Suji Pancakes -nita Mehta recipe

         We had a lovely weekend at the beach this time. It felt so good playing in the water and building sand castles , going cycling along with my son who was equally excited like his parents to be there after a long time. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and by the time we returned home we were tired and hungry. I did not feel like cooking anything elaborate and was just nonchalantly flipping through Nita Mehtas cookbook for a quick recipe when I found this easy pancakes. They were easy to make, was ready in a couple of minutes and was quite filling too.
          As Nita Mehta says this one is a instant pancake flavoured with carom seeds(ajwain) and capsicum and made with just a few drops of oil , keeping a check on your calorie intake.
suji pancakes



Ingredients-
Pancakes
Rava/Suji- 2 cups
Curd- 2 cups or more
Baking powder- 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil- 1tsp

Topping
Onion- 1 chopped fine
Capsicum- 1 chopped in small pieces
Tomato- 1 chopped fine
Pepper- 1tsp
Salt to taste or 1/2tsp
Ajwain/carom seeds- 1tsp
suji pancakes
Method-
Combine suji and curds to make it into a thick batter of dropping consistency. Add the baking powder and salt and mix well. Add few tablespoons of water if the batter is too thick.Leave aside for 10 minutes.
      Mix all the ingredients under the ingredients heading "topping".
Now add a few drops of oil on your non stick tawa. Rub it throughout the tava using a tissue.Place the tava on a low flame. Pour some batter on the tava making a small circle of 2" to 3" diameter. The thickness should be like that of a uttapam. Pour another spoonful of batter similarly leaving some space between the two.
     When the sides appears to be cooking, spread some toppings on the pancakes. Gently press it into the batter.After the bottom is cooked, pick it up with a spatula gently and flip to cook the other side. Pour few drops of oil along the edges if necessary. When its cooked, remove from flame and serve it hot. I served it with some pickle. My son loved them having with some tomato ketchup.
