This is a Sindhi breakfast preparation. A savoury pancake made with lentils and besan. For variation you may add any grated vegetable or finely chopped greens to the batter to make it more healthier and tastier...

Cumin seeds ........ 1 tsp
Green chillies ...... 1 - 2
Coriander leaves .. handful
Ginger ................. 1 tsp (optional)
Baking soda ......... a pinch
Salt .................. to taste
Oil /ghee ... to smear

Method:

1. Soak moong dal for a few hours.

2. Grind coarsely adding a little water, green chillies and cumin seeds.
3. Remove in a bowl and stir in the besan. Add salt, baking soda and finely chopped coriander leaves.

4. Pour the batter on the non-stick pan and spread it with the back of the spoon.
5. Pour a little oil or ghee and roast it until crisp on medium flame.
Serve hot with any pickle or chutney of your choice.
This quantity makes 4 pancakes.
