Vegetable Pancake Recipe

This is another fabulous and delicious recipe from my mum! She is a really great cook and I always tell her she needs to start a YouTube channel or something. Anyway, she wanted to share this vegetable pancake recipe with you guys since last year but I took a break from blogging and then I got busy with school so I wasn’t able to post until now. It’s such a simple, healthy and delicious recipe I’m sure you guys will enjoy it if you try it.


2 medium potatoes

1 carrot

1 onion

1 small or 1/2 a large beet

1 ginger

4-5 cloves of garlic

A few coriander leaves

These were the vegetables my mum used but feel free to substitute them with other vegetables that you prefer or may have in the fridge.


  1. Grate all the vegetables and mince the coriander, garlic and ginger.
  2. Mix the this with 3-4 tbsp. of rice flour/plain flour or any flour you prefer. You can use a GF flour if you want to make this recipe GF.
  3. Add salt and black pepper to the mixture according to your taste- I added 1 tsp. of salt and 1/2 tsp of black pepper.
  4. Mix everything really well.
  5. Add a bit of oil to a skillet/frying pan and add enough of the mixture to make a pancake- see image below. Cover the pan with a lid and let it cook on medium-high heat for 3-5 minutes and check to see if it’s done. When the bottom is done flip it over and cook the other side till both sides are cooked well and crispy.
  6. Repeat this till all your pancakes are done.
  7. You can garnish the pancakes with some fresh coriander leaves if you like.
  8. You can serve this with plain “dahi” (yogurt) or if you’re vegan you can serve it with vegan plain yogurt or vegan mayonnaise. Enjoy!

Easy Vegetable Paratha Recipe

A Very Special Vegetable Paratha Recipe

So a while back I took a poll on what you guys wanted to see on lifesfinewhine and a large number of you asked for vegan/vegetarian recipes and so I decided to finally post one. I actually have so many ready in my drafts I just never get time to edit the pictures and post them. Anyway, this recipe is extra special because it’s not one of mine it’s actually all the way from Niarobi from my mum! She has been trying so many new recipes these days and you guys know how nothing compares to a mothers cooking so I told her that the next time she makes something new/fun she should send me images and the recipe so I can share it with you guys. She decided to send this recipe because it turned out really good and it’s actually quite simple to make. Plus it’s vegan- my parents are vegetarian but the majority of the stuff they eat is vegan. I hope you enjoy this very special recipe!


1/2 cup grated cabbage
1/2 cup grated cauliflower
1/2 cup grated broccoli
1/2 cup sliced onions
1/2 tsp of grated/minced ginger
1/2 tsp of minced/chopped garlic
Cumin powder
Cumin seeds
Black pepper powder
2 cups plain flour/wheat flour

Instructions for the paratha

1) Mix either two cups of plain flour or two cups of wheat flour with 1/2 tsp of salt (or to taste), 2 tbsp of oil and add water to the mixture as needed. Make sure the dough isn’t too loose.

2) Let the dough rest for 20-30 minutes.

Instructions for the stuffing

1) Mix the cabbage, onions, cauliflower, ginger, garlic and broccoli.

2) Add salt and paprika as per your taste, 1 tsp of cumin powder, 1/2 tsp of cumin seeds and 1/2 tsp of black pepper powder to the vegetables and stir fry them with a bit of oil till they are sautéed.

Tip: For a more spicy kick add a little more paprika and for a more mild flavour add a little less paprika or no paprika at all. 

Instructions for the stuffed paratha

1) Take about 3 tbsp of the finished dough and roll it into a circle.

2) Take the stuffing and add about 3-4tbsp of the stuffing to the center.

3) Make sure you have moved the stuffing around and it is laying flat on the center of the round paratha.
4) Now fold it three times as shown below.

5) Add a bit of oil to the pan and let the paratha heat on both sides until it is golden brown.

6) Once it is fully cooked you can enjoy it with dahi with spices or if you’re vegan like me you can eat it with ketchup/hot sauce/vegan ranch.
