“A breakfast I designed for my boyfriend. It's still a work in progress; having since dropped in on a Pakistani supermarket I'm just packed with the meantime, here it is.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 egg whites, beaten
  • 1 cup flour
  • 4 carrots
  • 12 tablespoon masala (or substitute with your own spice mix...I happen to use an Indian tea melange I love)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 14 tablespoon nutmeg
  • 34 tablespoon cinnamon
  • butter
  • whipped cream


  1. Process carrots. If, like me, you do not have a processor, I recommend dicing the carrots into slices and placing them in a microwave-safe cup. Microwave until soft, then mash within the cup with a spoon.
  2. Add flour to beaten eggs, then the carrot "paste".
  3. Season to your tastes, or follow my example (sugar, salt, mélange, nutmeg, cinnamon). Mix well.
  4. Heat butter in a frying pan at medium heat.
  5. Pour batter into frying pan, to desired size--be conscious of your size as it effects overall servings per capita. :) I made this to serve two people, but of course that's entirely up to you.
  6. Brown pancake for approximately five minutes on either side -- the spices in the batter closest to the side of the pancake being cooked should become prominent when ready.
  7. Serve with butter and whipped cream. My boyfriend likes Nutella too. :P.
