Tips for variation for spinach - Palak pancakes

To make this a vegan pancake recipe, add water instead of milk.

Use vegetable oil instead of melted butter while cooking pancakes.

Instead of cooking spinach and then pureeing it, you may chop spinach leaves very fine and then add the chopped spinach to the pancake batter. The chopped spinach gets cooked along with the pancake .

I make these eggless pancakes but if your diet allows, you may add 1 beaten egg to the pancake batter to get fluffier pancakes.
