    CJAY's Note:

    The pancakes are a meal in themselves, and require no other accompaniment than a green salad. I found this on the internet. Posted for ZWT7-Africa. Note: Soak time is not included. Cook time is approximate to cook all the panckes in batches.

      These pancakes were very quick and easy to make. They had a nice flavor and interesting texture. I loved all the ingredients and was pleased to be able to taste them all. I did have trouble turning the pancakes, they kept falling apart on me. I am very pleased to have tried them. Made for ZWT7 Witchin Kitchen.

      I wanted to love these, I really did: the protein, the cheap ingredients, the ease of preparation. Maybe I over processed the beans, because I got bored trying to push them through the sieve and ended up putting them in the food processor, but our pancakes had a very mealy texture that we couldn't get over and made them not so appetizing. : (

      We loved these! They were so unusual and full of flavour! I boiled the prawns (shrimp) in some salted water until just cooked. For the beans, I used a 300g can of butter beans. I reduced the salt a little, and addeda little extra cayenne (we like hot and spicy!). I had a little trouble with the first couple of pancakes falling apart, but by the end, I had it sorted! I found they held together better if I used a sheet of baking paper to line my frying pan, and then after pouring the mixture in, i put the lid on the pan to help set the rest of the pancake before turning. They were better cooked slowly over a low heat. Great recipe! Made for ZWT7 - Africa.
