Simran’s Mango Coconut Pancakes

I had to try the mango coconut pancake recipe that Simran posted a few weeks back. What better motivation to host an impromptu pancake party over the weekend? They were a great change from the usual ones we usually make around here. These are moist and the mango really comes through. Sweet but not overly so. One of our guest pancake eaters said the flavor reminded him of a “lassi turned into a pancake” which should give you a good idea of the flavor. I think I’ll be using the leftover mango pulp to make some mango margaritas…  or maybe, just maybe, Simran will share her super yummy lassi recipe with me.

This recipe also gave us a good excuse to stop by Jai Ho, San Francisco’s newest Indian market (in the same mall as the Safeway on Webster Street). It was fun to browse around and the owner  Rakesh and his son gladly offer tips and advice to novices of indian cooking like Luca and me. Best yet, they have a blog where they have been posting weekly recipes.  I see some Aloo Gobi in my future.
