Instructions

  8. Once both the sides are golden brown, turn off the heat. Cover the pan with a plate. Invert it to turn the pancake out on the plate.
  9. Cut the pancake with a knife to your desired shape. Serve it hot with tomato sauce.

    This sounds very tasty. I like the sound of your recipe very much. It reminds me of a type of cabbage pancake that my mother used to make when I was a child. I loved her pancakes and I think I would love yours, too.
