Buttermilk Pancakes/ Majjiga Attu


Buttermilk pancakes/Majjiga attulu is my all time fav breakfast. I often make this pancakes for Princy's breakfast as she loves it too. We can have this without any chutneys & usually served as a breakfast or as a snack option.

  • Low fat buttermilk - 1/2 litre
  • Raw Rice - 1 & 1/2 Cup
  • Fenugreek seeds - tsp
  • All purpose flour - 2tbsp
  • Curry leaves - 1 or 2 strands
  • Green chillies - 3
  • Onion - 2large
  • Cumin Seeds - tsp
  • Baking Soda - 3/4 tsp
  • Salt - as per taste
  • Oil - as required
  • Wash, clean and soak raw rice at least 4-5 hours along with fenugreek seeds in low fat buttermilk. (I did soaking process afternoon 12pm-5pm)
  • After 5hours grind them to make thick batter. (Evng 5pm) And set the batter overnight.
  • The next day morning before making the pancakes, add all purpose flour, curry leaves, cumin seeds, baking soda, finely chopped onions, green chillies, salt and mix well to combine all ingredients.
  • Now take a non-stick pan, add oil and heat it. Pour a small laddle full of batter, do not spread it. The pancakes should be thick. Drizzle oil and cook in low medium flame.
  • Once the bottom starts browning at the edges flip over to other side.
Serve hot with any chutneys of your choice. :)

  • Do not add water as we do for dosas, just mix the batter and use it.
  • Always cook in medium flame to get the perfect golden crust.
