Pancakes – Quick & Easy

editedDSC00188-COLLAGE (1).jpg

While I grew up eating breakfast only the Indian way, English breakfast did create a special place in my heart. Strangely, I am able to correlate a bit between some Indian breakfast options and their English counterparts –  Medu Wada and Savory Donuts, Dosas and Crepes, Chillas and Pancakes !

I love pancakes on the lazy Sunday mornings with a cup of hot brewed coffee. And it tastes even delicious when it is a breakfast in bed! I am sure you would agree. It is also quite easy to experiment with and quick to make for guests over breakfast. On such occasions, I typically divide my batter and flavor them differently for a variety of pancakes to suit everyone’s taste and liking.

Cooking Time – 10 minutes

Preparation Time – 5 minutes

Serves – 4

Ingredients (Serves 4)


Step 1: In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.

Step 2: Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot. You can top it with your choice of sauce, syrup, honey, fruits, nuts or jelly.

Tip: You can modify the recipe and create your flavor of pancakes. I made chocolate pancakes by adding 2 tbsp coco powder to the above batter.
