Semolina Pancakes

I always think of having healthy breakfast atleast thrice a week. My kidoo don’t eat much of vegetables. So i always have to change the shape and appearance of vegetables in order to have her intake of veg complete. We regularly make these semolina pancakes for which i always blend all the vegetables along with suji .This is one of the easiest Chila recipes. Semolina is good for health too. We usually call it Suji or sooji or rawa. Also this recipe is 100% oil free so health content is very high in this. Also the best part is that I dont use yogurt to make these. First of all i would like to share with you the health benefits of Semolina.

Tips :

  • You can press chopped vegetables on the batter once it is poured in pan. It will become like uttapam
  • I have skipped adding curd so this cheel will not become soggy.
  • Its 100% oil free. But if you think it will stick to your pan then you can put a drop of oil and rub it off on whole pan with the help of tissue paper.
  • To make it even more crispier you can add a spoonful of Rice flour too.
