Oats & Split Green Moong Chillas/Pancakes#Foodieextravaganza

A Happy and Prosperous New Year to all my friends.
The month of December was only parties, weddings etc..
enjoyed food and drinks to the hilt. Now it's  time to start a healthy life style, hope I can maintain this. 

Starting 2019 with a healthy breakfast dish for Foodie Extravaganza. Since the theme for this month is Oatmeal, our host is Wendy Klik . Made these fabulous, healthy pancakes that are high in protein, low in calories and filling.

1 Cup Split Green Moong Dal
1 Cup Oats
3 Big Cloves Garlic
2 Green Chillies
½ Teaspoon Grated Ginger
1/3 Cup Rice Flour - * see notes
Salt to taste
Water as required

For garnishing

Grated Cheese or Cottage Cheese - optional
Chutney or Sauce for Serving

Wash and soak the split moong dal overnight or for at least 4 hours. 
Drain the water and then grind it with rest of the ingredients using water just necessary to make a coarse paste. 
This batter should be thicker than a pancake batter.
 Heat a pancake pan and brush it with oil, take a ladle full of batter spread it into a thin chilla / pancake. Drizzle little oil on it. 
When it cooks it one side then flip it and cook for a minute ( this is optional). 
Fold it into a triangle and serve with chutney or sauce . Garnish with grated cheese.
These were fabulous, healthy and are high in protein.
My Notes
If you do not have rice flour at hand then soak 2 tablespoons heaped of rice grains along with the dal.
Do not brush too much of oil on to pan or else you will not be able to spread the batter.

Besan Ka Cheela / Gramflour Crepes / Dosa - Gluten Free & Vegan

Besan Cheelas are simple spiced gram flour pancakes from Indian cuisine. Cheelas / Crepes or Pancakes  of chickpea flour are know as Besan ka cheela/Gramflour crepes/Kadalamaavu Dosai.
Isn't it interesting that crepes / pancakes in India are referred to as, cheela's in Gujarat, Rajasthan and in the North and in the South they are call it dosai or dosa, since it's very similar to dosa only the names are different . But unlike the South Indian dosa,  there is no soaking of grains,  grinding and fermentation process.  This is an instant cheela / dosa recipe.
This is a simple and instant crepe/ pancake. Since it's made to chickpea flour in the south is called Kadalamaavu, hence it's Kadalmaavu Dosai. Its quick and very easy to make and can be made with readily available ingredients in your kitchen pantry. Cheela's can be enjoyed with a chutney or ketchup or any sauce of your choice.  It's quick and easy to make Indian breakfast or great evening snack accompanied with a cup of tea or coffee.
1 Cup Besan
2 Tablespoon Rice flour
3/4 Teaspoon Chilly powder
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
A pinch of Baking soda

A pinch Asafoetida
Green chilly  - finely chopped 
Salt to taste
2 Tablespoon Coriander leaves - finely chopped
1 Spring Onion - finely chopped
1 Tomato - deseeded, finely chopped
Oil as required


Take all the dry ingredients in a bowl, to this add the chopped coriander leaves, green chilly, the spring  onion and tomato together and and mash it lightly with your hand. Gradually add water and mix it to a slightly thin batter (The batter should not be too watery or thick).
Keep the dosa griddle on a medium flame, grease it with a teaspoon of oil. Pour the batter in the center and spread it. Drizzle a teaspoon of oil and cook it for a minute.Now flip the dosa to the other side and cook it for a minute, add another tsp of oil. Remove it from the griddle.
Serve it immediately with coriander or mint chutney. 
My Notes
One important point while preparing this, it should be cooked in low medium flame until it becomes slightly crispy. Otherwise, you will get the raw taste of besan which you will not like.

These  should be served hot and crisp.

Soft & Spongy Poha Dosas #BreadBakers

This month Bread Bakers are celebrating Pancakes, our host is, Wendy

Today is Pancake or Fat Tuesday – which is also known as Pancake Day. Pancake Day is celebrated a day before Ash Wednesday.  A day when Christians begin their Lenten Season. I,  remember when we were young, during lent no sweets  or meat dishes used to made or eaten, now of course these are not strictly followed. 

We East Indians also call this day Introz Day , with pancakes a dish of liver or meat  is also prepared, since after this day no meat or sweets are eaten, during lent,  which is still  observed by majority  East Indians.

Already posted a Eggless & Vegan Pancakes  recipe, decided to make something different. Made these soft and spongy Poha / Beaten Rice Dosas.  These are made for breakfast and served with Fresh Tender Coconut Meat Chutney.


2 Cup Idli Rawa
1 Cup Level Poha / Beaten Rice
½ Teaspoon Fenugreek seeds
200 Grams Fresh Yogurt
3 Cups Water
¼ Teaspoon Soda - bi - carb
Salt to taste
For the Fresh Tender Coconut Meat Chutney

1 Tender Coconut Meat
2 Green Chillies
2 Tablespoons Fresh Yogurt
½ Teaspoon Cumin seeds
¼ Teaspoon Salt
A Handful of Coriander Leaves
A few Mint leaves

Make Buttermilk by churning the yogurt and water together.
Soak the idli rawa and fenugreek seeds iin buttermilk. Keep it covered for 4 - 5 hours.
Soak the poha in buttermilk also in a another bowl. Keep it covered for 4 - 5 hours.

First grind Poha buttermilk to a fine paste and then add rawa and grind and run it for just a minute.  This batter should be a little coarse. Allow to ferment overnight. The next morning, add salt and soda, mix well. Keep it aside for 10 minutes.
Heat a cast iron pan or a non stick pan. Brush it with oil.
Pour  ladles of batter and do not spread the batter . 
Cover with a lid and let is cook on medium low flame for 2 to 3 minutes. 
Take off the lid and sprinkle oil all over the it and the sides.
Now flip it if you wish, I did it. Cook for just for a minute or two till light golden spots appear. 
Take it on to a serving plate. Likewise prepare the rest of the dosas.
In the meanwhile as the dosas are being made, lets make our chutney.
Add all the ingredients into a small chutney jar and grind to a fine paste using no water, if necessary add a teaspoon or more of yogurt. It done so simple .. ins't it ! 
Pour this into a serving bowl and enjoy with soft and spongy dosas.
My Notes
There is no urad dal in this dosa. The fermentation is of this batter is the butter milk. So do not discard the buttermilk whiles grinding. If you find that the butter milk is not sufficient for soaking or grinding add little more water.

Four Pillars of Faith go into making of Pancakes today:
Egg for creation
Flour for sustenance of life
Milk for Purity
Salt for wholesomeness
Happy Pancake Tuesday

Potato Latkes - Jewish Pancakes #BreadBakers

The Jewish call Potato Pancake - Latkes which are a must for Hanukkah, which are meant to symbolize good luck . These are addictive, delicious and mouth melting pancakes. Made mini pancakes using a ring mold, hence you can see them same in size. 
 This month’s Bread Bakers host Mayuri Jikoni choose the theme Pancakes. 

Makes: 8 to 10 small pancakes
1.1/2 Cups Mashed Potatoes
2 Tablespoons scallions- chopped green and white parts
2 Eggs - lightly beaten
1/3 Cup All Purpose Flour

1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper powder
Oil as required for pan-frying
For Serving
1 Cup Sour cream / 
Crème fraîche - Homemade
1 Cup Apple Sauce - Homemade


First we make the sour cream, so that it can be chilled in the refrigerator.

To Make Sour Cream / Crème fraîche

200 Ml Fresh Cream
1 Tablespoon Lime Juice

Mix them all to get and keep it aside at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes then refrigerate till ready to serve.  Sour cream / Crème fraîche is ready.

For the Pancake Mix

In a large bowl, mix  the mashed potatoes, scallions, egg and  flour until combined.Heat 3 to 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large pan over medium heat. Place the ring molds and drop spoonfuls of the  mixture,  into the hot oil, slightly flatten the latkes into the oil with the back of your spoon so they are evenly thick.  When the pancake is done on one side lift the ring mold and then flip and cook the other side.

Fry the pancakes, in batches, until they're golden brown and crispy on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes. Add more oil to the pan as needed between batches. Transfer the pancakes to a paper towel-lined plate. 

Serve the potato pancakes  with sour cream or  apple sauce,  garnished with additional chopped scallions.  Enjoy these delicious pancakes.

My Notes
If the  pancake mixture looks too dry and isn't holding together, add one more egg. If it looks too wet, add more flour, a tablespoon at a time, until the mixture is thick.

Corn Panki / Corn Pancakes

This is a traditional Gujarati breakfast dish, a small corn pancake cooked in between banana leaves very healthy and a complete breakfast dish  as it uses very little oil. The   aroma of fresh banana leaves which make this pancake taste divine. This  is must tried  monsoon dish,  in this  season you will find  heaps of golden corn in the market.

This is so quick and easy to prepare, that from start to finish it takes around 30 minutes.

These were made for guest that came for breakfast.  They enjoyed these with Coriander Chutney or Mint Chutney


8 Tender Corncobs
1 Cup Semolina
1/2 Cup  Rice flour
1 Tablespoon Grated Ginger
6 Green chillies - finely chopped
1 Cup Fresh Curd - beaten
4 Tablespoon Coriander leaves - finely 
Salt according to taste
A sachet Fruit Salt
A Tablespoon Oil
Banana leaves  as require cut in long  pieces 
Desi Ghee for brushing the pan


Take Corncobs remove the skin, wash nicely, take out corn kernel and coarsely grind them in a mixer with ginger, and green chillies.

Take the ground corn out on to a bowl, add  rice flour, semolina, curd, salt, chopped coriander and  oil. Mix all ingredients very well  and keep aside for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes add fruit salt to this and mix well, the batter will become light and fluffy.

Take banana leaf apply little oil on one side of banana leaf
Take a a spoon of batter and spread evenly on greased side of banana leaf, fold the  banana leaf.

Heat a  non-sticky pan brush it with desi ghee and place two or three panki  according to the size of  pan.  Cover it with the lid for 2 - 3 minutes.  Take of the lid and cook on both sides till you see that the leaf as turned brown or till panki is cooked.

Repeat the same process with rest of the batter.
Serve hot with chutney and  a cup of tea or coffee .

My Notes:
If rice flour is not available you can use besan / chickpea flour.
Make sure the batter is in proper consistency , it should be thick to spread.
If you do not get banana leaf, not to worry, wash the leaves of corn and dry them, spread the batter on one leaf and cover with the other leaf. 
Can use oil instead of desi ghee to brush the pan.

Sending these to  Foodie Extravaganza {Party} · Hosted by Caroline Williams  the theme for this month  is Pancakes.  Thank your Caroline for choosing such a wonderful theme.
