Banana & sesame crepes with flavoured honey

Cooking Time Required: 15-20 mins
Cost of Preparation: 40-45 Rupees

Ingredients: Whole wheat flour ( 1/2 cup ), egg ( 1 no. ), milk ( 3/4 th cup ), cooking butter ( 3 tsp ), sugar ( 2 tsp ), salt ( a pinch ), baking powder ( 1/5 tsp ), sesame seeds ( 3 tsp ), ripe banana ( 1-2 nos ), honey ( 4-5 tbs ), star anise ( 2 nos ).

Cooking: Lighty roast the sesame seeds and keep aside.

Heat the honey in a thick bottomed saucepan along with the star anise . One can also add
a pinch of powdered star anise to the honey. Boil it for 5 mins . Keep aside to cool for 10-15 mins.

Break the egg in a bowl. Beat well. Add the milk, sugar and salt. Beat for 2 mins.
Sift the flour with the baking powder. Add to the beaten egg and milk. Melt 2 tsp of butter and add to it. Beat for 4-5 mins.

Heat a small frying pan to a low temperature. Add a few drops of oil/butter. Rub with a cloth to spread uniformly without leaving excess greasiness. Take 2 tbs of the batter and tilt the pan to spread uniformly.

Cut the banana into thin slices. Spread over the crepe. Sprinkle sesame seeds.

Fold the crepe into half . As the crepes are very thin, there is no need to cook on the inner side. Remove from pan and put on a serving plate.

Drizzle with the flavoured honey. And enjoy a delectable French breakfast.
