Easy pancake dish made with semolina. These semolina pancakes were topped with sausages and mixed vegetables but you can use any toppings of choice (chicken, ham, bacon, minced meat, shrimp, vegetables…whatever) or you can totally skip the toppings and make this plain. Just skip the sausages and mixed vegetables for a plain semolina pancake recipe. This recipe makes about 7 pancakes.
How to make semolina pancakes
1. Sift the semolina into a bowl, add the baking powder, sugar, nutmeg. Mix.
2. Add the powdered milk to a bowl, add about 1.5 cups of water to dissolve. Break the eggs into another bowl, add the melted butter, mix eggs and melted butter together then pour it into the milk. Mix thoroughly,
3. Pour the milk mixture into the flour bowl and mix gently until you get a smooth batter.
4. Add a tablespoon of oil to a pan, heat up, pour in the some of the pancake batter then immediately add the whatever quantity of toppings you desire(sausages and vegetables) to the surface. Fry on medium-low heat.
5. Once you notice bubbles on the surface and the underside is well cooked and the edges are already looking solid, gently flip(careful so the toppings don’t come off) to the other side where the toppings are and just pan fry until the top is done too(if your pan is hot enough, this should take only about a minute or two maximum).
Repeat until you have exhausted all the batter.
Done. Your semolina pancake is ready. Serve immediately while hot with any dip or sauce of choice. I served mine with a dip mixture of mayonnaise and tomato ketchup. I recommend this, but you can do a tomato or pepper sauce.
I used store bought, already made mixed vegetables that I just warmed over in the microwave. If you will be using vegetables as toppings and yours are raw vegetables, steam(not for too long so it won't totally lose its crunchiness) or stir-fry it first before topping on the pancakes.
