PoddaLe Sanna PoLo - snakegourd seeds pancake

As I said in the previous post, if padwal is made at home, "PoddaLe SannapoLo" has to follow. so here it is! :-D

PoddaLe SannapoLo
Snake gourd seeds pancake
1/2 cup snake gourd seeds
1/2 cup wheat flour
1 tsp chili powder (it is meant to be spicy and red hot!)
1/4 tsp asafoetida
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
salt to taste

oil for roasting

1. Mix all the ingredients together.
2. Knead it to a dough using the moisture from the seeds.
3. Add little water - spoonful at a time, if needed to bind the dough.
4. Make 2 balls of dough and pat on a hot griddle or pan.
5. Make holes and add oil for roasting.
6. Flip and let brown spots appear on both sides.

Note -
1. Though this is a pancake, it is not meant to be eaten as a snack or breakfast item. It is traditionally eaten as an accompaniment along with plain rice(sheeth) and daali tauy.
2. For more flavor, use coconut oil or combination of coconut oil and regular oil for roasting.
