Quick and Easy Dinner

Friday is about to come to an end. How relieved am I...... The past 2 weeks have been too hectic for me. Was terribly busy with my job. The next 2 days, I'll be spending my precious time with my little daughter and my tiny kitchen. As for tonight, initially wanted to make some rotis but then, it´s time consuming. Friday is the day that I'm on minimum energy level. So, I wanted something really quick and easy to do. After wondering a while, got the idea to make some pancakes instead but then, pancakes are too light. To make it a bit heavier, I added shredded potatoes. Also mixed baking powder to give the pancake a fluffy texture.

Potatoe Pancake

What do we need:

1 cup plain flour
1 cup shredded potatoes
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp baking powder
butter or olive oil for the pan
salt to taste

How do we do it:

In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt together. Then, make a hole in the middle. Pour in the milk while stirring vigorously with a whisk until it becomes a smooth batter without lumps.

Peel & grate the potatoes and straight away add them into the mixture.

Heat a non-stick pan and grease it with a little butter or olive oil. Pour a ladleful of the of the batter. Spread it out to a prefered size. Cook for 2 - 3 minutes. Flip it over and continue cooking for another minutes.

bdsn: Initially, the batter would be a bit thick but then, after mixing the grated potatoes, the water from the potatoes is enough to create a perfect consistency.

priya: Thank u very much.
