A weekend treat for the kids, these light and healthy pancakes made of whole wheat flour and buttermilk will be loved by them and will be devoured in no time. Adding some beetroot powder / puree is purely optional and can be skipped. Serve these pancakes, drizzled with some rabdi / syrup or stuffed with your favourite fruits. Any leftover pancakes can be reheated for breakfast during the week.

In a bowl, combine all the ingredients(except the garnishings) and whisk into a smooth batter of pouring consistency. Keep it aside for 10 minutes.
