Steps to make the banana and jaggery pancake

1. First of all, take two ripe bananas and mash them into a bowl.

2. Now add flour to the mashed bananas, and mix them well. Add jaggery powder and mix it properly.

3. Now warm the water, and add it slowly to avoid lumps. Maintain a smooth consistency, and keep whisking the mix.

Tip: Please see that the batter should not be of runny consistency. In case it is, then do add some flour and jaggery powder.

4. Now add cinnamon and cardamom powder to the mix, and give it a final whisk. Now, keep this mix for 10 minutes.

5. Now take a pan, keep it on medium flame, and spread some olive oil on it. Now evenly spread the batter.

6. In a minute or two, check whether the pancake is cooked from one side or not. If it has turned golden brown, then flip it to cook it from the other side.

This banana and jaggery pancake is a great breakfast option

If breakfast is the only meal of the day you take seriously, then it is important to make it healthy and worthwhile. Just having fruits or cereals won’t make up for the calories that you actually need for the entire day. If you do not pay attention, then you will have cravings throughout the day, and end up bingeing on junk food. 

But with this pancake recipe, you can enjoy breakfast American-style, which is not just yum but healthy! And as it has banana, so no worries about hunger pangs.

It is a healthy sweet dish for those who take their diet plan way too seriously, because there is nothing in it that will reverse the effect of their diet. Now what more do you want?     

So ladies, it’s time to dig in!
