CELERY PANCAKES

Pancakes made with celery may sound a little strange, but wait until you taste them!   They will purify your blood and strengthen your central nervous system. 

1/2 tsp.  Caraway Seeds

1/2 tsp.  Oregano Seeds

1/2 tsp.  Cumin Seeds

1/2 tsp.  Fresh Ground Black Pepper

1/2 tsp.  Celery Seeds

1 cup Finely Chopped Celery

1 cup  Garbanzo Flour

1 tsp. Salt

Ghee or Oil (not olive oil)

Mix ingredients in a bowl, adding water to form a smooth pancake batter.  Fry in ghee or oil just like you would a pancake!  Serve with yogurt or sour cream.  

Makes 8-10 pancakes. 

Charanpal's Notes:  As long as you get the right consistency with the batter, there's really nothing you can do wrong with these pancakes.  Be careful not to put the pan on too high of heat (your oil will start smoking).  I am in love with this savory pancake dish.  I also add one tablespoon of fresh chopped ginger to my batter.  Garbanzo flour might be hard to find out there for some of you.  I've never made these with anything other than garbanzo, but I bet any gluten-free substitute would be good.  I personally do not use sour cream topping, but I do enjoy these with cashew-yogurt, or cottage cheese and sauerkraut topping!!  In addition, you can chop up an apple, shred some carrots, garnish with soaked almonds... the possibilities are endless!
