Nigella Lawson's Ricotta Hotcakes Recipe - Ricotta Pancakes with Strawberry Sauce

I have been eyeing on this recipe for a very long time. This is nigella's recipe, i was looking for ricotta cheese to make this, but sadly i couldn't get it anywhere in my place. When we visited goa and we went to a super market there and i was very excited to see ricotta cheese there, immediately i grabbed it and was thinking to make this as well a lemon ricotta cake which i wanted to bake for a long time.
