Savory Potato Pancakes

Hi Everyone and this is my special healthy recipe for you’ll on today’s Meatless Monday segment. To me breakfast recipes are the most challenging as we definitely love to have variety every few days in our menu and to top it all, keep it healthy and quick (as no matter how early you get up, you hardly have time for anything in the morning – Phew!!! Maybe it’s the phones that keep us on a constant itch to check for latest updates on everything šŸ˜‰

I literally love this recipe as it can be customized to everybody’s taste in your family or friends. It can be made soft, crispy, extra browned or you can change the vegetable option and add something else. But trust me with potato, it’s a total hit with everyone especially with young ones.

Here’s a version of an extra crisp and slightly browned pancake that was devoured within a minute with some extra ketchup šŸ™‚
