Pancakes can be made in so many ways. I am here to give you the recipe for how I make them without using plain flour. I make them in many different ways myself. I do not follow recipes strictly. I cook based on what is available at the time and by instinct. I think we should all only try to understand the basics in any recipe and create it the way we want it. Because each of us are different and we all want different things from food. I for one, want lots of food in quantity and with different colours & flavours on most days. Sometimes, I want plainish food (still lots of it) but with more heat like a simple pot of Rasam with cumin, pepper and garlic. And then, there are days when I feel I could do with more sugar too. So, I don’t think it is fair for me to say any recipe that I put up here is perfect and will work for everyone. I would look in various sources for inspiration and finally make my own version. So, I hope my page serves as an inspiration for ingredients rather than foolproof recipes.
So here goes the recipe for the wholewheat & Satthu maavu/homemade Indian multigrain flour pancakes I posted on instagram this morning.
Flour- 1 and half cup (Mix and match with any healthy flours that you have like wholewheat, oatmeal or barley)
Sugar- as required
A pinch of salt
1 teaspoon of baking powder
Yoghurt- 1 tablespoon
1 Banana- mashed
Oil or melted butter-1 tablespoon
Mix dry ingredients together well. In another bowl, mix the wet ingredients alongwith the mashed banana. I use a blender for the wet ingredients. And then add the wet into the dry mixture and mix till well combined. Do not over mix.
Grease a pan and make pancakes as you would normally do. Once you start to see bubbles on top flip them over and cook till evenly browned.
Serve with maple syrup or honey and fruits.
