This month’s Bread Bakers host Mayuri of Mayuri’s Jikoni wanted us to make pancakes. And it can be a regular one or from any part of the world. When I was browsing through the blogs, I found that there are so many types of pancakes around the world and even our dosas come under the same category. I was looking for easy recipes and as it involves maida, I wanted to make a small batch. I saw the Greek version of pancakes usually served with honey. When I read the recipes, I found there were two recipes for the tiganites. One is like the usual pancake made with flour, milk and eggs but the other one was made with yeast and had no eggs. So I chose to make the yeasted tiganites.
I was about to use honey and nuts for topping when my daughter insisted that she wnated chocolate sauce for topping. So I made a pancake sauce to go with the pancakes. The pancakes were so much like maida dosai. Even my daughter felt the same and she loved the chocolate sauce more than the pancakes. These are not like the fluffier pancakes. Think it on lines with soft, slightly crisp maida dosa which is thinner than normal pancakes.
Makes 8 Pancakes
All Purpose Flour / Maida – 1 cup
Instant Yeast – 1/2 tsp
Salt – 1/4 tsp
Sugar – 1/2 tsp
Warm Water – 1 cup + a little extra to make batter
For The Hot Chocolate Sauce:
Sugar – 1/4 cup
Cocoa Powder – 1/3 cup
Milk – 1/2 cup
Water as needed
Mix all the ingredients given for the tiganites.
Add more water to make it of thick batter consistency.
Cover with cling film and set aside for 30 minutes.
IN a sauce pan mix together sugar, cocoa powder and milk.
Add water to make it thinner.
Bring it to boil.
Simmer and cook for 2-3 minutes or until the sauce becomes slightly thick.
It will continue to go thicker when it cools down. If you are serving it hot, then cook a bit extra. But if you want to serve it at room temperature, aim for a thinner consistency.
Mix the batter nicely.
Add some oil in a pan, add a ladle full of batter and slightly spread it out.
When the top is slightly cooked flip the pan cake.
Once the pancake is cooked on both sides, remove from pan and serve it with chocolate sauce and some crushed nuts.
