Note: This is a simpler version of the sweet corn chicken soup that tastes just as wonderful. The chicken and egg make this a protein-packed meal. One bowl of soup is enough for me as dinner. Karan usually has two slices of my home-made brown bread with the soup.
Adding the raw egg in the soup might seem a little gross at first but this is actually how it's done in all restaurants too. The egg proteins coagulate and get cooked in the boiling soup pretty soon.
Try it and let me know how it turned out! You can also post any questions you might have!
Note: Sorghum or Jowar contains complex carbohydrates which our body breaks down at a much slower rate as compared to simple carbohydrates found in foods like white rice, white bread, white flour/maida. What this means is that sugar and energy are released slowly.
For those of us who sit and stare at a screen most of the day with minimal movement, this fact is a great boon. We need little energy released over a long time so that our bodies actually use it.
This dish actually started off as Jowar Dosa but ended up as an Uthapam after my experiments to find out what works best. A bit of rice flour is required to bind it together and to add to the taste. You can further reduce it and try out the recipe.
Note: This is my version of the whole wheat pancake recipe. I use multigrain whole wheat flour and powdered cane sugar.
Grinding the cinnamon can be a pain since we usually don't have it in our kitchens. I use the cinnamon sticks found in the whole garam masala and grind them in a mixie or grate it in a hand-held steel grater. Don't skip the cinnamon though since not only does it add amazing flavour, it's very good for health-fights the big three i.e. cancer, heart disease, diabetes.
This pancake will be a bit thicker than the traditional ones made with flour/maida and of course will not taste as good as the ones made with flour/maida. But, hey, this is healthy food! And it tastes pretty good with my raspberry fruit preserve (no sugar added! :))
