • Brown the pancake on both sides and remove from griddle.
  • Serve hot with thick Yogurt or a choice of chutneys.
Makes ~8 pancakes.

Note: To Indianize this recipe, add mustard seeds, chopped curry leaves to the skillet prior to adding onions and the chilli.
