CULINARY TREATS: A FRESH START TO THE WEEK


Delicate & Delectable- Wrapped to Relish!

The weekend is over! and as we proceed with the onset of the new week, a Monday morning always comes with a whole lot of expectations, hope and the fact that we need to pull up our socks at work as well sometimes, meetings, deadlines and catching up on calls, having limited meal times too is a challenge for many. In that regard, I keep getting loads of messages and requests from working people who request something to get going on the go while at work and to even avoid full meals and detailed courses as well while at work. Keeping that in mind, I had a number of options to share, some with using leftover rotis, chapattis, ready-to-use wraps and roll sheets which can also make life easy to an extent and the last one being to use pancake concepts which can be made on Sunday and kept in the fridge, being filled up with a variety of stuffing as per choice, packed up into lunch boxes and start the day.

Pancake is a term which usually applies to a concept of a cake being dressed up in a pan, while there are a number of connotations attached in different contexts, a pancake is a versatile preparation which can be done sweet, savoury, small, medium and even on a full-size version depending on the need and desire. these delicacies are not only popular for breakfasts made fresh in small pans, browned to perfection offered with honey, jam, fruits, marmalades etc but also go well for a brunch concept as well with savoury fillings and roll-up live stations which are usually packed with foodies wanting for more.

Also Try: THE BENEFICIAL BEAN FARE

The little advice I usually give people when it comes to working with pancakes is that the batter should be well-made, and its composition, elements, texture and flavour should be well-defined. Secondly, the pan being used to prepare these should be well seasoned, to the extent of being greased lightly for the first two or three pieces and then it automatically gets accustomed to leaving the sides by itself.

The third important aspect of a pancake is to have the fillings, stuffing, toppings, garnishes, etc. be kept ready a little before we cook the batter in the non-stick pan and be ready with its plating as well to avoid delay in service and food quality for the guest. While there are various recipes attached to doing pancakes, ones with eggs and ones without eggs, there are vegan pancakes as well which are yummy as well with fillings and toppings to entice our palate as well.
