Green pancakes taste delicious and are very nutritious.

Ingredients:

Chickpea flour 200 grams
Spinach leaves 1 bunch
Salt to taste
Red chilli powder 1/2 teaspoon
Garam masala powder 1/4 teaspoon
Water as required
Ginger 1/2 inchgrated
Oil to make pancakes

Procedure:

Firstly clean the bunch of spinach leaves properly and wash them nicely about 4 to 5 times with water.

Now take a big vessel and fill it with water, let this water boil.
When the water boils, in the boiling water put the spinach leaves just for 2 min.

Take the spinach leaves out and quickly wash them with cold water.
Now put the spinach leaves in a blender, add little bit of water and make a paste.
Now in a bowl add the chickpea flour, salt, red chilli powder, grated ginger, garam masala and mix well. Now add the spinach puree and depending on the consistency slowly add water to make a fine paste avoiding lumps. Mix well.

This batter is now ready and you can make pancakes out of it.
Making pancakes is very easy just take a flat nonstick pan and heat it.

Now add about 1 teaspoon oil and spread it all over the nonstick pan, heat oil.

When the oil is hot add about 2 table spoons green batter and spread it well on the flat pan, you can add more oil if required on the sides of the pancakes, cook it from both the sides light brown - the pan cake is ready.

Serve hot with tomato sauce or mint chutney.
