Spicy Buckwheat Pancakes

I used Orgran Buckwheat Pancake mix to make some spicy pancakes a bit similar to Gujarati pudlas.  Please note that Buckwheat is not a grain but a fruit seed and part of the rhubarb family of plants.  This link  gives you more information about Buckwheat.


Ingredients for 5 pancakes: 

  • ½ cup buckwheat pancake mix
  • 1 small onion -grated
  • 1 fresh green chilly chopped into small pieces
  • small bunch of freshly chopped coriander
  • small piece of grated ginger
  • 2 gloves of garlic minced using a garlic press
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • pinch of turmeric
  •  3 tbls oil


1.  Transfer the pancake mix into a mixing bowl.  Add the onions, ginger, garlic, green chillies, coriander, salt, turmeric to the pancake mix.

2. Add 2 tablespoons of cooking oil to the mixture and mix it all using a spoon.

3.  Add half a cup of water to the mixture and stir.

4. This water should be enough but if you feel that the mixture is thick and you can a couple of tablespoons of water.

5. Grease and heat a non stick frying pan with oil.  Rub off the excess oil using a kitchen paper.  Pour in a small ladle of the pancake mix and using a tablespoon, spread it into a circle.

6. Once the little air bubbles start to appear, it should be easy to turn the pancake over.  If the pancakes feel dry, you can add a couple of drops of oil to allow them to brown.

7.  Cook until golden brown on both sides. Finish making all the pancakes in the same manner. I didn’t need to add much oil to the pancakes and they cooked fine and tasted great too.

8.  Serve Spicy Buckwheat Pancakes hot with your favourite sauce.
