  • Chickpea flour: 2 cups

  • French beans: 2 whole
  • Parsley: a handful
  • Tomatoes: 1 medium-sized
  • Carrot: 1 small
  • Tomato puree: 2 tablespoon
  • Salt to taste
  • White pepper to taste
  • Carom seeds: if available; 1 teaspoon
  • Water to make the batter
  • A pinch of baking soda


  • In a food processor, roughly grind the raw broccoli, cauliflower, French beans, parsley, and carrot. Do not over grind it. The veggies should be forming a coarse mixture.
  • Now take the chickpea flour is a large mixing bowl. Add the salt, white pepper, and baking powder. Give it a good mix.
  • Now slowly add water to the dry mix. Whisk with a hand whisker or a fork until you get a semi-thick batter. Now add the tomato puree. Mix well.
  • Add chopped tomatoes and the veggie mixture. Mix well again. If the batter is too thick, add more water. This pancake turns out great even with a runny batter – so don’t worry!
  • Finally, add the carom seeds if available; taste and adjust seasoning accordingly.
  • Now heat a flat pan. Drizzle a few drops of olive oil or any cooking oil you have.
  • Pour a ladle full of the batter and cook one side on medium flame until the sides start to rise. Then flip the pancake and cook the other side on medium flame.
  • Remove from pan and serve hot with tomato ketchup.
