Anjero (Sourdough Pancakes From Somali)

For the fifth day of Breakfast across the countries in Buffet on table my recipe is from Somali cuisine. Somali cuisine is a combination of African, Persian, Turkish, Indian and Italian cuisines. Breakfast is an important meal for Somalis. Somalis often start the day with tea or coffee with milk, for Breakfast the main dish is typically  a pancake. They make this pancakes with different flours like wheat flour, rice flour, sorgam flour. There are few versions in this pancakes recipes some recipes are used with sourdough and some or with a sweet touch of sugar. Now today my recipe is sourdough pancake, this pancakes are usually served with a meat gravy or stir fried  meat or simply with a drizzle of honey. But we enjoyed them with out any side dish or honey with a cup of coffee. This recipe includes white cornflour that is one cup white cornflour,for that I used 3/4 cup corn meal with 1/4 cup of cornflour what we use for thickening  the soups.So that we get the corn flavor in the pancakes...
