Father’s Day-Instant Savory Breakfast Pancakes – Indian Bread Uttapam : Easy, Eggless, Scrumptious n healthy recipe to make your dad feel special this Fathers Day! There’s always something special about fresh home cooked meal & if it’s filled with love n cooked by kids, trust me your dad’s day is made!Breakfast rules at our place and it’s probably my Dad’s favorite meal. Although he eats very less but he sure does love variety or that whole buffet kind of breakfast platter with freshly cooked eggs, cereal, juice, fresh fruits and sourdough bread-yep that’s his favorite 🙂 So this father’s day, I’m planning to surprise him with a whole ‘Breakfast Food Galore’ including my Father’s Day-Instant Savory Breakfast Pancakes -Indian Bread Uttapam, egg muffins, Indian style overnight oats, lemon cake, fresh fruits, and juice.It’s made using whole wheat bread, all-purpose flour, semolina flour, rice flour, oats and I’ve added lots of mixed veggies along with seasoning. In short, it’s one festive party on a plate that’s surely going to bring a smile on your face. Now, Uttapam(circular savory pancake) is a popular breakfast item in the southern states of India and made using fermented lentil+rice mixture. It’s crispier than a pancake because of the use of rice flour and it’s eggless too. So in many houses in Northern India, we make this fusion recipe which needs no fermenting and pleases one n all. The addition of more than one kind of flour makes the pancakes crispier and fluffier. You can even add yogurt to make it extra fluffy and give it a tangy hint. For my vegan friends, this step can be avoided or you can add any fruit soda or baking soda to give them an extra crisp. Once you have made your pancake/bread uttapam base, the toppings choice is endless! You can add just about anything from veggies / cheese / cooked meat to just about whatever you please. Now, since my dad love South Indian food, I’m going to sprinkle some sambhar powder over the veggies while the pancake is cooking (totally optional step). Also, the batter can be made a day in advance, just keep it in fridge and use the next day.These are Awesome if eaten fresh (think how would you feel eating stale pancakes – that’s exactly what happens here) and serve it with your favorite ketchup/chutney or even a ranch dressing. My Father’s Day preperation has already started and hope you’re making some great plans too.
That’s it from me this time and hey, I hope you’ll remember that Father’s Day is Sunday – June 19, 2016.
