Chef Christian Faure, M.O.F (Master Craftsman of France), was recently in Mumbai and I happen to stumble upon a very handy tip for strawberries: he says that if strawberries are placed in the sun for 10 minutes; the warmth helps out to bring the flavour of the fruit. I haven't tried it though but would love to hear from you if you noticed any change :)
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 egg whites
1 cup milk
1tsp baking powder
1tsp vanilla extract
maple syrup/honey, powdered sugar & some strawberries to serve
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl and keep it aside.
Take the wet ingredients in another bowl and mix well. Slice thin slices of strawberries.
Mix both the wet and the dry ingredients together slowly. Add the sliced strawberries and stir very gently.
Grease the skillet lightly, and drop about 1/4 cup of the mixture. Spread it lightly.You will see bubbles popping on the surface and will also see the edges done. It's time for you to flip the pancakes with the help of a spatula and cook the other side as well.
Serve your hot pancakes with maple or honey or strawberry syrup, powdered sugar and some sliced or whole strawberries. I got about 4 pancakes.
My tastebuds: It definitely made my day and added a sweet fragrance to my morning.
