Put everything till lemon juice in a blender and blend until smooth. Add in the onion to the batter. Add other finely chopped veggies or bell peppers to the batter if you like.
Heat a thick bottom girdle at medium heat. When hot, grease with a little oil. Add a 1/2 cup of the batter to the pan. Spread by tilting the pan to all sides.
Cook 5-7 minutes or until golden, then flip and cook for another 5-6 minutes.
Serve hot as is, or with ketchup, Sriracha, ranch dressing or other dressing of choice and with roasted veggies or potatoes. I filled mine with potato and bell pepper with indian spices.
Variations: Add other greens. Or remove the greens from the batter and saute and use as filling. You can also use cooked millet or other grains in the batter.
