Spicy Radish Pancake

If you like spicy pancakes, this one is flippin' great!

Hari says

Mooli is a long white radish also known as a Daikon. It's used in oriental cooking but also loved in Indian cuisine too. It has a nose tingling pungency and is great in salads as well as a filling in some stuffed breads. This got me thiking that the flavours would really work in a spicy pancake. 

I think this dish is delicious becuase if, like me, you prefer savoury pancakes then this is a little bit different. It's nice and quick to make and the mooli gives a wonderful crunch to the soft pancake batter. Because I make it using atta or roti flour, it's almost like a bit of a cheat's version of Mooli Parantha. Like the Mooli Parantha, I have spiced it with cumin, chillies and garam masala but everthing is mixed into the batter and poured out as you would a pancake. 

  • Ingredients
  • Method


  • 50g roti flour (atta)
  • 1 egg
  • 150ml milk
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp melted ghee
  • 50g mooli, shredded
  • 1 green chilli chopped
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • ½ tsp dried methi
  • ½ tsp chilli powder
  • large pinch coriander leaves, chopped
  • red chilli, chopped (optional)



  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a jug, except the coriander.
  2. Heat up your pancake pan and wipe with oil.
  3. Take a ladle full of the mixture and pour on to the pan and rotate it around to fill the pan. Spread out the mooli. Leave to cook for 2-3 minutes. Once it has firmed up, use a spatula to turn the pancake over and cook the other side for another 2-3 minutes.
  4. Place onto a plate and sprinkle with chopped coriander, and chopped chillies.

Served with

This is great with a spicy pickle and some yoghurt on the side!
