Mango Pancakes 

Ingredients:

  •  3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat or ragi flour
  • 3/4 cup milk & a little more incase your batter lacks the consistency of regular pancakes
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 mango chopped into small bite sized pieces

Method:

Take the two flours and baking soda and mix together.

 

Beat the egg and vanilla essence with a fork and add it to the flour.

 

Now add the sugar to this mixture. Slowly, pour the milk into this and keep mixing.

 

Let this batter stand for at least 30 minutes. Then mix it and see if it is of a pour-able consistency.

 

I sometimes add a tablespoon or olive oil or softened butter to the mix so that it doesn’t stick to the non-stick pan.

 

Now, take a ladle and pour a ladle-full of batter onto a non-stick pan. When the batter seems to be a little set add the bite-sized pieces of Alphonso or any mango that you have at hand. Carefully turn the pancake and press gently on the other side and let it cook for another 2 minutes or till the pancake is nice and browned and you don’t see any runny batter around (It is similar to cooking an Uttapam but cooks faster).

 

Serve your pancakes with maple syrup or honey or any other syrups and jams you have on hand. You can enjoy this for brunch or for dessert with some whipped cream or ice-cream!
