This is a very healthy breakfast with full of nutrition. We generally have it on Sundays as breakfast or in our brunch menu. It's super easy and super healthy.

Ingredients (serves 6 | makes 14 )

  • 500 gms Yellow split peas (dry)
  • 1/4 cup chopped Tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped Onions
  • 1 teaspoon Salt (add as per individual preference)
  • 1 cup Canola or Any vegetable oil


  1. Wash and soak the lentils overnight or atleast for 5 - 6 hours
  2. In a blender add the soaked lentils (in small quantities) and add salt and blend it into a fine thick batter. Add water to make it into a pancake batter consistency.
  3. Add onions and tomatoes in the batter
  4. On a hot crepe pan add 1 - 2 teaspoon oil and spread it evenly.
  5. Take a ladle full of batter and pour it on the pan. Spread it like a pancake.
  6. Cook each side of the batter for 1 mins on medium flame.
  7. You can serve this pancake hot with yogurt as accompaniment.

  • What an interesting idea. I’d need to be really organised with the lentils though. Too bad if I forgot to soak overnight — 5 to 6 hours! Whoa!


  • WoOoo! So happy for this recipe as I’m on a meat cleanse for 30 days.
    Thank you so much for sharing. Now I have something else to add to my cooking list after going mental buying all this fake meat yesterday.


  • Shouldn’t lentil pancakes have lentils in them?
