4 Cups of shredded green cabbages finely sliced (I use a Mandoline slicer)
1 Large onion finely sliced
2 Large eggs (beaten in a separate bowl)
100 Gr. Bacon / Pancetta / Lardons or smoked ham cut in small dices
60 Gr. All purpose flour
1/2 Teaspoon Salt – 1/2 Teaspoon ground pepper – 1/2 Teaspoon Chili Flakes
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
In a frying pan, saute the bacon until brown and crispy on all sides. Set aside and discard the fat.
In a large bowl, mix the cabbage, onion, beaten eggs and flour and mix well. Stir in the bacon/lardons and mix thoroughly.
Using the same pan, pour the vegetable oil and heat until it starts to smoke. Add the cabbage mixture and flatten to make a large pancake, the size of the pan.
Cook at medium heat, for about 15 minutes. Cover the pan with a lid or aluminum foil.
After 15 minutes, flip the pancake over and cook for a further 10 minutes, until brown and very crispy.
Serve with a Chutney of your choice.
Even better reheated the following day !
