Here’s an interesting twist that makes pancakes healthy! Rather than refined flour, we have used whole wheat flour to make the pancakes, and served them with a stuffing of dates, raisins and nuts.
The stuffing gives a wonderfully succulent mouth-feel and natural sweetness to the whole wheat pancakes, making it a delicacy to savour!
The Dates Pancake is low in salt, and also loaded with nutrients like iron from dates and omega-3 fatty acids from walnuts, which makes it a good dish for those with high blood pressure.
It is quite filling, and so it is enough to have just a single serving of one pancake. As a variant, you can also try stuffing the whole wheat pancakes with stewed apples.
- Combine the whole wheat flour, salt and 1¼ cups of water in a deep bowl and whisk well. Keep aside.
- Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and grease it with a little melted butter.
- Pour ¼ cup of the batter over it and cook using very little melted butter till it turns light brown in colour.
- Turn the pancake around and cook on the other side as well.
- Repeat steps 2 to 4 to make 5 more pancakes. Keep aside.
- Divide the stuffing into 6 equal portions. Keep aside.
- Place a pancake on a clean dry surface, put a portion of the stuffing on one side of the pancake and fold to make a semi-circle.
- Repeat step 2 to stuff 5 more pancakes.
- Serve immediately.
