Fenugreek Pancake (Methi Pancake)


I had made some fritters the earlier day and there was so much batter leftover, i did not want to throw it away and neither in mood to make more fritters..so i left it in the fridge. Next day i wanted to prepare something for breakfast and there was not much options too ... then i got a idea to prepare this recipe. I modified the batter by adding methi (fenugreek) leaves,onions, channa masala and prepared this pancake. It was almost 1 cm thick and it was very yummy. It should be eaten hot to enjoy it fully.

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup chick pea flour (besan)
  • 1/2 cup kasuri methi (dry fenugreek leaves) or 3/4 cup fresh fenugreek leaves
  • 1 tsp channa masala
  • 1/2 tsp jeera powder
  • 1/4 tsp chilli powder
  • pinch of baking powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1/2 coriander powder
  • 1 tbsp oil for each pancake
  • salt to taste
Cooking Procedure:

Mix all the above ingredients except oil in a bowl.

Add water till it becomes a nice smooth flowy paste not too thick or too thin

Heat 1 tbsp in a 6 inch frying pan

Add half of the batter cover it and cook in medium flame

After 5 -7 minutes turn it and cook for another 5 min or till both sides are golden brown

Your pancake is ready, repeat the procedure for next pancake. This measurement will give u two pancakes.

Serve hot with butter topping (Optional)

I am sending this recipe to the wonderfull event Think Spice Think Fenugreek hosted by Priya started by Sunita
