These green peas pancakes are quite an interesting alternative to the traditional south indian uttapa, which is commonly had for breakfast. This tasty snack has a high folic acid and fibre content, making it very nutritious. Plus, it is also easy to make without the need for any fermentation. Always keep some fruit salt handy for such quick-fix delights.

3/4 cup boiled green peas
1/2 cup rice flour (chawal ka atta)
1/2 cup besan (bengal gram flour)
1/4 tsp turmeric powder (haldi)
1 tbsp finely chopped green chillies
salt to taste
1/2 tsp fruit salt
2 tsp oil for greasing and cooking
1/4 cup grated low-fat paneer (cottage cheese)
1/2 cup grated carrot
1/4 cup finely chopped tomatoes
salt to taste

  1. Grind the green peas in a blender to a coarse paste, using very little water.
  2. Transfer the paste to a bowl, add the rice flour, besan, turmeric powder, green chillies, salt and 1¼ cup water and mix well to make a batter of pouring consistency.
  3. Just before making the pancakes, add the fruit salt and mix gently.
  4. Heat a tava (griddle) and grease it lightly with oil.
  5. Pour a small spoonful of the batter on the tava and spread it to make a 50mm (2”) diameter circle.
  6. Sprinkle a little paneer, carrots and tomatoes over it and smear a little oil along the edges of the pancake.
  7. When cooked on one side, turn it over and cook on the other side for a few seconds.
  8. Repeat for the remaining batter and topping to make more mini pancakes.
  9. Serve hot.

Handy tip:

  1. You can make 6 to 7 pancakes at a time.
