Banana & Sesame Pancake With Strawberry Compote

Pancakes are really one of the fastest ways to cook up something delicious instantly. I prefer to make it as an evening snack as its not too heavy and it fills the stomach just enough to have enough room for dinner. Everybody loves it, so its pretty much like one-snack-for-all types.

I decided to make this pancake with banana and sesame this time. Banana has a rich source of anti-oxidants and has good amount of soluble dietary fiber. Sesame seeds are rich in omega-6 fatty acids and dietary fiber.

Banana Pancakes with Sesame and Strawberry Compote

Ingredients:
1 cup plain flour ( maida)
1/4th cup powdered sugar,
1 tsp baking powder,
1 tbsp white sesame seeds,
1 egg, (optional, I have not used it)
2 ripe bananas,
2-3 cups of milk, (may require more),
1/2 tsp vanilla essence,
2-3 tbsp of butter,

Method:
  1. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and sesame seeds together and set aside.
  2. Next, mash the bananas and pour in about 1 cup of milk and mix well. If adding egg, beat the egg into the same mixture. Add the vanilla essence as well.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well.
  4. Gently add the remaining milk slowly being careful of the consistency.
  5. You should get a pouring consistency. Adjust the sweetness depending upon taste.
  6. In a non stick pan, pour a laddle full of batter. Cover the sides with butter, and cook until golden brown on both sides.
  7. Serve hot.

I've topped it up with Strawberry Compote. You could drizzle maple syrup or honey. Sprinkle with sesame seeds or freshly grated coconut.
