This month RCI event-North-east indian cuisine was quiet interesting, seven sisters states together. At the first glance, I thought I had a huge variety in front of me to explore and cook for the event. But the truth no, surprise to see the tribes and ethnic group came from the different neighboring countries. So the food, the language, the culture, religion differ each other.
Bhags just did an amazing job to tell about each state and provided recipes too, to make the life easier. I went through all those recipes. But nothing impressed me, may be the recipes called for special ingredients or the main ingredients is Pork or Fish (mostly dry).
I just ended up with something to please my palette and very common ingredient in every household.
The Sikkim food “Kodo Ko Roti” is a pancake prepared with finger millet. Usually served with Achar (pickle), I guess for breakfast. Millet is one of their main dietary foods. The pancake is very quick, simple but mostly a healthy start! I found the recipe here.
But I was little confused in the way of preparation. They say “ Knead to make paste”, so I made like a thick batter consistency and spread like pancake!
Finger millet pancake
I just used 1 cup of Finger millet Flour, 3/4 warm water, 1 tsp of sugar, make a thick consistency paste and spread in hot griddle, cook in medium flame. Smear some ghee and enjoy with pickle!
