For the pancakes

  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup full cream milk
  • 2 cups cold water
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup vegetable oil for baking

For the mince filling

  • 400 grams beef mince
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 1 tsp spice for mince
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 small tin tomato paste
  • 1 garlic clove grated
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil


  • Mix together all ingredients with a blender, starting with the egg and milk, adding flour bit by bit in between the water.
  • Add one teaspoon oil to the mix.
  • Heat a pan to very hot, add just enough oil to cover the pan, spread evenly. Drain excess if too much, wipe side of pan with kitchen towel.
  • Use soup ladle to pour batter in heated pan - just enough to cover the pan's flat surface. Spread evenly.
  • It should start forming bubbles almost immediately. Bake until top appears mostly dry.
  • When one side comes loose easily (after about 30 - 40 seconds), flip.
  • Cook on other side for about 10 seconds and slide out onto a plate. Repeat.
  • Let the pancakes cool down for a cold platter before filling them. If served hot, you may fill the hot pancakes with hot mince.

For the mince filling

  • Fry the onions in the oil until soft.
  • Add mince and garlic. Fry for 5 minutes.
  • Add spices and tomato paste. Stir while frying.
  • Panfry until dry. Drain excess oil.
  • Cool down for cold mince pancakes or fill hot pancakes with hot mince.
