Banana Pancake

Sorry friends, this post has no photo as my camera battery is on strike :-( Will try to update a picture next time I make this.

This recipe is from Vatsala's Show and Tell  for Blog Hop Wednesday. I have made Plantain Pancake before, but this recipe is a different one.


Whole wheat flour - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1 tsp
Ripe Banana - 1
Vanilla extract - 1/2 tsp
Milk - 4-5 tsp
Salt - a pinch
Butter / Ghee - as needed

The original recipe has cinnamon powder which I didnt add.


1. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Puree the banana and add to the bowl along with vanilla extract and milk to form a smooth batter. Keep aside for 5-10 mins.
2. Heat a non-stick pan and pour a ladle full of batter and make a pancake. Cook on low flame and when one side is cooked, add a little butter or ghee and flip to the other side. When both sides are cooked well, remove from pan.

Serve with honey.

Paneer 65

For Blog Hop Wednesday-Week 6, I cooked from Divyaz Easy Recipes. As I was browsing through her recipes, I got hooked by the Paneer 65. The dish is quick and simple and makes a yummy appetizer.
I have made few changes in the spice powders to suit my family's taste.


1. Paneer - 250 gms, cubed

2. Red chilly powder - 1 to 2 tsp
Jeera powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 3/4 tsp
Cornflour - 2 tsp
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Curd/yoghurt - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste

3. Oil to deep fry
4. Lemon juice - optional to drizzle


1. Cube the paneer to medium size pieces. I used store brought paneer, so I soaked it in hot water for 5-10 mins to soften.
2. Mix all ingredients under item 2 and coat the paneer cubes well with this paste. Keep aside for 15-20 mins.
3. Heat oil in a pan for deep frying and add the paneer cubes. Fry till all sides are golden brown. Drain to kitchen tissue. You may add a dash of lemon juice before serving.

Serve hot.

Here is an award from me to all of you who contributed to the event. 

Coming to the theme for October, it is the most commonly used fruit all over the world - BANANA.

Benefits of Banana
  • Bananas are one of our best sources of potassium, an essential mineral for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function.
  •  Bananas are good for your kidneys and bones: Benefits to the kidneys and the bones are again due to the high potassium content of bananas. A normal intake of potassium suppresses calcium excretion in the urine and minimizes the risk of kidney stones. 
  •  Bananas are  recognized for their antacid effects that protect against stomach ulcers and ulcer damage. 
  •  In addition, bananas contain pectin, a soluble fiber that can help normalize movement through the digestive tract and ease constipation.  

Rules for the event:
1. Send any recipe that has Banana as one of the ingredient. Banana can be the main ingredient or used in combination with any other ingredients. Raw or ripe bananas can be used.
