1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp coriander powder
Finely chopped cilantro leaves as required
Salt to taste
Oil as required


Put all the ingredients except oil in a big mixing bowl.
Add small quantities of water to make a smooth batter, so that there are no lumps in it. Set aside for 10 minutes.
Heat a non-stick griddle on medium heat and grease it with oil.
Pour a laddle of batter in the middle of the pan and spread it evenly like an omelette (or a crepe or dosa).
Pour 1 tsp of oil around the corners of the pancake and cover it with a lid for a minute.
Remove the lid, put some more oil on the top & flip the pancake over.Cook for another for 2-3 minutes
Press the pancake lightly with a spatula all around so that it cooks evenly and turns golden brown and crispy.
Repeat the same with the remaining batter.
Serve the pancakes hot with ketchup or chutney.
