MUSHROOM PANCAKES with just 1tsp oil !!!!


Pancakes with mushrooms!

Sounds bizarre, right???

But yes, that is why I am here… to make you feel good about the diet in fact life can be wonderful with such gorgeous dishes with awesome flavours.

Basically, it is a savoury pancake with a beautiful blend of simple seasoning and a superfood too. All I can say, what we are going to experience is spicy no oil pancake.

Let’s get into the nutritional factors of the key ingredients.

Mushrooms-Mushrooms are low in calories, great sources of dietary fiber and protein (good for plant-based diets). They also provide many important nutrients, including B vitamins, selenium, potassium, copper, and (particularly when exposed to the sun) vitamin D.

Gram flour/ Besan- Helps Lower Cholesterol. Gram flour contains healthy unsaturated fats which help in lowering the cholesterol level of the body. It’ a great food for diabetics. Moreover, it is a super diet for all gym and diet freaks like me.
