Pancake is a popular American breakfast which is served with fruits, butter or maple syrup. The pancake batter is usually prepared with a mixture of flour, eggs, sugar and butter. The chickpea pancake is a spinoff from the same recipe, substituting all-purpose flour with chickpea flour – which is made by grinding the chickpea beans to a fine powder. This makes the chickpea pancake very high in protein. You can also use gram flour or Besan for the same recipe. All the ingredients are combined together and made into a fluffy pancake which can be served with vegetables or dips of choice.
