Chive and ricotta pancakes

Look fancy but very easy to do!
First send the boy out to the garden to pick the chives and then wash and chop them.
In the mean time mix together one cup of plain flour, 1 cup of milk and 1 egg, beat into a batter then mix in the chives. This will make 6 pancakes.
 When I planned to make these I forgot I didn't have a frying pan but then I had a sudden genius moment and decided to use my Japanese omlette pan. Cook on low until golden then turn and cook on the other side for a minute or two.
 For the filling mix together ricotta (homemade is delicious), chopped tomatoes, some salt and paper and a drizzle of olive oil. Spread some of the mixture at one end of the pancake then roll.
 To finish place the roll on a chive and add a slice of red pepper, 
then use the chive to tie it all together - looks pretty, right?
 Ebi-kun had his served with sugar snap peas and lettuce and ham salad. 
We had green salad and sauteed potatoes.

  2. hmm maybe I should do a tutorial. You must use pasturised milk, add citric acid and cheese salt and heat to 180F, the cheese should separate from the whey, drain with cheese cloth. That's about it.
