Indian savory pancakes

This is the perfect recipe to make for a fasting breakfast. There are just so many days of the fast that you can eat toasted cheese sarmies, before you start looking like a toasted sarmie.

It goes well with dhania chutney and for a stronger option you can add chopped chillies.



  • ¼ x cup gram flour.
  • ½ x cup all-purpose flour.
  • ½ x cup tasty wheat/semolina.
  • ½ x cup rice flour.
  • 1 x onion finely chopped.
  • 2 x tbsp. chopped coriander.
  • ½ x cup plain yoghurt.
  • Salt to taste.
  • 1 x tbsp. brown sugar.
  • 1 x cup of tap water.
