Kitchen Fun - Paneer Pancakes

In my Obsession with Pancakes series, the next one I present are Paneer Pancakes. Sometimes called as Cottage Cheese, Paneer is non-aged, non-melting soft cheese made from curdling milk. Although Paneer doesn’t have a taste in itself, it absorbs all the flavors that from the dish it goes into, thus making it part of the dish; and yet somehow stands out too.

For a while I was thinking of making savory pancakes using Paneer. And here they are now, come to fruition in my kitchen. They are light and fluffy with distinct flavor of cream; and tingling your senses with the savory-sweet taste.

And now for my recipe.


Whole Wheat Flour - 1/2 Cup

Paneer - 1 Cup

Egg - 1 medium sized

Sugar - 1/4 Cup

Milk - 3/4 Cup

Baking Powder - 1/2 Teaspoon

Salt -  pinch

Butter - for cooking

Preparation Steps:

1) Grate the Paneer to powder with some granularity.

2) In a bowl, mix Whole Wheat Flour, Sugar, Salt and Baking Powder. To it add the grated / blended Paneer.

3) Now add Milk and Egg to it. Mix into semi-thick Pancake Batter.

4) Pour a ladle full of the Paneer Pancake Batter on to the hot skillet.

5) Cook on both sides till they turn golden brown.

6) Top with Powdered Sugar before serving.


1) I blended Paneer in a blender into a coarse powder. If that is easy for you, go ahead and use your blender or mixer.

2) Add Sugar only if you want savory-sweet flavor. For a complete savory flavor just add Salt and Pepper, no Sugar.

3) You can also top it with Maple Syrup or Whipped Cream.
