Recently, I watched one of my favorite Cooking and Travel series â€˜Shane Deliaâ€™s Spicy Journeyâ€™. A guy from Malta travels around Middle Eastern countries to find out new recipes and spices to cook nicely looking (and I guess tasty) meals. Anyhow, after I watched the series last time I was motivated enough to try a dish just having its supposed look in mind â€“ I know, probably an odd motivation to try something new â€“ but thatâ€™s the truth about the following recipe. For an amateur cook I think the result is quite respectable, donâ€™t you think? By the way – I am so grateful it also turned out delicious, but unquestionable the most beautiful dish I ever prepared.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â INGREDIENTS for 4 servings
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â For the filling:
- 100 g edamer cheese, grated
- 4 tbsp. corn, canned
- 50 g Philadelphia Cheese or crÃ¨me fraiche
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 200 g beef, ground
- Salt and pepper
- A handful fresh chive, chopped
- 1 tbsp. Mango Chutney
- For side: Cherry tomatoes-cucumber salad with olive oil and balsamic vinegar
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â For the dough:
- 200 g flour
- 3 eggs
- 400 ml milk
- 1 tsp. salt
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â INSTRUCTIONS
- Start preparing the pancake dough. In a bowl, mix all the ingredients.
- Heat a frying pan (if not a non-stick, you may need to melt a piece of butter or oil) and when hot, pour in some of the pancake mixture.
- Fry the pancakes on both sides until golden brown. The first pancake is always a bit of a mess. If you need the mixture thicker just add some flour. In case you need it thinner add more milk.
- Repeat the cooking process until the mixture is finished.
- For the filling place the ground beef into a pan over medium heat â€“ cook it until it is completely through salt and pepper to taste.
- Add the corn and garlic to the pan and let it cook for 2 more minutes.
- Preheat oven to 160 Â°C.
- Start preparing the pancake rolls. Take one pancake sprinkle it with some crÃ¨me fraiche and fill it with the beef mixture. Roll tightly and cut it into large pieces then put them into a casserole dish (use some butter or olive oil to sprinkle the casserole dish).
- Lastly, sprinkle some cheese and olive oil on the rolls and leave them in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes
Serve the pancakes on some mango chutney with fresh chives on top and a tomato-cucumber salad on side.
Cheers with sunbeams.
