Couscous veg pancake

Sundays are always meant to laze around and I am no different either. This is also a day where I like to cook different and more variant of dishes, as you can eat them at your own ease and time with no rushing for time and work. Since I am a late riser and love to sleep more in the mornings,I prefer to keep breakfast easy,fast,simple and something different on Sundays. This is a simple,complete nutrition packed breakfast and can be a good stuff in the tiffin boxes for kids. I am seriously now planning to buy a DSLR camera as I feel it's definitely required for good food pictures. Anyways the taste and the nutrition is much better than the picture posted of the dish.


1. Couscous - 1 cup
2. Semolina - 1/2 cup
3. Maida - 1/2 cup
4. Chopped Spinach - 1/2 cup 
5. Chopped carrot- 1/3 cup
6. Eno fruit salt - 1 sachet
7. Salt to taste

For the tempering

1. Mustard seeds - 2 tsp
2. Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
3. Curry leaves - 12
4. Red whole chilly -  1 no


Mix couscous,semolina,flour with some water to make a thick batter. Let it rest for 15 mins. In the meanwhile you can chop the veggies. Add some more water as the mixture will thicken,cos the couscous and semolina will swell up. Make the tempering in some oil and add to the mixture,mix with a an egg whisker. Now add eno fruit salt,salt and the veggies. Heat small amount of oil in a non stick pan,take 1 ladle of the mixture and spread with the help of a spoon. Once the pancake gets almost cooked,it should be golden brown in colour,flip and cook from other side too. To check if it has cooked properly insert a fork,it should come out clean. The flour makes it crispy outside,whereas the semolina and couscous keeps it soft inside. Serve hot with sauce or any chutney.
