Finger Millet and Sweet Corn Pancakes

Have Your Own Crunchy Pancakes for the Breakfast

This is my own recipe. My cooking experience prompted me to make this invention. I mixed a few healthy ingredients to make this batter. These pancakes came out fabulous and mouthwatering. It's my pleasure to share this recipe for you now.

Let's Look Into the Health Benefits of these Ingredients:

Here, I have used finger millet flour as the base for the pancakes. Of all the cereals and millets, finger millet has the highest amount of calcium. It has protein, dietary fiber, and minerals, while having very little fat.

The other ingredients I used here are wheat semolina, rice flour, sweet corn kernels, yogurt, chopped onions, tomatoes, ginger, coriander leaves, chopped green chilies, and salt. If you go deep into the properties of these ingredients, each of them are very healthy for you.

  1. Take all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, except oil for making the pancakes.
  2. Mix them well while adding water little by little, to get a lump-free, thick batter. Keep aside for 10-15 minutes.
  3. If you don't want to use cooking soda, rest the batter for three hours. This will give you soft and porous pancakes.
  4. Heat a pan to make the pancakes in. Grease it with ghee or oil. Pour about one and a half ladles full of batter in the center.
  5. Spread it evenly a little, so as to make a medium-thick pancake. Add a few drops of oil or ghee on the top and the edges. Cover the pan for a minute.

  7. Add a few drops of oil or ghee on the top. Now, no need to cover the pan. Cook the other side also till golden brown.
  8. Remove it with a spatula and place on a plate. Repeat the same for making all the pancakes.

    Thanks for reading my hub. Finger millet looks like mustard seeds. We call it as ragi in Kannada. Wheat semolina is also called as sooji. It is the fine particles of wheat. It is also known as cream of wheat.
