My Grandma's Potato Pancakes

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

This recipe is a classic Sunday breakfast in my house. These savoury pancakes were first made by my grandmother, and she sometimes even used to put a little leftover lentil curry in. But these were and still are a weekend breakfast favourite for us served with spicy scrambled eggs and hot tea, or in my case, orange juice.

A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Grated Potato

2. An Egg
3. Salt and Pepper
4. Red Chilli Powder
5. Milk
6. Plain Flour
7. Vegetable Oil

Bismillah, let's start!

Grate one large potato into a mixing bowl.

 Add one egg.

 Add one teaspoon salt.

And one teaspoon black pepper.

 And one teaspoon red chilli powder.

Next, add 1/3 cup milk.

Stir the mixture to combine.

Next, add 4 ounces plain flour.

And add more milk, to make a smooth batter.

 Stir until combined.

 Heat a little oil in a frying pan, and spoon in some of the batter. Spread it out with a spatula, until you get a round and thin pancake. Cook for a few minutes, until golden brown and cooked.

 Serve at once, as these are best piping hot.
