Belgium Pancakes for the Dosa Mela




Happy Vishu to all my friends. Photo Courtsey

For the last week I have been going on asking my daughter do you want to have pancakes, when you are back from school (thinking in my mind if I make them I can send it for Srivalli's Dosa Mela. She had said we can also make pancakes too for the event :-))))


And everyime I got the answer from my daughter, no not today.Last Friday I ask her again do you want me to make pancakes..... and she replied again NOPE. She love these pancakes but you know how teenager girls are.....

So yesterday evening I announced to my daughter and hubby I am going to make pancakes on Moday as it is almost the last day to send the entry for the Dosa Mela.
And then my daughter replied, oh that is why for the last week you have been going on asking me do you want to have pancakes.

You know, I didn't want to tell them I was intrested in making panckes only for the Dosa Mela.
I wanted to give them the impression, i was making the pancakes for them and not for the blog ;-)

Well didn't work I had to tell them the truth................
In belgium these pancakes are really famous. You will see them served in every coffee shops .You can have them with brown sugar, jam etc................


Eggs, flour, butter etc...
