Cooking is one of my passions. I like to make nutritious and tasty foods at home without using preservatives and artificial colors.
I Want Something Special for Breakfast!
This pancake batter is made of wheat flour, chickpea flour, curds, and many spices. This is a special combination that makes the pancakes tasty and flavorful.
Wheat flour potato pancakes are super healthy, smooth, delicious, and colorful. Turmeric powder, chopped fresh coriander, chili flakes, and red chili powder is responsible for the vibrant color of this yummy dish.
I love the texture of these pancakes. They are crispy outside and soft inside. They are spicy due to chili flakes and red chili powder. Ginger-garlic paste, chopped onions, carom seeds, coriander powder, and roasted cumin gives an irresistible aroma to them.
Serve them hot as is or with a pickle. Enjoy eating these soft, yummy, and filling pancakes.
