I have kept the recipe very simple and have used all the veggies that I had on hand.
Let’s begin the recipe by chopping and shredding your veggies. To ensure that the vegetables cook through, make sure they are thinly shredded and chopped. Feel free to add or subtract spices as per taste.
Pumpkin puree adds a nice touch and flavor to these pancakes. Combine everything in a bowl and pour in soda water. Soda water will make the pancakes light and fluffy.
Batter consistency should be neither thick nor too thin. From here on the recipe is straightforward. Spoon batter on a hot greased griddle and cook until golden brown.
