Vegan Gram-Flour Pancakes

Posted on July 24, 2012 by Nina Casalena, The VRG Blog Editor

Thanks to Tanuj Sharma for sending us this vegan gram-flour pancake recipe from India!

(Makes 6 pancakes)

Chana dal (also known as bengal gram) is similar to garbanzo beans, only smaller, split, and sweeter. They resemble small beans, have a low glycemic index, and a nutty flavor. Chana dal is popular in India. They can be found at Indian markets, health food stores, and many mainstream grocery stores.

Ingredients:

  • 250 gm (1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons) chana dal (gram dal)
  • 20 gm (4-1/2 teaspoons) finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 4-5 finely chopped green chilies
  • 50 gm (3-1/2 Tablespoons) finely chopped fresh green coriander (cilantro)
  • 10 gm (2 teaspoons) each whole coriander and cumin
  • Salt, to taste
  • 2 teaspoon oil

First wash chana dal thoroughly and soak it in water for 2-3 hrs.

Add dal, ginger, green chilies, green coriander, and whole coriander and cumin with a little water and grind it in a mixer to make a diluted paste. Now add little salt to the paste and mix it thoroughly.

Next, put oil in a hot pan and put some of the prepared paste on the pan and spread it in a round shape (15 cm or 6 inch diameter). Cook pancake on both sides until brown. Serve pancake hot.
