Shrove Tuesday marks the last day before Lent, traditionally a period of abstinence, associated with clearing your cupboards of things like sugar, fat and eggs. It is known as Pancake Day because it represents a good opportunity to use such ingredients, in the form of pancakes. Fret not, if your frying pans are not ready and you can’t flip pancakes at home. Just step out and savour the ones that suit your palate. Your toughest decision that day will be choosing which ones to go for, as you will have several pancake options right here in Mumbai. Stacked up and lathered in coulis, with plump berries and oodles of cream or simply slathered with honey, you can have your pick. And yes, there are savoury ones too. My top 5 recommendations:
High Fibre Oatmeal Pancakes at Indigo Delicatessen, Andheri West, Western Suburbs
Last but not the least, these light and fluffy pancakes with a savoury tomato garlic chutney are mouth-watering and offer a good respite to the taste buds. The sweet and spicy flavours help you kick start your day with a bang.
Belgian Chocolate Chip Pancakes at The Nutcracker, Lower Parel, South Mumbai
These moist and decadent pancakes slathered in chocolate and syrup, are stuff dreams are made of. Two pancakes in a portion and you are pampered thoroughly. Truly sinful and the best way to give in to your guilty pleasures.
Nutella and Banana Pancake at Jamjar Diner, Hill Road, Bandra West, Western Suburbs
Begin your day on a sweet, but fruity note, with this delicious pancake. The lethal combination of nutella and banana will leave you craving for more.
Stack of Pancakes at The Pantry, Fort, South Mumbai
This stack of pancakes oozing with cream cheese, home-made salted caramel sauce and fresh fruits is satiating and a delectable treat too. The well-balanced flavours make these pancakes even more mouth-watering.
White Chocolate Pancake at Fable, Juhu
This creamy, melt-in-the-mouth white chocolate pancake with compote and clarified butter fills your mouth with exceptional flavours. Works for non-chocolate lovers too.
