Date pancakes

Recipe By : Niru Gupta
Type: Desserts Serving: 8


  • Filling, soak for at least ½ an hour:
  • Dates (Khajoor), stoned and chopped fine 150 g (about 1 cup firmly packed )
  • Walnuts (Akhrot),  hopped fine 60 g
  • Orange rind, grated 1 tsp
  • Orange juice ¼ cup
  • Cover:
  • Flour (Maida) 1 cup (120 g)
  • Egg 1
  • Oil 1 tbsp.
  • Water as required
  • A little flour and water paste
  • Oil for deep-frying
  • Confectioner’s (Icing Sugar) for dusting the pancakes


  • Blend the filling ingredients well together to form a thick mass. Keep aside till required.
  • Add salt to the flour and rub in the oil.

  • Make a well in the centre of the flour, break the egg into it and start mixing the dough, and then knead it thoroughly, adding water as required, to make a stiff dough.

  • Rest the dough, covered well, for at least half an hour.

  • Roll the dough, pulling and stretching all the time, adding as little flour as possible, into rounds (about 6” round).

  • Lightly cook one side each of the rounds over a griddle, on high heat. Just keep it over the griddle and remove (do not brown or over cook).

  • Take a round, cooked side up, place 1 heaped tablespoon filling in the centre and flatten it out a bit.

  • Apply flour paste along the edges of the round and fold from 4 sides of the round towards the centre, overlapping the sides where they meet.

  • Heat the oil and add the ‘pancake’ over high heat. Lower the heat immediately and fry till a light brown.

  • Remove from heat and drain on absorbent paper.

  • To serve, re-fry the pancakes till brown and crisp.

  • Drain on absorbent paper. Transfer on to a serving dish, dust with the sugar, cut into four triangles and serve (vanilla ice cream goes well with it!).
