Lunchbox Ideas : Indian Spicy Pancake

Pancakes are quick and easy to make and takes only a couple of minutes to prepare. So, it is a good choice as a quick breakfast and lunch box. Generally pancakes are sweet and savory, but we Indians have a tendency of spicing up everything we see around ourselves, so...we gave a hint of Indianess, and made a whole new version out of it.

If you look around you will see a lot of Indian pancakes which are not limited to the typical flour batter. One example is -Dosa , uttapam and many others.
Compared to the sweeter version, I prefer this spicy Indian pancakes as breakfast. There is a good reason behind this. One is, I don't like eating sweets in the morning. And second, is, I get an opportunity to put some vegetables in it, which is a healthier option.
