    Not your regular breakfast pancake...

    I love pancakes, and it's good to know that there are many variations of the pancake in Indian cuisine. This particular recipe was introduced to me by my sweet hubby who would make it for breakfast on a lazy Sunday morning. It is now one of my personal favourites! Sooji Chila (Semolina Pancakes) Ingredients: 1 cup sooji (semolina) a pinch of salt a pinch of red chili powder 1-2 chopped green chilies 1 tbsp finely chopped onion oil for frying Method: Mix all the ingredients expect oil in a big bowl. Add water to make a smooth batter. Spray a little oil on a non-stick pan and 2-3 tablespoons of the batter. Spread out the batter on the pan to form a circular shape. Fry till pancake is done on both sides, adding a little more oil to get a crispy texture.

    Enjoy with mint-coriander chutney!

    Mmmmmm.... I don't know if my wife will be happy about this, but it sounds pretty yummy to me. I have a few questions:

    1) Would regular semolina flour work, or should I head down to my neighborhood Indian market to pick up some sooji?

    2) About how much water am I looking at? Should the consistency be about the same as my regular pancake batter?

    Thanks for a great site! I hope to be back frequently :)

    Hi Tom!

    Thanks for stopping by! :o)

    Semolina is just the English name for Sooji. So your semolina flour would be just fune.

    yea..the batter should be about the same as that of pancake, maybe a slightly bit thinner, if you wish!

    Do drop by again! :o)

    Hi Meena--I love Indian cuisine, but I'm waaaaay too intimidated to try it...these pancakes sounds interesting! I would love to participate in your rasoi event, but I think I'll just try to learn from the others that are going to participate....

    Why does every one accept the cliche that Americans have pancakes on breakfast? I mean, I hate them"! and I don't think this one here is gonna make me change my mind about it.
