Eggless Wholewheat Banana Pancakes


A pancake is a flat round cake which is usually made of milk, eggs, flour and butter which is poured over a frying pan and cooked. It is often served with honey or maple syrup and a small square of butter. Some people like a berry compote with it too. While most pancake recipes call for eggs, I decided to make a not so conventional eggless banana pancake. These pancakes are not exactly like those fluffy, airy buttermilk pancakes, they are a little less fluffy because of the wholewheat but the taste is promising. This recipe can be veganised as well and I have mentioned how you can do that!

Cauliflower, Peas And Spinach Cutlets


Third in my “All things cutlet and fritter” series is this cauliflower, peas and spinach cutlet. Potato cutlets and vegetable cutlets are quite common so I thought of making a cutlet with cauliflower, peas and spinach giving a twist to the classic aloo or potato cutlet. Spinach is not often used in cutlets so what better way than to incorporate the green leavy vegetable into the cutlets.

Beetroot And Paneer Cutlet With Chilli, Ginger And Tomato Chutney


I’ve decided to come up with a range of healthy cutlets and fritters. This falls second in the list after the potato and cottage cheese fritters. Cutlets are perfect for the rainy weather and best had in the evening as a snack. When I think of cutlet or tikki the first thing that comes to my mind is aloo or potato tikki. I think many people can relate to it. Why not beetroot? Beetroot is one such vegetable which not many like but it is very good for you. Many kids are not fond of it as well.

Potato And Cottage Cheese Fritters With Cilantro Mint Mayo And Cherry Tomato Salad


I have been wanting to make these potato fritters for a long time and yesterday I seemed to find the time to make these. These fritters on their own ate quite mild therefore they should be served with a cilantro mint mayo and a simple tangy cherry tomato salad to balance out all the flavours. If you think there a lot of components and it will take forever to make, you are WRONG! It is very simple to make and quite straightforward. If you have all the ingredients ready and prepped you can make it in half an hour.
