- 1/2 cup maida
1/4 cup milk
Water as required
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp oil
2 Tbsp oil for cooking the pancakes
Mix flour, salt, egg, oil and enough milk to form a smooth paste.
Add the rest of the milk and some water to make a batter that falls smoothly off the spoon in a thick stream.
Let it rest for 15 minutes.

Once the oil is hot lower the heat, turn the oil around in the pan, and drain off the excess oil leaving the pan only brushed with oil.
