An excuse for a 2nd round of pancakes today, but savoury for dinner time. Cheating here as this is my mum's recipe but it's so delicious so I had to share! You can throw in any vegetables of your choice!

Cook Time 30 minutes Total Time 45 minutes Difficulty medium



  • 180g (1 cup) Red Split Lentils
  • 1/3 cup Water
  • 1 Garlic Clove, minced
  • 1 Carrot, grated
  • 1/2 Courgette, grated
  • 1/4 tsp Cumin/coriander powder

  • 1/4 tsp chilli powder
  • 2 handfuls peas (frozen)
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Oil (for frying)


  • Soak the lentils in water overnight (or 8 hours)
  • Drain the lentils and add to a blender / food processor with the water. Blend until you have a smooth batter. If you find you need more water, add 1-2 tbsp as needed. If your batter is too runny add 1-2tbsp of chickpea/gram flour
  • Add the spices and vegetables into the mixture and stir in until fully combined.
  • Heat a non stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add a drizzle of oil, and then add 4 tablespoons of the batter to the pan.
  • Cook for around 2 minutes on each side. When it bubbles, flip it. Remove pancakes from the pan and repeat with the remaining mixture. Serve with coconut yogurt, chutney, curry or even alone!
