Sweet Corn Pancakes – Healthy & Delicious


Guest blogger: Neena Vilas Talpade

My sister Neena is an amazing cook. Every time I visit her, I insist that she make these most scrumptious pancakes with sweet corn. They will have you licking your fingers. Yum yum…

Preparation time: 15 mins


cutting corn

1 cup corn kernels (short-cut: hold the corn-cob with the left hand, the tip pointing downwards., and run a sharp knife down its sides if you don’t mind just a wee bit being left behind in the cob. Steam for 3-4 mins.

  1. Two tablespoons each of all purpose flour or whole wheat flour, semolina and rice flour. (Don’t worry if any one of these is missing from your pantry-just increase the quantity of the others!
  2. One egg, well-beaten. ( or instead- two well-beaten egg-whites)
  3. 1/2 teaspoon baking powder.
  4. 1 teaspoon sugar.
  5. Salt to taste.
  6. A cup of milk
  7. Butter or refined oil to coat the frying pan. If salted butter is to be used, use a little less salt.
  8. Grated cheese for topping-as desired!
