I started the month thinking of doing a post a day, some friends joined me as well and then I couldn’t post for the first two days. Sigh. My laptop crashed, my beloved MAC, it just stopped booting. Dropped it in the service station and now working on a standby windows machine which I took close to two days to get working at all.
And then there are the Chennai floods, some family and friends stuck in places, to be able to track them and see the general despair and calamity around. So heartbreaking. I was trying to focus my energies towards rescue stuff in social media. Trying to organise some stuff going from Bangalore-Delhi. Doing the least I can do sitting so far away. Do spare some thoughts for people in Chennai and help if you can.
Anyways, back here now and hopefully posting will continue. Starting with these buckwheat pancakes, I made in the weekend. The child was sick with fever and the usual viral infections doing rounds and just at the edge of recovering, and he asked for pancakes for breakfast. Didn’t want to make the maida ones and then saw buckwheat flour in the pantry. Inspiration stuck and I made these buckwheat pancakes and served them with caramelized apples and maple syrup. The child and I were both happy at the end of the meal!
Buckwheat flour is known as kuttu ka aata and is usually eaten during Navratri. Buckwheat is not a cereal but is related to rhubarb and is very healthy. It is known to be effective against diabetes, known to be high in protein and fibers! Super healthy way to eat some pancakes made from buckwheat, eh?
