<p>Pavithra Arunkumar, these are interesting receipts. Your instructions and photos are easy to follow but I have one question to ask. Once the batter is made and stored for each receipt, when its time to cook/bake and eat what is the best way to do this or do you eat it straight out of the refrigerator? Is each receipt cooked the same when you go to use it? Good luck in the Meal Prep Contest.</p>
<p>Thank you very much Sir! All the recipes that I have posted needs to be cooked on stove top. </p><p><strong>Flat Bread :</strong> Heat the griddle or tava on medium flame. Place the paratha/flat bread on the hot griddle and cook on both sides. Add butter or oil to ensure crisp texture.The paratha/Flat bread is done when it turns light brown and few darker spots appear. (each flat bread cooks approximately 1-2 minutes)</p><p><a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Guacamole-Whole-Wheat-Flat-Bread-Guacamole-Paratha/">https://www.instructables.com/id/Guacamole-Whole-Wh...</a></p><p><strong>Pancakes :</strong> Heat the griddle or tava on medium flame. Pour a little pancake batter using ladle on the pan and add few drops of oil on the sides of pancake. Once the bottom is cooked flip it and cook the other side. (each pancake cooks approximately 1-2 minutes)</p><p>Thank you !</p>
