It was so impulsive on my part that it isint funny how I ended up doing this.
I was hoping Viha would just eat an egg instead of asking for pancakes every morning. But will she even say yes, without me hurling a thousand explanations of how good an egg is for breakfast. I really didnt want to do this, not today on this beautiful morning.
There was a pot of quinoa which I had just boiled sitting on the counter and on an impulse I grabbed the quinoa with a thousand doubts in my mind, but still willing to give it a go. What will happen – I will need to make another batch of batter. No problem. I will still try it, and I am glad I did.
What came out was fluffy pancakes with a great texture, two of which were gobbled down happily and a content mother’s heart on cheating her child, yet again, into eating something that she wanted to.
I got 3 pancakes.
Here is the recipe –
3 tbspn – wheat flour
2 tbspn – boiled quinoa
1/2 tbspn – butter
1 tspn – sugar
1/4 cup – milk
1/4 tspn – baking powder
I just added everything except the baking powder together. A gentle lumpy mix and mixed enough water to make it into a thick batter
Then added the baking powder and gave a stir.
Made pancakes on a skillet and served with maple syrup (a little extra as I didnt have any fruits to go with them!)
