Spinach layer pancakes- savoury pancake recipe

spinach layer savoury pancakes Weekends are most difficult days for me. I am always in a fix on what to cook for dinner. I want to just relax during the weekends and I wish there was someone to cook for me. But I find myself spending a lot of time in the kitchen , yet till dinner time , nothing is cooked.
Last sunday, I made this pancakes for dinner. They tasted great. It did not take a very long time, yet they were quite filling and a healthy one too!!!I took the recipe from Margaret fulton's wholefood cooking.

Ingredients-
Pancake batter
Wholemeal flour- 1cup
egg-1 beaten
Milk- 1 1/4 cup
Oil- 1tbspn

Filling-
Spinach- 3 cups chopped
egg- 1 beaten
Salt and pepper
(you can also add cottage cheese according to the original recipe. But I did not have it)

To finish
Grated cheese- 1/2 cup

Method-
Place the flour in a bowl and make a well in the center. Add the egg, then gradually stir in half the milk and oil . Beat thoroughly until smooth . Add the remaining milk.
Heat a pan and add few drops of oil.Pour in 1 tablespoon of the batter and tilt the pan to coat the batter evenly. Cook till the underside is brown then turn over and cook for further 10 seconds. Repeat the same with the remaining batter to make 10 to 12 pancakes.
Cook the spinach in another pan with a pinch of salt for 5 minutes. Then add the egg and cottage cheese if you are adding it. Add required salt and pepper. Mix thorougly.
Place a pancake on a heatproof plate. Spread some filling and cover with another pancake . Continue layering. Sprinkle some grated cheese on the top. Cook in a preheated moderately hot oven at 180c for 20 to 25 minutes.
Serve immediately as a main dish.

As this contains Spinach,cheese, and milk which are quite rich in calcium , I am sending it to Sangeeth's Eat healthy-Calcium rich event.
