Crepes are very thin pancakes with some fillings inside. I prefer sweet ie something prepared  with fruits and nuts most of the time :) Makesure not to add water in the batter. Instead milk is added for making the batter watery and smooth. This is a veg version so anybody would love to have it specially kids would adore. This is super healthy and filling. Fillings can be of any fruits like mangoes, bananas, strawberries, fig, apples with nuts etc etc


1 cup Maida

1 cup Milk.

3 tbsp Castor sugar

1 tsp Vanilla essence

1 tsp Melted Butter.

Pinch of Salt


2 Apples chopped

1/2 cup of dried cranberries

2 tsp Sugar.

1 tbsp Butter.


In a bowl mix flour, sugar and salt. Then add milk slowly and beat until the batter becomes smooth. Then add melted butter and vanilla essence and mix again. Refrigarate for a hour. Mean while make the fillings. Heat nonstick pan. Put 1 tbsp of butter and saute chopped apples. Sprinkle with sugar and cook for 5 to 6 min or till pieces becomes tender. Add the dried cranberries over. Transfer them into a bowl.

Heat a non stick pan.Grease with butter or cooking spray. When the pan is hot, pour a ladleful of batter and swirl the pan to coat. When the edges of crepe becomes dry and brown, flip it over and cook other side until slight brown.

Place them on a plate. Take a spoonful of apple filling and place in the center and fold them from both the sides as shown in the picture. Serve chill or hot :)

Sweet buns is one of the popular special recipe from Mangalore. Some have this for breakfast and some enjoy as a tea time snack. These can be stored for a day too. Back to the recipe. In this the dough has to be kept to ferment nearly for 4 to 5 hours. The softness fluffy texture comes with the addition of mashed ripe banana. The flour used can be both of wheat flour or maida. But I always prefer using wheat flour as its healthier and always tastes good :)

11/2 Cup Wheat flour

1 Big Ripe Banana.

2 tbsp Yogurt.

2 tbsp Sugar (depends on ur sweetness)

1/8 tsp Cooking soda.

Pinch of Salt.

1 tsp Ghee,

1 tsp Cardamom pd.

Water as needed.

Oil for frying.


First step is mash the bananas well adding sugar and cardamom pd. Add rest of the ingredients one by one except oil. Knead into a smooth dough, Make sure you apply ghee on your hands while kneading to avoid sticky dough. Keep the covered dough at room temperature for about 4 to 5 hours.

Heat oil for frying. Divide the dough into small balls and roll them into small poori. Deep fry them under medium flame on both the sides till they are puffed and golden. Drain on paper napkins and serve hot.
