Mini pancakes are a handy snack, which can be served anytime, whether to kids returning from school or to guests at a party. And, when made with a different batter, such as this one made of moong dal and curds, it becomes a unique and memorable treat.

These Green Moong Dal and Carrot Mini Pancakes are a pretty sight to behold, with a light greenish colour, speckled with flakes of cottage cheese and grated carrot, and they also have a nice and peppy flavour, thanks to the addition of curds to the batter.

Cooking them in a mini uttapa pan is an easy way to complete large batches with minimal effort, but in case you don’t have one, you could always pour out small uttapas in a regular tava itself.

These delicious mini pancakes also make a good recipe to serve for Breakfast .
