Strawberry pancakes

Strawberries are something very exotic and they are slowly becoming popular in India, primarily because of farms coming up in cold regions like hill stations; hence, they are easily available to the common man now. Children, for sure, get attracted to the fruit due to its bright colour, size and looks.

The recipe that I am sharing will help mothers and households utilise strawberries in a different form other than just eating it straight. It is a fun recipe that anyone will definitely love. No expertise is required in making it. As long as one follows the quantities and directions, it’s fine. These pancakes are good for breakfast and even as a light snack.
