Strawberry Pancakes



We are at the doorstep of the year end and going by the news the entire North India is under a cold spell and cities like Delhi and Kolkata are under a thick blanket of fog. Forget humans even the animals living in Kolkata Alipore Zoo are not coming out of cages and have been provided with blankets to wade off the chill. Even the flooring of our own Royal Bengal Tiger’s cage has been changed from concrete to wooden planks. Also the Zoo director said that the appetites of the animals have increased three times! So I noticed that even mine and my son’s appetite has increased slightly (though not 3 times )! So to bring about a twist in the day to day mundane breakfast after a long time I have tried out Strawberry pancakes.

 Strawberries are available only for a short period during winter and I thought to take this opportunity to use it in as many preparation as a main flavor as possible. Must admit , turned out to be good. By looking at it don’t you think so?

Preparation time: 10 minutes, Cooking time: 2-3 minutes per Pancake
Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups All purpose flour
1 packet of fresh Strawberry, chopped
2 tbsp Honey
A big pinch of Cardamom powder
A big pinch of Cinnamon powder
1 Egg
Picnh of Baking powder
2 tbsp melted butter
1 cup Milk
Pinch of salt

For Strawberry sauce:
8-9 Strawberries, sliced
2 tbsp Sugar

Method:
In a large bowl sift all the dry ingredients together and keep aside. In a separate bowl whisk together melted butter + milk+ honey and egg till everything is combined well. Add dry ingredients into the wet and stir until just blended (the batter will be slightly thicker). Fold in the chopped strawberries. Let the batter sit for 5-10 minutes.

Heat a skillet to medium heat and spoon 2-3 tbsp of batter into skillet, using the back of the ladle spread batter into a round shape. pour just 1-2 tsp of oil and allow the batter to cook or until you see some bubbles appear on the edges. 

Flip with a thin spatula to cook the other side. Transfer it to a serving plate and follow the same process to finish all the batter into pancakes. Try to maintain the size of pancakes same. Serve warm with desired toppings. Frankly speaking nothing else is required with these delicious pancakes but I generally serve my pancakes with strawberry sauce. 

To make Strawberry sauce you just need to combine sliced strawberries, 2 tablespoons sugar and 1 tbsp water in a small saucepan over low heat, bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat. And let this cool.
