These pancakes are so light, airy, and soft that you won’t even notice that it is not the regular pancakes that we all have grown up eating. In fact, the original recipe didn’t call for adding carrot puree to the pancake batter, but we love to make our meals even healthiest than their healthier version. So, we thought of traveling that extra mile for you and your families. To prepare carrot puree, you simply have to peel, cut, boil (or steam) the carrots before giving them a nice churn in the grinder.
We are using a simple skillet for the recipe but you can experiment a bit and cook it using an electric griddle. This kitchen appliance has become more and more popular. If you’re curious about it here’s a guide you might want to check out.
