Once hot, pour a tablespoon of the batter into each and let cook on low heat for 5-6 minutes till light brown.
Turn and cook the other side also for another 5-6 minutes till light brown.

A special non stick mould is used for cooking this.If you do not have this mould you can make panakes with the same paste and spread it evenly on a non-stick frying pan. Add some oil from the sides and let it cook. After that turn and roast the other side too.
