The next dish in this segment of 'Cooking Under 10 Minutes' is 'Semolina Pancakes.'

Let's check out its ingredients.

Semolina (rawa)


Crushed peanuts

Salt to taste

Shredded cabbage

Chopped Capsicum

Shredded carrots

Shredded spring onions

Bean sprouts

Then we have chopped coriander for garnish, and lemon juice.

Let's check out the recipe for Semolina Pancakes.


Firstly we have to take a mixing bowl.

Take half a cup of semolina.

Add into this half a cup of curd.

The quantity of curd and semolina should be the same.

Add in a spoonful of crushed peanuts and 3-4 grams of salt.

We have to soak it in two tablespoons of water.

Mix it nicely.

Soak it for around 3-4 minutes while the texture is not smooth.

By the time semolina soaks in curd, let's create a mixture for the topping.


Take a mixing bowl and add in some shredded cabbage, followed by shredded capsicum and shredded carrots. Then add shredded onions and a bit of sprouts.

Now we will add around 2-3 grams of salt and toss it properly.

Now let's check the batter.

You may add one or two drops of oil to the batter if you like, that way, it would be greasy from within.

The semolina mixture is almost done.


Now we will heat up the pan to make pancakes.

Add in 2 or 3 drops of oil or grease to the pan.

Now we will make pancakes of around 3-4 mm thickness, and we will spread it nicely.

We have to cook it on a medium flame, such that semolina is cooked properly and gets a lovely color.

By the time it cooks from the bottom, spread the topping we had made towards the top of it.

It takes around 1 -1/2 minutes to cook it on a medium flame.

There is an easy way to find out whether the semolina pancake is cooked from the bottom or not.

If we tilt the pan slightly, then if the pancake is cooked, it will leave the base and move.

Flip over the semolina pancake and cook after one side cooks. You would find that the vegetables are all nicely immersed in the pancake.

Wait for just around 30 seconds, such that the top gets nicely cooked as well and there is a nice golden color on the toppings.

The pancake is now ready.

Garnish the Semolina pancake with chopped coriander and serve with tomato sauce!
