What's great about pancakes is that no matter how hungry your friend might feel, you could always make more and more until he or she gets satisfied.
2.Wheat Flour (Or mixed with white flour)
3.Onions (important; giving a great taste)
4.Garlic & ginger
5.Other vegetables (such as potatoes, carrots, and green peppers)
6.Seasonings (for me, including salt, black pepper, kumin seeds, chilly powder,curry powder, and sesame seeds)
Talk your friend into cutting vegetables for you...
And cut ginger, garlic and Onions into small pieces.
Cut potatoes, carrots, and green peppers into small pieces.
(In order to save time while cooking, the smaller the potato pieces are, the better.)
Break one egg. Mix it with water and wheat flour.
If the liquid could form a line as the picture shows, the texture should be good.
Add salt, black pepper, kumin seeds, chilly powder, curry powder, and sesame seeds.
(The amount of salt depends on how many pancakes you make. Personally, I put 2tbsp for 4 pancakes.)
Add vegetables and stir.
Use medium heat to preheat the pan for one minute or two.
Pour 1 1/2 tbsp oil and spread it over the pan. Let the oil heat for around 30 seconds.
Pour the mixture into the pan and use a spoon to flatten it.
After the outside ring changes its color, lift the edge, and make sure the pancake does not stick to the pan.
Lift the pancake to see whether the bottom get cooked (become crispy).
Flip it over when the bottom gets slightly burnt. (Or do it earlier if you don't like slightly-burnt pancakes.)
When both sides become cooked, you can take the first pancake out, and start the second one.
Change to a lower heat, add oil, and repeat the previous procedure.
(If you want to cook more quickly, and do not mind making your pancakes a little bit more burnt, feel free to cook over medium heat. But sometimes it does happen that the pancake outside becomes too hard while the inside tastes a little bit raw.)
Here they are! Four pancakes!
If made well, the pancakes would taste soft inside with its outside part slightly crispy.
Salty. Onions got fried with the hot oil. Oh god, it's yummy.
And don't forget your friend, who may sit at the table, watching you and waiting...
