Avocado and carrot savoury pancakes


These avocado and carrot savoury pancakes recipe is from many years ago. It is another of the recipes that I managed to salvage from ‘the notebook’. And today being ‘pancake day’ here in the UK, it seems to be the perfect time to cast the spotlight on these beauties.

Pancakes are usually reserved for our weekend breakfasts. The ones that we all love the most are whole wheat and banana ones, lightly spiced with cinnamon and served with a drizzle of honey.

But, occasionally, on other days of the week, I also make some savoury ones which we like to have, not for breakfast, but with some light soup (usually dal), and make a light meal out of them. Huh? Pancakes for dinner?!!! Well, why not!

The stack!

The pancakes that I make are almost always the crepe like the English ones where the batter is spread out to make them thinner. However, for the following avocado infused pancakes, I kept the sizes smaller and slightly thicker, compared to the ones I usually make, as they proved to be quite tricky to turn over. These pancakes would also form a nice breakfast, or a snack, on their own.

Serving suggestion-

We had our carrot and avocado pancakes with some dal (red lentil soup) and some mixed pickle.
