This is sort of pancakes you require, thin and rollable, not the much smaller and thicker Scottish or American version

Making the pancakes,

Sieve the flour and salt into a bowl, add egg and half the water, beat to a smooth paste. It will go, get someone else to help if needs be, add the rest of the water and the milk a little at a time, whisk well and leave to stand. Some people insist on leaving for at least half an hour, but I don't always, and I never really notice any difference.

Lightly grease a small fry or pancake pan about 15cm or 6 inches across, get it fairly hot. Add a spoonful of batter, enough to give a thin even coat, and cook until light gold colour on the underneath. Now comes the fun part, turn the pancake, and cook the other side, only attempt tossing in the air, if you don't mind picking it of the floor! Also don't be surprised if the first one looks rubbish, they often are, Carry on until you have about 16 small pancakes.

Making the filling

Mix the curried beans with the cottage cheese, add salt and pepper, Share it out amongst the pancakes and roll them up, arrange carefully in a greased ovenproof seving dish and cover with foil.

Put in a preheated oven for about 8 to 10 minutes at 180c or gas mark 4.


While in the oven heat the soured cream over a very gentle heat, do not allow to boil or it will curdle.

Take the pancakes out of the oven remove foil and spoon cream down the middle, sprinkle on a small amount of Dill

Extra information

This recipe will serve between four and six people.

If you make large batches of plain pancakes, they keep well in the freezer for 3 months when stacked with waxed paper between each in a freezer bag.

If you really want to work hard at this recipe make your own curried beans from scratch, there are many recipes online, but the time element makes the famous canned variety a safe and easy bet.
