    Yep, you can have a healthy twist, and enjoy it as well.

    Made them about 4 times now, got my mixture right nearly every time. The best part, which kind of wins it for me, is that this is suitable for people, who don't like the taste/smell of eggs, but won't mind piling in that extra protein.

    The recipe originally called out for all purpose flour. To compromise a little, I decided to go with regular flour. The only available option at home was Multi-Grain Atta, used for roti/chappati, so Multi-Grain it was.


    Preparation time - 5-7 minutes

    Cooking time - 5-7 minutes

    You need -

    - 1 Cup Flour

    - 2 TeaSpoon Baking Powder

    - 2 Eggs - complete

    - 1 cup milk

    - 2 TableSpoon cooking oil or clear butter. I used Canola

    - Salt - A pinch or as per taste. If you are adding regular Amul butter, than do not use salt.

    - Sugar - 2 Tablespoons or as per taste

    Misc -

    - Vanilla essence - 1/2 Tsp - for flavor

    - Cinnamon powder - About 1/2 Tsp - Flavor again

    - Chocolate powder - For the chocolate flavor. I used Nesquik Sugar free milk mixture. Better taste.

    Steps -

    1) Use 2 bowls

    1) Bowl 1 should be slightly bigger than Bowl 2

    2) Put all the dry items (Flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, chocolate powder, cinnamon powder) together in the bigger bowl.

    3) Starting with the eggs, mix all the liquid items in the smaller bowl. Beat the eggs before adding milk or oil.

    4) If using butter, make sure it is melted and soft. Else just go healthy and use a good quality cooking oil. Add to egg mixture.

    5) Once the Eggs, milk, oil, vanilla essence are properly mixed, pour onto the dry mixture and prepare batter.

    6) A few knots are okay, but the batter should not be either too thick or too thin. Add milk if needed.

    7) Use a non-stick fry pan on low-medium flame. Pour about 40-60 gms of mixture per pancake.

    Wait till you see bubbles forming on the surface, and flip the pancake.

    Each one should take no more than 1.5 minutes.

    Once on your plate, cut into the pancake and see the depth of the outer layer. If too thin, reduce the heat. It should be defined, but not too thin, this will keep the insides from cooking properly.

    The above makes about 7-12 pancakes depending on size, good enough for 2 people.

    The bubbles are getting formed. I did the mistake of cooking the first few batches in oil. The outcome was as follows -

    But then I tried a set without any oil, and just relying on the non-stick abilities of the pan to release the pancake once done. The difference was amazing!

    They were well textured and evenly cooked. Made all the difference!

    A comparo shot.

    Hope you guys liked this quick recipe, and do give this a go sometime when you wondering what to eat.

    Pairs well with honey, nutella, tea, or cold coffee.
