Ingredients

  • 1 cup wholemeal wheat flour

Tips for a Crispy and Tasty Crepe

Adding a few more ingredients can make the crepe crispier and tastier.

  • The Pan: The pan used can be made of iron or aluminium to get best results.

  • The most important point is for the pan to be hot but not too hot that it will burn the crepe. However if it is not hot enough the batter will not raise off the pan and will stick to it. Too much water will also make it stick to the pan. Some amount of practice is necessary before one can succeed in making these crepes.

  • It might be a good idea to use a non-stick pan.

  • A ¼ cup of rice flour will make the crepe crisp.

  • Another option is to add ½ a cup of coarse semolina can also make the crepe crispy.

Instructions

  1. Batter: Add wheat flour and 150 ml water and mix in a bowl until smooth.
  2. Add salt to taste.
  3. Add the vegetables and coriander to the batter and stir until smooth.
  4. Add 50ml water and stir again until the batter is not too thick or too watery.
  5. Heat pan on high heat or flame.
  6. Add 1 teaspoon oil on the pan around the edges.
  7. Pour the batter from outside to the centre of the pan.
  8. Spread the batter evenly in a circular shape.
  9. Add oil on the edges of the crepe.
  10. Cook for some time and flip over to the other side.
  11. Pour 1 teaspoon oil on the crepe and on the edges.
  12. Flip over and pour 1 teaspoon oil on the crepe
  13. Flip over again so that the oil gets cooked.
  14. Fold into half and place on a plate

Other Options of Vegetables and Herbs

The simple wheat flour crepe can take on different flavours when you add other kinds of vegetables and herbs. Try out the following options and experiment to your heart's content:

Other vegetable options that can be used are finely chopped onions or cabbage. I even use brussel sprouts when they are available.

  • In place or with the fresh coriander one can use fenugreek leaves, mint leaves or curry leaves. Each of these herbs will give it a different flavour.

    • When fresh herbs are not available I use dry herbs but first pour boiling water over the herb to make it soft before mixing in the batter.
  • Those who like a bit of chilli can add green chillies that are finely chopped, seeds and all.

  • Hot mango or lemon pickle would go well with this savoury vegetable crepe.

Natural Benefits of Wheat and Wheat Grass

Wheat is one of the most commonly used cereals throughout the world. It is a good source of energy and is good for maintaining a healthy body. It is something we take for granted and we are not usually aware that it has healing properties as well. Of course, it is best when it is used as whole wheat rather than in its refined form.

Some of the health benefits of wheat are:

  • Starch and gluten in wheat provides heat and energy for the body.

  • The inner bran coat provides phosphates and other mineral salts.

  • The outer bran provides much-needed roughage for easy elimination.

  • The wheat germ contains Vitamins B and E.

  • the protein in wheat helps to build and repair muscular tissue.

  • Wheat grass juice furnishes the body with vital nourishment, is a body cleanser and neutralizer of toxins.

  • Wheat grass juice contains nearly 70 percent of chlorophyll and is a rich source of vitamins A, B and C.

  • Wheat grass also contains minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, sulfur, cobalt and zinc.

Your vegan savory crepe looks quite nice. From what I could see in the video, you have really dominated the technique! I think I would mess it up a coupple of times before I nail it :)

Hi Claudia, it does take a few tries and experimenting before getting the hang of making it. All the best. Don't give up until you master it!

So tasty but I don't have any leaves or carrot or wheat flour :(

Hi Yum,

You can make it with any kind of flour, though wheat flour helps with the binding. Sometimes I don't add any of the veges either, just salt to taste.
