Vegetable and Mix Flour (Bengal Gram,Rice) Pancake

This recipe is healthy as well as a finger food for babies, at the same time it can be enjoyed with people of all ages. Plus it is gluten free as I have added only gram flour and Rice Flour to it. Rice flour is added to add a little crunch to it. I have made pancakes as well as pakodas out of it. So it's up to you what you want. So here goes the recipe:








Ingredients


I added the ingredients without measurement but I tried to put them in quantity below.


  • 3/4 Cup Cabbage finely grated
  • 3/4 Cup Zucchini finely grated. 
  • 1/2 Cup Onion finely grated. (optional can be replaced by any vegetable)
  • 1/2 inch ginger finely chopped or grated
  • 1-2 garlic cloves finely chopped or grated (optional)
  • 1/4 cup Rice Flour
  • 1/2-3/4 Cup Gram Flour / Chick Pea Flour / Besan
  • Green Chillies Grated as per taste
  • Red Chilli powder as per taste
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Jeera (Cumin seeds)
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Garam Masala powder
  • Salt as per taste (If you do not give salt to baby first remove a small batch)
  • Ghee/Clarified Butter (I use this for baby food instead of oil)
  • Oil for shallow and deep frying

One can add freshly chopped coriander to give it more flavor.


Preparation


  1. Mix all the above ingredients and make a dough. Just press the vegetables in your hand to release some water if required. One should be able to form balls out of the mixture. If there is more moisture add more Gram Flour / Chick Pea Flour / Besan (Do not add Water)





For Pakodas:

  1. Make small balls out of it around 1 inch diameter. (I directly put it in hot oil and hence they are not uniform).
  2. If there is more moisture at the end sprinkle a little Gram Flour / Chick Pea Flour / Besan 
  3. Add the balls in hot oil.

  4. Deep fry the balls on medium heat until golden brown.

  5. Serve yummy hot pakodas with tomato ketchup.

For PanCakes:

  1. Heat a pan and add very little (1/4 teaspoon) Ghee/Butter/Oil. 
  2. Take a dollop of mixture and press it against the pan to form a round pancake. One can use oil to grease the fingers or simply wet your fingers in water and gently dab the mixture to form a pancake.

  3. Once the top becomes dry or underside is cooked add a bit of Ghee/Butter/Oil and flip.

  4. Cook on the other side until golden brown.

  5. Serve hot with tomato ketchup or cut into bit size pieces for the baby.

Jowar(Sorghum) Pancake

So after a long time I am blogging. Was missing my blog and recipes to try but not getting enough time. Anyways not going to cry about it any further. 

So Now I am trying new food and flavors for my baby.  I wanted a finger food so that my baby can enjoy on her own, something new (as my baby does not want to eat the same twice :-(( )and obviously healthy and quick to make. 

So I tried a simple Jowar(Sorghum) Pancake. Simple and easy ingredients, just added water, tomato puree (or very very finely chopped) and lastly topped with cheddar cheese to give some flavor. It is a good finger food for your little one to munch especially the children's who like to explore on their own. Give it a try and I am sure your baby will like it and so do the children's and adults. So here goes the recipe...........




Ingredients

Below quantity will make 2 small size pancakes
  • 1 Tablespoon of Jowar Flour.
  • 1-2 Tablespoon of luke warm water
  • 1/2 - 3/4 Tablespoon of Tomato Puree or Chopped Tomatoes
  • a pinch of salt (optional if you do not give salt to baby)
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese 
  • Ghee (Clarified Butter) / Butter for shallow frying. (one can use oil, but I prefer Ghee/Butter for baby)

Preparation

  1. Soak the Jowar along with the salt in enough water to make a thick consistency batter. (Sorry for the picture not clear enough)
  2. Set aside for 5-7 mintues for the Jowar to soak. 
  3. Add the tomato puree or chopped tomatoes to it and adjust the consistency. We require a medium consistency batter not too thin, not too thick. 

  4. Heat a pan and add around 1/4 teaspoon of Ghee or Butter.
  5. Add a tablespoonful of batter and spread it to around 2 inch in diameter
  6. Let it cook on medium flame. 
  7. Once the top looks dry apply a little ghee and flip it and cook the other side until golden brown.

  8. Flip again, top it up with shredded cheese if you like and let it cook for another minute.
  9. Cut it into 4 pieces or smaller for your baby to indulge.
