Curry Pancakes!

I'm pretty good with leftovers. Very good, in fact. I can feed a family of 4 for 4 nights straight on one 2 kilo chook --and one of those is a full-on roast chook meal that uses half the bird!

I'm always thinking up new ways to use leftovers, and I sometimes purposefully make enough for leftovers to see what I can do with them.

This wasn't one of those times... I just make a huge amount of curry! Chicken, carrot, capsicum, curry. I won't bore you with how I made it as there's at least as many different ways to make a curry as there are people on this earth.

But what to do with the leftover curry?

Why, make pancakes, of course!

Here's what you do: take your leftover curry and mix some water into it so it's fairly thin. Mix in self-raising flour till it's a consistency of thick thick pancake batter.

Crnk up a large hotplate or frypan. Cook em like you would could normal pancakes, except sprinkle both side with a bit of sea salt.

Then you eat them! There were very tasty and I even got BIL (he's a very finicky eater) to try them and he really enjoyed them.

You never know what you'll come up with till you try.

Now that's not one I would have thought of, but I'm sure they were tasty!
You cook like me -- always up for experimentation. The kitchen is a laboratory, a canvas upon which to let the imagination runs free...
Glad to hear your "Morning Tea" benefit went well!

Naturelady: Yup, we definitely cook the same way! Heck, if you eat the same stuff all the time it gets boring. The morning tea went great, but next year I'll do fewer dishes but with larger quantities.
