Mango pancakes with chilli-lime caramel sauce

There's no such thing as too many mangoes! I tried these pancakes couple of weeks back and have been dying to share the recipe with you guys since then. I combined mangoes with my another favourite, caramel sauce to make these pancakes and they turned out to be insanely delicious.

Soft and fluffy pancakes, sticky caramel sauce and freshly chopped mangoes!  It's the breakfast of your dreams and perfect for weekends. If you are into pancakes for weekend breakfast then you should also try my Whole wheat chocolate pancakes and Apple pie pancakes.

Remember the 10 minute salted caramel sauce recipe which I shared in my last post? I jazzed it up more by adding lemon juice and chilli powder and I can't begin to tell you how amazing it tastes! It's sweet, sticky, buttery, tangy and spicy and slightly salty. So addictive.

Would you look at these pancakes? Bursting with the flavour of mangoes,  it's all I want everyday for breakfast!

These pancakes are wholesome, healthy and made with whole wheat flour, rolled oats, yogurt and mango puree. I mean you can add less of caramel sauce over them but weekends really are for indulgence and these pancakes are just too moreish to resist. Rolled oats give body to the batter and lend a nice bite to pancakes. Mango puree imparts the mango flavour to the batter and makes it naturally sweet.

In this recipe, I have used fruit salt instead of baking powder which makes the pancakes aerated and very fluffy. If you can't find fruit salt, then go ahead and add baking powder.

Soft and fluffy Mango pancakes made with wholesome ingredients and drizzled with spicy and tangy chilli-lime caramel sauce- perfect for breakfast!

Diet: Vegetarian
Serving: Makes 6 pancakes
Type: Breakfast/Snack


1/2 cup Whole wheat flour
1/4th cup rolled oats
1-2 Tbsp Honey/maple syrup
1/4th cup Yogurt (room temp)
1+1/2 tsp fruit salt (I used ENO)
1/2 cup Puréed mango (Any Mango will do)
2-3 Tbsp water

Chilli-lime caramel

1 cup Salted caramel sauce (Recipe here)
1+1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp chilli powder

Additional ingredients

Chopped mangoes
Fresh mint


Begin my preparing salted caramel sauce (Recipe here). Once caramel is cool and transferred in a bottle, add lemon juice and chilli powder and mix with the spoon.

To make the batter, take a bowl and combine whole wheat flour, rolled oats, yogurt, honey and mango puree together.

Let the batter sit for 5 minutes and heat non-sitck pan. (You might find the batter to be slightly thick but once you add fruit salt, it will loosen further)

Now add fruit salt and mix it properly in the batter. Once pan is hot, add slight bit of butter and add 2 Tbsp full of batter for each pancake.

Once upper surface of pancake becomes dry enough, add butter and gently flip the pancake to cook from other side or till golden and cooked. Repeat the same for other pancakes.

Serve the pancakes with chilli-lime caramel sauce and chopped mangoes.

10 minute Salted caramel sauce

You guys I tried my favourite Salted caramel sauce at home and I am in love! I cannot stop eating it! So far I have had it with raw apples, on toasted bread and with Mango pancakes, recipe of which I will share in my next post.

There's nothing better than this sauce. It's sweet, buttery, sticky, slightly salty and so so delicious! Tastes good with just about everything!

Here are some of the things with which you can eat this sauce

1.  Ice creams especially vanilla ice cream
2.  Pancakes
3.  Waffles
4.  Cheesecakes
5.  Grilled fruits like Pineapple, Peaches
6.  Pies
7. Crepes
and Much more!

This salted caramel sauce is made with just 4 ingredients in 10 minutes. All you have to do while making this sauce is keep an eye on sugar which caramelises so it doesn't burn and be careful of the splatter when you add butter and cream in hot caramel. Its as simple as this!

Once you make this sauce at home, you would not want to buy this sauce or even butterscotch sauce from market. Both the sauces are same, only difference being butterscotch sauce is made with brown sugar and not white sugar. You would want to serve this sauce with everything and even eat it by the spoonful. It's liquid gold for desserts!

Sweet, sticky and slightly salty Caramel sauce which is perfect for spooning over any kind of dessert.

Diet: Vegetarian
Type: Sauce/Condiment
Serving: Makes about 1 cup


1/2 cup sugar
1/4th cup cream (I used Amul)
2 Tbsp butter (I used Amul)
pinch of salt


1. Heat sugar in a saucepan over medium heat and move around saucepan couple of times by holding the handle so that all of the sugar melts. (Do not use any spatula or whisk to mix sugar, let sugar melt on its own and make sure to not touch the caramel with your hands at all)

2.Once sugar melts and achieve a dark yellow colour, adjust gas mark to low heat and add butter and     stir with the help of a whisk. (Mixture will splatter when you add butter so be careful)

3. Once butter is incorporated, slowly add cream on low heat. Once you add cream, mixture will       splatter rapidly so carefully mix all the cream with a whisk.

4. Once cream is mixed through, take off heat and add salt and mix again.

5. Slightly cool caramel and then transfer in an air-tight glass container and refrigerate up-to 2 weeks.

6. It will slightly thicken on cooling so re-heat in microwave for 15 seconds before using.
