Bread Pancakes

Bread pancakes or bread Uttapam are a very healthy and tasty option for breakfast. It is one of my favorite breakfast recipes. These Bread Pancakes always remind me of Sundays when I was a kid. This was a very popular breakfast in our house.

I am talking about the time when Doordarshan (national T.V.) used to telecast Mahabharata at 9 o clock in the morning on Sundays. It was a very popular T.V. show at that time. There used to be complete silence on streets and markets. Everybody used to be at home watching T.V.

But my mom had a problem. We would get up at 8:30 or 9:00 as it was Sunday and then demand breakfast. Our kitchen was quite far from the T.V. room and she would miss the whole show by the time breakfast was over. So one day she thought of a plan. Yes she did!! She would start making these bread pancakes around 8:00 and the whole house would smell so good that we all got ready and silently ate our breakfast like good kids before 9 o’ clock. And she watched the show happily ever after. ;-)

This recipe is so perfect I have not changed anything in it. These look like Suji uttappam/ pancakes but are quite different in taste. You can add vegetables according to your preference to change the taste a little. It is also a very good option for kid’s lunch box. My kids simply love it.

 

How to make Savory Bread Pancakes

Preparation time: 5-7 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes
makes around 8 pancakes

Ingredients:
10 bread slices
½-1 cup milk as required
2 onions grated or chopped very fine
1 capsicum diced
2 tomatoes chopped( without pulp)
1 tbsp chopped green chilies
1 tbsp grated ginger
1 potato medium size, peeled and grated
2 tbsp cilantro/ coriander leaves
salt to taste
½ tsp red chili powder
½ tsp garam masala
oil for shallow frying

To make Savory Bread Pancakes

Remove corners of the bread slices. Crush the bread slices roughly and soak them in 1/4-1/2 cup milk for 10 minutes. Now add all the other ingredients except milk and oil. Make a thick batter using milk. The batter will be sticky but do not dilute it otherwise it will be too soft to retain shape.


Heat a non stick pan or griddle and grease it lightly with oil. Spread batter on the pan and give it round shape with the help of a spoon.

Spread a little oil around pancake to keep it from sticking to the pan. Cook it on slow flame till the base is golden brown. Turn it over and cook the other side in the same way using a little oil.

Serve hot with ketchup or green chutney.

    Just tried your bread pancakes. I had ended up adding a little bit more milk than needed which made it difficult to flip… Still they turned out great. I don’t like cooking and have never tried making anything special but your recipes seemed so tempting and I loved using them. Thanks. would try out more dishes too.
    Thanks

    Hi,

    I made this bread pancake today morning with brown bread. I dont know why but the batter separated itself from milk and when placed on non stick pan, it didnt retain its shape. So i had to make an upma out of it. However this upma alsa tasted nice and my hubby loved the idea. Thanks and please advise on how to make a nice batter

    • Nidhi says:

      Hi Fakeha , start by adding minimum milk just enough to soak the slices. Then add milk gradually to make the batter. Pan should also be greased properly and hot. I have not tried these with brown bread. Try using white bread for this recipe.

    • Nidhi says:

      Glad to hear that Anubha. when next time you make it use butter only on one side. may be that should help. Thanks for the feedback :-)
