Cardamom Pancakes with Kesar Elaichi syrup.

I am a big fan of cardamom.... also known as Elaichi, yelaka and etc, etc, etc,.....I love the smell of cardamom....It has a sweet smell in itself. So here I am presenting my breakfast recipe with cardamom. sending this as an entry to the Think spice Cardamom event hosted by Simple indian food blog.

We also love pancakes. Making this is very easy.

You need :

Pancake mix - 1 small packet

Elaichi (cardamom powder) - 1/4 cup

Kesar (Saffron strands) - a small pinch

Sugar - 1/2 cup

Water - 3/4 cup water.

Kesar Elaichi Syrup

Method :

Mix the pancake mix according to the directions given in the box. Add a tsp of elaichi powder to it and mix it well. Keep aside.

In a pan, heat the water and add sugar to it and mix till the sugar dissolves. Add a pinch of kesar and about 2-3 tsp of elaichi powder to it and mix well. Bring to a boil. Let the mixture boil well and become a bit thick. Your Kesar-Elaichi syrup will be ready.

Heat the Tava / Griddle and well and brush some oil on it. Pour a spoonful of the pancake batter on the Tava and spread to into a small circle. You will see the pancake bubble and you will be small holes being formed on it. when the pancake is cooked, flip it around and let it cook on the other side. Pour some oil aroud the sides if desired. Your pancakes should be golden brown in colour and nicely cooked.

Stack 2 hot pancakes on each other and pour 2 spoonful of the kesar elaichi syrup on top of it. Spread it well and serve hot. Relish these lovely hot Indian style Pancakes.

Serve hot and enjoy!

Kesar and Elaichi, now that's a flavourful combo, and I bet it paired very well with these pancakes. Looks great!
