Bisquick Uttappam / Bisquick Adai / Savoury Bisquick Dosai / Savoury Pancakes / Indian style Pancakes / Pancake Crepes / Buttermilk Dosai / Bachelor's Recipe /
|1 cup||Bisquick mix|
|¾ cup||Water (add more depending on consistency)|
|¼ tsp||Red chili powder|
|1 pinch||Turmeric powder|
|2 stks||Coriander leaves|
|¼ tsp||Cumin seeds|
|5 nos||Curry leaves (chopped)|
|½ tsp||Ginger (finely minced)|
|5 tsp||Oil / ghee / butter|
|2 pinch||Salt (optional)|
|1 no||Onion (small, chopped)|
|1 no||Green chili (minced)|
Combine all dry ingredients first (bisquick mix, red chili powder, turmeric powder, asafoetida and salt) and break all the lumps. Add butter milk and water and make a thick batter, almost similar to uttappam batter. Add chopped onions, minced green chili, ginger, cumin seeds, chopped curry leaves and coriander leaves. Mix well to combine and you're all set to make the savoury pancakes. Grease a electric griddle / tawa / pan and pour a ladle full in the center and do not swirl. Let it cook for a minute or until the bottom becomes firm, when you see small holes on top, flip to the other side and cook for another minute over medium flame and remove. Serve hot with thick kaara chutney or spicy idli podi.
Yield: Makes 5 to 6 thick pancakes.
Adding more water will result in thin pancakes. Salt is purely optional but for my taste it was lacking, so I had to include. All the above ingredients are not a must.. don't get alarmed…you can omit certain if you do not have. Little red chili powder and buttermilk will do the trick.
Additional combinations to make it Kids friendly add grated carrot / beetroot / minced broccoli / cabbage / grated paneer. Most kids love idli podi and serve these veggie included pancakes with podi and they will gobble up quicky forgetting whats in it.
Bachelors style :
1.Veg style just add in onions, ginger and green chili and rest if you have in your pantry.
2.Make thin crepes with watery batter and stuff with leftover potato curry / grated paneer curry or any thick gravy and roll it up.
3.Mix an egg to the mix with water and combine with the mix, add crushed black pepper and make thick muttai dosais.
4.Make a thick dosai, stuff with minced meat curry / kothu kari / scrambled egg curry / and fold like a pizzone.
