Buckwheat, doodhi and sour curds combine beautifully to make a thick delicious pancake. Having it with carrot garlic chutney is the icing on the cake.

I tried this recipe and it turned out really good. Yummy !!! But I have a question. It is not mentioned in the recipe that what should be the batter's consistency? Also how much oil is to be used? Also can the same batter be steamed as idlis? Also can we use different veggies like spinach, carrot etc.? Please let me know. Thanks.

Tarla Dalal    The batter consistency isn''t mentioned as buckwheat batter needs to be of perfect consistency or else the pancake will break while cooking. Hence after blending the recipe mentions to add 1 tbsp of water to get the perfect consistency of the batter. Veggies like cucumber, spinach or carrots can be added as per your choice and the amount of oil used in the recipe is 1/8 tsp for greasing and 1/8 tsp for cooking each pancake.
