Tuesday bakings and All Flour Pancake

Tried baking the Irish Soda Bread again. This time, I'd looked up a couple of videos on how to make this properly, so used the techniques from there. Also, baked it using a different setting in my microwave. And it finally turned out really 'soft' and nice. The last time around, it'd turned a bit hard after cooling, though still edible..
Took 1/2 cup maida, 1/2 cup atta, 1/2 cup buttermilk, some salt, sugar and 1/3 tsp baking soda.
Mixed it all with a spoon first, and then kneaded it on a floured surface for 2-3 mins. Tried to do it the way they did it in the videos! Then baked it in a pre heated oven.

Next I tried the All Flour Pancake from Simple Indian Cooking , a bit modified..
Here's a pic, took while eating!!

You need:
1/2 cup Rice Flour
1/2 cup wheat Flour
2 tbsps of Gram Flour
I added 2 tbsps of Ragi / Nachni flour
1/2 tsp Jeera/cumin seeds powder
1 small onion finely cut(This is optional if you don't eat onion just skip it)
Salt as per taste

Mix all the flours together and then add the finely cut onion. Add salt and mix it well. Add enough water to get dosa consistency.
Make it like regular dosas, but a little . Cover and cook till one side is brown. Then turn and cook the other side as well.

Makes a healthy breakfast!
