Bhakhra made in an “Ebelskiver” pan. The dutch call these Poffertjes

By Rita Jamshed Kapadia 7 comments

I wandered around in the kitchen section of Costco almost unconsciously thinking I need better non-stick pans. My eyes rested on a wonderful box of Ebelskiver  pancake pan.
Somehow I thought this pan could make excellent Indain Parsi Bhakras. I bought the pan.

Rushed home and dug out the bhakhra recipe from my cookbook for #fiestafriday

I know Bhakhras are fried, so I added some good old ghee(clarified butter) to the pan and fried them on the stove in the Ebelskiver Pan.

Here is what I got, the dutch also call them Poffertjes.

Here is the recipe enjoy.

The ebelskiver pan comes on sale on Amazon or Costco. Limited use but saves using a lot of oil/fats when frying.

Now you’re talking – I have two of these pans; one is electric and the other goes on top of my stove. Thanks for experimenting and sharing your experience/pan/recipe with Fiesta Friday. Now I have to go back and get the recipe.
