Good Morning MALAYSIA, well it is one of my lazy weekend today. Last night I planned with the children to have Dosa an Indian Breakfast Menu, but short of ingredients so I deviated to this Indian Savoury Pancake. I found this recipe from the net. It was one of the submission in the National Pancake Day Event. I couldn't remember the owner of this recipe's name however this is a fantastic pancake. If you are tired with the sweets one is is perfect especially if you have left over curry or sambal.

So my Sunday breakfast today are this Savoury Indian Pancake and the usual Toast and Jam. Here's the recipe for this Savoury Indian Pancake.

Have a wonderful weekend.!!!!

Indian Savory Pancakes (Semolina and Yogurt Pancakes)

Makes 12 pancakes
Recipes Notes: Typical Indian savory pancakes are not fluffy like the usual pancakes. Instead, they are dense and have most flavors when enjoyed right out the griddle with some hot green chutney or a sweet tomato chutney.
1 ½ cups Semolina (Cream of Wheat)
1 ¼ cups nonfat yogurt (you can also use low fat or full fat, if you prefer)
½ cup finely chopped red onions
½ cup grated carrots (You can use any vegetable you like)
¼ cup finely chopped cilantro
1 tsp whole cumin seeds
1 tsp minced thai green chili peppers (De-seed the peppers if you don’t like them hot)
Approximately ½ cup water
Salt to taste
Oil spray (I use oil spray to oil my non stick griddle because these pancakes need little to none oil )
1. Mix all the ingredients together except for oil. The batter should be of same consistency as of the usual pancake batter, so add water slowly while mixing thoroughly.
2. Heat a pancake griddle. Griddle should not be extremely hot otherwise pancakes will burn very quickly, so I start with high heat for a few minutes and then turn it to medium.
3. Start by nicely oiling the griddle with the spray when pouring batter for the first time.
4. Pour a ¼ cup of batter. With the back of a flat spoon spread the batter and veggies forming a circle. Cover with a lid.
5. Let it cook for about 10-15 seconds. When the top of the poured batter is all dry, spray a little oil on top and flip.
6. Press the pancakes with the help of a spatula and moving them in circles for a few seconds while it cooks slowly. A well-cooked Pancake should be golden brown from both sides.
7. Second time on the griddle doesn’t really need any oiling, especially if it’s a nonstick one so I omit that step after a couple batches, but it really depends on the type of griddle you use. So use oil accordingly but see that the pancakes don’t look oily or else they won’t come out soft.

SELAMAT PAGI MALAYSIA and Asalamualaikum semua, semoga pagi minggu ini menceriakan anda semua. Menu pagi minggu ini ialah Savoury Indian Pancake dan Roti Bakar. Cadangnya nak buat Dosa (Tosai) tapi kurang bahan jadi saya buat pankek ni. Resipi saya dapat dari net, Savoury Indian Pancake adalah salah satu entry sempena National Pancake Event. Saya tertarik dengan resipinya sebab resipi ini banyak mengingatkan saya pada resipi "Roti Bawang" arwah umi. Ya la masa kecil-kecil dulu selalu makan roti bawang (lempeng bawang) dengan kari atau asam pedas semalam.

Lebih kurang sama, cuma dalam resipi ini dicampurkan dengan tepung semolina. Memang sedap ditambahkan dengan yogurt dan jintan manis. Kalau ada kari lebihan semalam memang tepat sekali. Resipi ini sudah masuk dalam list menu saya dan rasanya akan lebih kerap membuatnya apabila ada lebihan kari atau asam pedas semalam. SELAMAT MENCUBA dan SELAMAT BERSANTAI DI HUJUNG MINGGU INI.
