Zucchini-Cheese Pancakes / Savoury Pancake Recipe

Pancakes are always quick-fix for morning breakfast and kids preferred to have them. Even I prefer pancakes once a week in my breakfast or brunch. But the better-half doesn't like it so we avoid it on a weekly basis and include this once in a month or sometimes when he is on tour. Normally we are used to with the sweet pancakes however today I am sharing a recipe of savoury pancake.

People who do not prefer to eat too much sweet and avoid eating pancakes for this reason now they can try this savoury pancake recipe. Since I entered into this virtual world I have started experimenting more on varieties of food items. I picked up Zucchini as I read it  is a very good source of protein, vitamin and minerals. So I decided to include in our diet and thought of including in pancakes and while searching I landed to this page. Zucchini Cheese pancake is a very good breakfast, brunch or snack option for kids as well as adults. I loved the taste of this savoury pancake. Next time I will try some other recipe with zucchini. I added cheese here to make it more kid's friendly but you can avoid it.

Kheer Malpua

Earlier I have shared the recipe of Malpua which is quite easy. Today I am sharing the recipe of Kheer Malpua. Instead of thick milk, kheer is being used in the preparation of kheer malpua. Process of making kheer is the extra step in this recipe. I have used refined oil for frying this you can also use desi ghee to enhance the taste. Addition of little bit milk powder also gives a very good taste to this Indian Pancake. While frying the malpuas you have to be little careful otherwise they might get burnt. Try this kheer malpua during festive season.

Kheer Malpua
Milk - 11/2 litre

Maida - 4 tablespoon

Suji/Semolina - 1/2 tablespoon

Fennel seeds 1 teaspoon

Milk Powder - 1 tablespoon

Sugar - 1/2 cup

Black Peppercorn - 1/2 teaspoon, crushed

Refined oil for frying

Sugar Syrup 

Sugar - 3/4 cup
Water - 1 cup


How to make Sugar Syrup

 Sugar syrup - Take a cup of water in a pan and add 3/4 cup sugar and heat little to dissolve the sugar. Check the consistency of sugar syrup. If required add more sugar to make one thread consistency syrup. Add a pinch of saffron to give a nice color into it.

Boil the milk till it reduces to 1/3rd of its quantity adding sugar (Kheer). Take maida in a bowl and add the suji. Now slowly add the reduced milk or kheer into it to make a smooth consistent mixture. Add little milk powder, fennel seeds and crushed black peppercorn into the mixture and mix well,  Now heat oil (or ghee) in pan and pour a ladle full of batter to form pan cake. Fry both the sides until it takes brown color. When both the sides are done, take it out and immerse in sugar syrup, wait for ten minutes and serve it. You can sprinkle little milk powder on the top of the malpuas.

Cinnamon flavoured Banana Pancake/ Banana Pancake / Use of Leftover Banana / Use of Overripe Banana

Banana Pancake is a healthy breakfast option especially for a fussy eater or toddler. Overripe bananas are the best used to make this heathy dish. We often have one or two leftover bananas in our fruit basket. When the yellow skin of the banana turns little brown, normally we try to avoid having it. However, we can prepare a very good pancake using them as they are easily smashed and mix well in the pancake batter which is difficult to do using fresh ones. I have added a lovely cinnamon and tutti fruity twist into it.

Cinnamon flavoured Banana Pancake/ Banana Pancake / Use of Leftover Banana / Use of Overripe Banana

Serve: 4 to 6 numbers
Overripe Banana - 2
Flour - 11/2 cup
Baking Powder - 1/3 teaspoon
Egg - 2
Cinnamon Powder - 1 teaspoon
Milk - 1 to 2 cup
Sugar - 1/3 cup
Butter - 1 tablespoon
Salt - 1/2 teaspoon
Tutti fruity - 2 to 3 teaspoon

Peel the banana skin and mash them well in a bowl.

 Take another bowl and mix all the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt sugar, cinnamon powder) together. Now add mashed banana and beaten egg to this mixture. Stir very well so that there will not be any lumps. Now make up the consistency of the batter  by adding milk slowly into the batter. Next add the tutti fruity.  Heat a non-stick pan in gas and add little butter. Rotate the pan to spread the butter and put a ladle full of batter in the pan. Rotate the pan once again to spread the batter round shaped.

 Cook for 5-8 minutes. When one side is done, turn up the other side and cook similarly. Serve it as breakfast or tiffin.
