Guest Post on LaFujimama and a Babble nomination

Indian Simmer was recently nominated by you on Babble.com for the Top 100 Food Mom Blogs 2011. You have NO idea how humbled I am just by that. Thank You so much! They have this voting system where if you "like" Indian Simmer you can vote for me. You just have to go and give a "I like this" thumb's up to Indian Simmer. Although while writing this I'm getting a feeling as if I'm running for the "office" but really, if you like this blog then please vote!

Savory Indian Pancakes

Ok, now the other thing that I am excited about today. I'm sure you all know Rachael from LaFujimama. She and I were talking the other day and she told me about this amazing Pancake Week event she's holding on her blog. There its all about pancakes lately and she asked if I can share an Indian pancake recipe that I like. I said hell, yeah!

Rachael is one of the kindest people I've met on the blogosphere. She always has something interesting cooking in her kitchen and you just can't leave her blog not drooling! She has achieved so much that I won't even start to tell you or it might take LONG. It was such an honor to cook something for Rachael. After thinking a lot I decided to make Semolina and Yogurt savory Indian pancakes which growing up my mom always used to make for us.

I have so many memories attached to these veggie pancakes, in which the "veggie part" was the key for my mom and now it is for me as a mom. We love the slight tangy flavor of yogurt blended beautifully with softened semolina and since it has close to none fat, its good for you too.  I'd love for you to head over to Rachael's beautiful blog to check out the recipe for my Lowfat Savory Indian Pancakes (Semolina and Yogurt pancakes)

  2. Thanks Paaka Shaale! Thanks so much for your vote, I really appreciate!
    This is a little like rava dosa since Semolina is used in both but this is maily a chila which is not crispy but soft and uses a lot of yogurt and no rice flour. The batter also is comparatively thicker.
