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