After reading my post “HEALTHIEST CEREAL – FINGER MILLET (RAGI)” you must have seen how finger millet is a highly nutritious cereal. Here’s the truth – when I combined it with oats, it turned out to be a super delicious meal too, so I am sharing the recipe for oats finger millet pancakes…
Makes 4 pancakes
4 tbsp millet flour
4 tbsp oats (ground into powder)
1 egg white
A pinch of salt
½ tsp sugar
1 tsp Milk
Water to make a batter.
In a bowl mix together millet flour, ground oats, salt and sugar.
Beat egg white for a minute and add to the powders.
Add enough milk to make a pancake batter. The batter should be of pouring consistency, neither too thick nor too runny.
On a non stick pan spread some butter.
Add a ladle of batter to make pancake-size circle.
Fry for a minute.
Flip and fry for another 1 minute.
Serve hot with honey, chutney or pickle.
Note 1: You can add finely chopped steamed vegetables of your choice, mushrooms, leftover chicken, etc as a variation. In which case there is no need to add sugar.
Note 2: Finger millet, also called red millet, ragi or nachni, is the most nutritious cereal. It prevents distressing health issues like acne, hypertension, diabetes, arthritis, and many more. Being a gluten free cereal and combined with the goodness of oats, these pancakes are jam packed with nutritive value. Also, you won’t get hunger pangs too soon when you have millet because it has a low glycemic response.
