MITHO CHILLO (Sweet Pancake)

This is a traditional Sindhi breakfast dish. Cardamom flavoured sweet pancakes made with wheat flour and sugar or jaggery.

Whole wheat flour ... 1 cup
Sugar ................ 2 tbsps.
Cardamom powder .. 1/8 tsp
Baking powder .. a pinch (or) 1 tsp oil or ghee
Milk or water ... to mix
Oil or ghee ... to smear


1. Mix sugar, wheat flour, cardamom powder and baking powder or 1 tsp oil into a smooth, thick batter using milk or water.

2. In a non-stick frying pan/griddle, pour a ladle full of batter and spread it into a pancake.

3. Smear a little ghee or oil and roast it to a light brown colour turning sides.
4. This is served with pickle and papad.
PS: You can make it with jaggery also. The difference in that is you make the jaggery syrup and mix the flour later. Crushed saunf/aniseeds are added to this.

Pin for later
