Bulgur wheat proves to be a good breakfast food, as it provides an adequate amount of energy (calories) and protein. Since your body requires calcium, the addition of curds improves the calcium content of the recipe. These pancakes are ideal for your second trimester as they are rich in fibre and will ease your digestive problems too.

Tasty pancakes made from bulgar. The pancakes have a nice sourness to them with the addition of curds. Very healthy to have as plain flour has been substituted with whole wheat flour.
