With it being Pancake Day tomorrow, why not spice things up a bit by giving it an Asian twist by trying out a curry pancake recipe?
Traditionally, pancakes are eaten with sugar, lemon or chocolate sauce on Pancake Day, but who says you have to stick to tradition? There’s some delicious Indian-inspired pancake recipes out there for you to try, so why not give them a go this Pancake Day!
The first recipe – Indian potato pancakes with curry-lime yoghurt – is perfect as a side dish or if you’re preparing dinner for a large number of people. It will make 24 pancakes that are packed with spices including turmeric and cumin. This is a great twist on the traditional Pancake Day pancake and is a relatively quick and easy recipe, so why not add it to your list of signature dishes?
The next recipe, called simply “Curry Pancakes” serves six people, and can be served on their own or with whatever toppings or fillings you fancy! Ordinary pancakes can taste a bit bland on their own, but these curry-flavoured pancakes are anything but bland! The recipe is really quick and easy, and you only need four ingredients. So you have no excuse not to make this delicious, savoury, Asian-inspired take on pancakes tomorrow!
Got leftover curry and don’t fancy curry and rice for dinner again tomorrow? Well, why not make it into a pancake for Pancake Day?! Chicken and coconut curry pancakes are a delicious way of incorporating curry and pancakes together to make a yummy dinner that serves four. This is slightly more complicated than the other curry recipes listed, but it’s well worth the extra time and effort!
This recipe works brilliantly as an appetiser, and is a really traditional Indian dish. Puda (aka Chilla in some parts of India) is a vegetarian savoury pancake dish made with chickpea flour and semolina. This is the perfect recipe if you really want to Indianise your pancakes tomorrow! In case you aren’t sure what “cilantro” is, it’s just another word for coriander!
Hopefully these recipes will provide you with plenty of Indian inspiration so you will have a flipping great Pancake Day!
