This may be the reason that I have always look for recipes that are savory or less sweet. And, things are exactly the opposite with Dr. Gulati. He still gets confused while emptying the dishwasher and arranging cleaned dishes. But, he exactly knows where I keep all the sweet things in the house how hard I try to hide them. I think because of him you will find sweet recipes too on this blog. If you find anything sweet that you like here then thank him (:P).

Heat a nonstick pan on medium heat. Add baking soda to the pancake batter and mix well. Pour about 1/4 cup batter on the lightly greased pan and spread the batter to make pancakes as thin as possible (thin pancake will be easy to roll).
