Kale And Potato Pancakes

Kale-pot pancake
These pancakes were made by H a couple of weekends back. They tasted so good that I just had to jot it down here. Now, H never measures anything while cooking, so I only have approximate amounts of the ingredients that went into this recipe.

Ingredients:
2 cups kale, chopped as finely as possible
2 medium potatoes, peeled and grated (squeeze out the excess mositure)


To grind to a very coarse mixture:
1 medium onion
4-5 green chillies
3-4 curry leaves
3 Tbsp corn
A tiny piece of ginger
1-2 garlic cloves

Mix together-
2 eggs
½ cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup rice flour
1-2 Tbsp yogurt
2 Tbsp shredded Mozzarella cheese.
1 tsp cumin seeds, pounded coarsely (I used a mortar and pestle)
1 tsp baking powder
Salt
Oil/butter to grease the griddle/skillet

Method:
Mix all the ingredients listed above to form a relatively thick batter. A little bit of water may be used to bring the batter together.

Grease a hot skillet with oil/butter; pour a ladleful of the batter. Tilt and move the skillet around a bit so that the batter spreads out a little. Try and spread it out as evenly as possible with the back of the ladle (not very easy since the batter's really thick).


Cover and cook on medium heat until one side is done. Then, flip and cook the other side similarly. Repeat with the remainder of the batter.

Serve with sour cream. I had mine with ketchup.
