Rice and urad dal is a perfect formula, whether in the form of idli, dosa or upma, as the duo gives a perfect combination of energy and protein needed for a busy day. These Mini Beetroot Pancakes are all the more wondrous because they pack in more protein from soya flour, vitamins from beetroot and iron from til. Even kids who do not like beetroot will surely indulge in these pancakes as they are colourful and yummy!

Nice and colourful mini pancakes which are sure to appeal people of all ages...I liked the idea of using soya flour and urad dal flour as compared to besan which is used in most pancakes.

I always believe that colours appeal all the kids....and if you try to add the natural colours....using beetroot or are also giving your kids nutrition in the form of small pancakes...loved it..damn easy and tasty!!
