When it comes to cooking for myself, I always prefer to use a single bowl for the whole prep. This considerably reduces pots and pans in the kitchen. That is the main reason, I chose this theme this week. We can either make easy to make one bowl recipes or we can make recipes where the final dish is arranged in a single bowl, like Budha bowl or smoothie bowls. I won’t be doing the presentation in single bowl, but would be making three easy to put together dishes using a single bowl.
This is an easy breezy one bowl recipe and can be made for those sudden hunger pangs. I have literally used just drops of oil to grease my tawa. This pancake serves one person and you can either serve it with chat masala, onion and lemon or serve it with a sauce at the side. One day, when I had both egg and potatoes in my chart, I was thinking of something easier that can combine both of those and that is when I came up with this recipe. The thought of using it up for this theme came later when I was removing the pancake from the tawa. For the theme or not, I had a filling breakfast with these pancakes. Along with them I had some nuts, paneer and a glass of protein shake and my breakfast was done and my tummy filled. You can also make this for snacks. When making a large portion, use a food processor instead of the mini one. And increase all the ingredients proportionately.
Potato – 150 gm
Egg – 1
Salt and Pepper To Taste
Onion – 2 tbs
Red Chilly Powder – 1/4 tsp
Dried Basil – 1 tsp
Green Chilly – 1, finely chopped
Bread Crumbs – 1 tsp
In a mini food processor, add cubed potatoes and blitz until finely shredded.
Remove the blade and add the egg, salt, pepper, chilly, red chilly powder, onion and basil and mix until all the ingredients are incorporated.
Grease a cast iron tawa, heat it and add the whole mixture into it.
Using a spoon, spread it evenly to cover the whole tawa. Cover and cook on low flame until the bottom is browned and the pancake is firm to flip.
Flip the pancake, and cook further until the other side is also brown.
Slice it into wedges, sprinkle chat masala and serve with onion slices and lemon wedge.
