Makes 6 pancakes
- Flour 1.5 cups

- Salt a pinch
- Sugar 2 to 3 teaspoons
- Melted butter 3 tablespoons
- Eggs 2
- Whole milk 1 Cup
- Lightly fry or saute the grated carrots in a heated pan for 2 to 3 minutes, using butter. This will add more flavor to the carrots and will also be more easy to mix with the flour.
- Once sauteed, add 2 teaspoons of sugar to the carrots, mix well and keep aside.

- Heat and iron griddle or non stick pan and grease well with oil or butter. Make sure you keep the stove on medium to low heat, and adjust the heat accordingly so that the pancakes won't get burnt.
- Pour 1 small ladle of batter on to the pan, you might need to slightly press the batter since it is little thick.
- Wait for the pancake to get cooked from the bottom, until the bubbles starts appearing on top.
- When the bubbles start to come on top of the pancake, gently flip the pancake, let it get cooked on the other side for about another minute. Once the pancake is cooked you can remove it from the pan and repeat the process for the next pancakes. Always adjust the heat of the stove in case the pan gets overheated.
Serve the delicious pancakes hot or at room temperature with extra honey or maple syrup and dollop of thick yogurt!
