Egg Free Chocolate Crepes with Oranges

When +Preeti Garg  suggested Chocolate Crepes and Strawberries for this month's Fusion Dessert on Sweet Fantasy Club , i was so thrilled .  I started to research about it right away . But i was browsing i saw so many chocolate crepes with Strawberries . We all know chocolate and strawberries go really well . But i love the combo of Chocolate and Oranges too . 


That too when the this is the season of Tangerines , how can i miss making the crepes without these  sweet tangerines. Oh my gosh .. these tangerines are are so sweet and juicy .. This is the second bag for the week .. I am loving this season eating loads of tangerines ..

 The beginning of the year , i had mentioned that i am going to eat healthy . Yup i am continuing the promise . These Chocolate Crepes are made of  Finger millet flour  and i used  a Tablespoon of All purpose flour for binding .  For the sweetness i had used Honey instead of Melted Chocolate .

Ingredients :   Makes 3 Crepes . Multiply to make more

Ragi / Finger Millet - 1/3 Cup
All purpose flour - 1 TBLS
Cocoa Powder - 2 TSP
Sugar - 1 TBLS
Water / Milk - For pouring consistency
Butter - 1 TBLS - chop it
Vegetable oil - To wipe the skillet


- Mix all the Ingredients  except , Butter and water .
-Add water little by little and mix till it forms a smooth batter.
-Heat the non-stick skillet over medium heat .
-Wipe the skillet using vegetable oil .
-Pour 1/3rd of the batter in the skillet and quickly tilt the pan or do like we usually make dosa's .
-Throw in some chopped butter on to the crepes.
-Cook till it is done , flip it over to the other side and cook for a minute. 
-Continue doing the same for rest of the batter.
- Once all the crepes are done , Roll it , sprinkle some icing sugar on top f the crepes , drizzle some honey / Melted Chocolate and serve

 Notes - 

Adding more / less sugar is upto you . 1 TBLS was sufficient for me .
Wiping  the skillet using vegetable oil is essential , as the batter could stick to the bottom of the pan if you miss doing this step.
You could serve the crepes with fresh cream , fruits of your choice .
