Choco Chip Pancakes- every kid’s dream ! Gooey, sticky, fluffy, chocolatey – perhaps nothing can come close to heaven for a chocoholic. However, my family prefers hot, savoury stuff for breakfast, but an occasional pancake is surely a welcome indulgence.
So, this pancake is with a twist. It’s:
– gluten free
– Easy to make
– Healthy and Filling
– and most of all made with a secret ingredient.
Read on to find out what secret Ingredient went into making these yummy, droolicious pancakes that were devoured !! Even the non-chocoolic in me (don’t judge :p) wanted to have a bite of this sinful delight !
This week at FoodieMondayBloghop, we have #DesiTwist as a theme (that I suggested), and we present Indian Ingredients / Indian Dishes with a Firangi Twist.

PIN FOR LATER
To the prepared idli batter, add cocoa powder and whisk well. Add a tsp or two of water to get to the required consistency.
Add the vanilla extract, baking soda and fold gently. Let the batter stand for 5 mins.
Pour a ladleful of the batter onto a heated tava / skillet. drizzle oil around the pancakes like a dosa.
Cook on one or both the sides .
Serve immediately with the toppings as mentioned above or even add whipped cream 🙂
