Once bubbles appear and the batter is not runny turn it over and basically cook each side for about 35 – 45 seconds

Continue till all your batter is finished and serve with a variety of chutneys or with a tasty potato curry.

Tip of the day

 
White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
