Stuffed pancake



I don’t know the actual name of this dish. One day, I’d just switched on the TV amid a pile of works. I saw Lucinda of the program ‘Mad Hungry’. I love to watch this very program. Anyway, she was cooking something like pancake. However, after making the normal pancake she started adding some more things. Out of curiosity I sat down to watch the show, without caring that the time was passing by. As a result, I came to know a very tasty recipe. Till date I only knew that pancake was sweet, but stuffing with some delicious thing, that could be made as a lips smacking dish. As I watched it from halfway, I couldn’t come to know the name. So, I decided to put some name that suits with the dish. Though her recipe was much more delicious, I changed according to the availability of items in my kitchen.

Ingredients:

For three pancakes

4 tbsp flour

2 eggs

¼ cup milk (if you need, you can add more milk slowly)

Pinch of salt

1 tbsp sugar

Oil for butter for frying

For stuffing:

1 medium sized potato

3-4 florets of broccoli

2 tbsp shredded mozzarella cheese

Salt to taste

1 cup tomato sauce

Method:

For pancake:

Whisk all the ingredients in mixer to make a medium thick batter. Heat a heavy bottomed frying pan. Add one tbsp butter or oil. When the butter sizzles add ½ cup of the batter on the middle of the pan and move the pan in circular motion to spread the batter throughout the pan. Fry it for 1-2 minutes in medium heat or until done. Then flip the pancake to fry the other side. In this way you can make the pancake. According to quantity of the ingredients, I’ve written, you can make 3-4 pancakes.

For feeling:

In the meantime boil potato and broccoli. Smash them with salt. Divide the mixture in three parts and give them a cylindrical shape. Put each of them in the three pancakes. Spread cheese over them and roll the pancakes.

For stuffed pancake:

Preheat the oven at 350 F. grease an oven-proof pan. Spread sauce all over the pan. Place the three pancakes in the pan. Spread cheese over them and bake for 15 minutes.

 

P.S. I used less sauce. I thought that it was going to be too tart to eat. However, it was not so. After baking sauce tasted little bit sweet. And please don’t go by my photo, because my frying pan was not in good shape, so I faced difficulty to detach the pancake from the pan.
