Recipe for Spiced Pancake avec Bean (Mr Kite's invention)
For the pancake:
110g plain flour
200ml milk mixed with 75ml water
2tspn garam masala
1 tspn ground coriander
sieve flour and salt into a mixing bowl. Break the eggs into the mix, or blend. Add milk and water gradually. When all the milk and water is added, slide a spatula around the edge of the bowl to incorporate any stray flour. Add the spices and whisk until smooth.
(Note: These pancakes seem to take slightly longer to cook than conventional pancakes. The spices seem to slow the cooking down. Allow about 5 mins per pancake, but ultimately you decide when they're done.)
for the Avec Bean:
