Split Black Gram Pancakes With Poppy Seeds


Hello and welcome back. Today I’m sharing a salty pancake recipe made from split black gram with a sprinkling of poppy seeds on it to make it crunchier, tastier and super fun. So let’s start with it—


  1. Split black gram – 250 gms.
  2. Salt – According to taste.
  3. Vegetable oil – For shallow frying.
  4. Water – According to need.
  5. Poppy seeds – 1 tsp.
  6. Black or white sesame – 1 tsp.


Step 1

Wash, clean and soak the black gram overnight in water. The next morning grind the split black gram finely using some water to make a batter of dropping consistency.

Step 2

To this batter add some salt and mix it up. Now take a pan and spread a portion of the batter using a ladle and spread it on the pan. Now spread some poppy seeds on top of the pancake evenly and shallow fry it using some vegetable oil. Cook it on medium to high flame till browned on both sides.

The pancake is ready. It is crunchy and tasty.

Note point – 1. You can use the poppy seed for coating the pancake or switch it with black sesame seeds. You can make it with crushed coconut or powdered peanuts on top of the pancake while cooking.

You can have it as a snack with a cup of hot coffee or serve it with coconut chutney.
