For the pancakes

  2. Grease a 125 mm. (5") diameter non-stick pan with ¼ tsp of melted butter.
  3. Pour a ladleful of the batter, tilt the pan around quickly so that the batter coats the pan evenly. Spread ¼ tsp of melted butter evenly over it and cook it for 30 seconds.
  4. When the sides starts to peel off, turn the pancake around and cook the other side for another 30 seconds.
  5. Repeat steps 2 to 4 to make 5 more pancakes. Keep aside.

For the corn filling

  2. Add the capsicum and sauté on a medium flame for 2 minutes.
  3. Add the chilli flakes and corn and sauté on a medium flame for 1 minute.
  4. Add the white sauce and little salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Keep aside.

  2. Heat the oil in a broad non-stick pan, add the spring onion whites and greens and sauté on a medium flame for 30 seconds.
  3. Add all the other ingredients, including the tomato-onion mixture, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 3 to 4 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Keep aside.

How to proceed

  1. Divide the stuffing into 6 equal portions. Keep aside.
  2. Place a pancake on a clean, dry surface, put a portion of the corn stuffing in the centre, sprinkle 1 tbsp of cheese evenly over it and fold one side over the other to make a roll.
  3. Repeat step 2 to make 5 more stuffed pancakes.
  4. Pour ¼ cup of the prepared tomato sauce in a baking dish and spread it evenly. Place the stuffed pancakes on it.
  5. Pour all the remaining tomato sauce evenly over it. Finally sprinkle the cheese over it.
