Coconut Flour Pancakes with Lime

Coconut flour makes superb gluten-free pancakes. Here, it is combined with rice flour to tame its tendency to sop up liquid, and the batter is seasoned with a dash of turmeric to brighten the colour. The pancakes are naturally slightly sweet – delicious sprinkled with sugar, lime juice and ultra-thin slivers of lime zest.
Makes 6

coconut flour 2 tbsp
rice flour 2 tbsp
eggs (organic or free-range) 3, lightly beaten
coconut milk (preferably organic) 100ml, whisked until smooth
ground turmeric ¼ tsp
sea salt 1/8 tsp
vegetable oil for frying

to serve:
sugar
lime juice
thin sliversof lime zest

1) Put the flours, eggs, coconut milk, turmeric and salt in the bowl of a food processor, and whiz until smooth. Decant into a jug, leave for a few minutes, then stir.

2) Spray a non-stick pancake pan with oil (see Blog/Perfect Pancakes) and place over medium heat.

3) Pour in about half a ladleful of the batter. Tilt the pan and swirl the batter to a thin circle, about 15cm diameter.

4) Cook for 30–40 seconds, or until the edge and bottom are starting to colour and you can easily slip a spatula underneath.

5) Flip the pancake over and cook for another minute or so.

6) Slide the pancake onto a warm plate and cover with baking parchment or paper towel to prevent sticking. Repeat with the rest of the batter.

7) Serve warm sprinkled with sugar, lime juice and a few very thin slivers of lime zest.

Chick-Pea Pancakes with Nigella Seeds and Turmeric

Chick-pea flour, or gram flour as it is often called, makes beautiful lacy-edged pancakes, but they need careful handling. Use a little more oil than usual and make sure it is really hot before you add the batter. Top with a blob of pungent pickle and a thick yogurt and cucumber sauce.
Makes 6

chick-pea flour 150g
sea salt ½ tsp
ground turmeric ½ tsp
nigella seeds (black onion seeds) 1½ tsp
freshly ground black pepper to taste
water 300ml
vegetable oil for frying

1) Sift the flour, salt and turmeric into a bowl. Combine with the seeds and a few grindings of black pepper.

2) Make a well in the centre. Gradually whisk in the water, drawing in the flour from around the edge. Cover and set aside until you're ready to cook.

3) Whisk the batter again just before cooking.

4) Heat a non-stick pancake pan (see Blog/Perfect Pancakes) then add 2 tsp of oil. When it's almost smoking, swirl in a ladleful of the batter using a circular motion to make a very thin circle, not quite big enough to fill the pan. Lift the edges when just beginning to set and let the uncooked batter run underneath.

5) Fry over medium-high heat for 50–60 seconds or until bubbles appear on the surface.

6) Using a fish slice, carefully flip the pancake over and cook the other side for another 50–60 seconds, or until patched with gold. Slide onto a plate and keep warm.

7) Repeat with the rest of the batter, adding more oil each time.

8) Serve with a pickle of your choice and some chopped cucumber mixed with thick yogurt.
