ODE Restaurant and Cafe ODE Spiced Savoury Pancake

This recipe was created by Tim Bouget from the ODE Restaurant and the Café ODE in Shaldon. 

This recipe can be made in minutes and uses leftover items you might have in your fridge. Add some curry spice and this creates an exotic savoury snack that can be enjoyed on the go.  Inspired by the Asian Martabak or Caribbean roti, perfect street food!


Ingredients (serves 4)

250g flour bread flour

75ml water

1 egg

2 tbsp Rapeseed oil


Add all ingredients and mix well using your hands to form a soft bread like dough. Allow dough to rest for 20 minutes.

This pancake can be filled with any items. We suggest you cook off 1 shredded onion in some butter or oil, add a tbsp of curry powder, then simply add in your leftovers and mix together and bind the filling. Think spicy bubble and squeak!

It’s great with leftover mash or chopped roasted potatoes, vegetables and any cooked meats such as chicken or beef, just add spice! There’s always meat left on that roast chicken, alternatively leftover cooked beef mince is a perfect option.

For the pancake, clear a space on a work top, lightly oil the surface, pull a table spoon ball of dough and mould it into a round ball, squash using the palm of your hand, gently using your finger tips in a circular motion begin to spread the dough to make a round, working inside out. The dough should be the size of a medium frying pan and almost see through.

Heat a non stick pan on the stove, when the pan is hot, lift the pancake off the work surface and place into the pan. Turn the heat down. After a minute the pancake will begin to colour.  Add a large spoon full of your left over creation into the middle of the dough. Use a palette knife to fold over the sides of the pancake to the centre creating a square parcel. Flip the pancake over and cook for a further 2 minutes. The filling at this stage will be heated through and ready to eat.

The dough will seal itself creating a square pasty like parcel. Remove from the pan, cut in half and serve.
