( Vegetarians & Vegans can use soy milk or coconut milk or plain water with a little baking powder for the batter. )
Before I start off with the recipe, first things first. A big Thank You !! to everybody for your heartfelt wishes, sweet words, praise and encouraging lines.
I am so glad I started this blog ... through which I got to know all you wonderful people out there. :-)
Today's recipe is a quick fix breakfast / brunch ..... filling as well as healthy. Instead of making the usual sweet ones, I made these salty and a little spicy. BTW I realised that the arranged shape in the first snap resembles a fish only after I uploaded the snap and saw it on full screen . :-)
Had some vegetables at hand .... threw them in. Made for a great brunch for vagabonds like us ... who leave the house at the begining of the day on every weekend and roam around like there is no tomorrow.
At least one meal of the day was at home ... that is my consolation when we hog outside the rest of the day. :-)
If you are not too inclined to use maida / APF, go ahead and use atta / wheat flour. I used eggs becuase I had some ... no problem if you don't want to.
And you can add any veggie you want to ... I used whatever I had at hand.
Need : Maida / APF, enough milk to make a batter of pouring consistency, egg/s , chopped onions, chopped / grated cabbage, grated cauliflower, chopped green chillies, frozen sweet corn, chopped coriander leaves, salt & sugar to taste, a little cooking oil.
How to : Mix everything to make a batter of pouring consistency. Add a tablespoonful of oil to the batter ..... that way it needs less oil to fry ... and does not soak up too much oil too.
Heat a non stick tawa / griddle and smear a little oil on it. Pour a ladleful of batter and spread it into a round shape .... ( well ... mine refused to be round .... so cut them up ;-) ).
They will be thickish due to the veggies ... so don't worry about spreading them too much.
Cover and cook for a while on low heat. Remove cover after a while and flip over and fry for some more time .... till they are brown on both sides.
Serve hot .... yes, they will turn soggy if kept for more than 15 minutes as the cooked veggies release water . :-)
