Lets Make It!
In a mixing bowl combine parsnips, cumin, chilies, coriander, turmeric, baking powder, flour, corn flour, onion and ginger, salt, pepper and 1/3 cup of cold water ( dribble it in slowly you might not need all of it). Mix until a thick batter is formed. Add about I tablespoon of olive oil to the skillet and heat on medium high heat. When the oil is hot, place a few large tablespoons of the mixture into the skillet to form a round pancake about 1/2 inch thick. You can cook 2 or 3 at a time and keep them warm in a low oven while you make the rest. Cook for 2-3 minutes until golden brown, then flip over and cook the other side until browned. Should make about 8 pancakes. Serve the pancakes with the honey, honey mustard, ranch dressing ,or salsa.
