For the Jaggery Candied walnuts

Jaggery candied walnuts

  • In a pan add jaggery and cook over low flame. Stirring frequently.
  • When the jaggery is melted and looks glossy then add the walnuts and mix everything well. take it off the heat and set it aside.

Pumpkin pancakes

  • In a large mixing bowl whisk together pumpkin puree, yogurt, milk, eggs and vanilla essence.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together all the dry ingredients. Now pour the wet mixture in the dry ingredients and mix until combined. If you think the batter is very thick(i.e. non pourable) add 1-2 tbsp of milk and lightly mix. Do not over mix the batter.
  • Let it stand for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile heat a skillet or pan over medium-low heat. Brush the skillet with some butter.
  • Now scoop some batter and pour it on the hot griddle and spread it out as it is quite thick. Let it cook for 1-2 minutes until you can see bubbles in the surface and the underside is golden brown. Then flip it around and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Serve with some jaggery caramelised walnuts or maple syrup or honey.


I usually make Pumpkin puree at home. I boil the pumpkins for 20-25 mins. drain the water and make a smooth puree. You can use store bought pumpkin puree as well or oven bake it at home and then make a puree.
