For the Cabbage Pancakes:

2 cups finely shredded cabbage

1/2 cup grated carrot

1/4 cup finely chopped green onions

2 large eggs

1/2 cup flour (can use all-purpose or whole wheat)

1/4 cup milk or water

1 tsp soy sauce

1 tsp sesame oil

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/4 tsp baking powder

Oil for frying

For the Yogurt Sauce:

1 cup plain yogurt

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp finely chopped fresh dill or parsley

1 clove garlic, minced

Salt and pepper to taste


Making the Pancakes:

1. Prepare the Vegetables:

Finely shred the cabbage.

Grate the carrot.

Finely chop the green onions.

2. Mix the Batter:

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, flour, milk (or water), soy sauce, sesame oil, salt, black pepper, and baking powder until smooth.

Add the shredded cabbage, grated carrot, and chopped green onions to the batter. Mix well to ensure the vegetables are evenly coated.

Heat a non-stick skillet or frying pan over medium heat and add a little oil.

Scoop about 1/4 cup of the batter onto the skillet for each pancake, flattening them slightly with a spatula.

Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through.

Repeat with the remaining batter, adding more oil to the skillet as needed.

Making the Yogurt Sauce:

1. Mix the Sauce:

In a bowl, combine the plain yogurt, lemon juice, chopped dill (or parsley), and minced garlic.

Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir until well combined.

2. Serve:

Serve the cabbage pancakes hot, with the yogurt sauce on the side for dipping.


Vegetable Variations: You can add other vegetables like finely chopped bell peppers, spinach, or zucchini to the pancake mixture.

Gluten-Free Option: Substitute the flour with a gluten-free flour blend.

Make Ahead: The batter can be made a few hours in advance and stored in the refrigerator until ready to cook.

Leftovers: Store leftover pancakes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in a skillet or microwave before serving.
