Anyways coming back to today's post, here is an easy savory pancake recipe which you can mix up in few minutes and have a hot hot pancakes or more like utthapams in a few minutes. All you need to have in your pantry is cornmeal. Did you even know the you can make wonderful savory pancakes with cornmeal! Here is the recipe!

  6. looks delicious! Thanks for sharing, I will certainly try this one out. But will have to add maple syrup on top (can not eat pancakes without it!). (note: I only use Organic Maple Syrup cause it is tastier than 'normal' syrup...if you look for real good one, try rouge maple online. That's where I get mine). Bon appetit!
