3 Flour-Gluten Free Pancakes

It is very exciting to see more varieties of flours available in the Indian market. I prepared these pancakes with 3 flours that I picked up. Buckwheat is commonly known as "kuttu ka atta"; Amaranth flour is "rajgira" or "rajgara" flour; water chestnut flour is known as "singoda" flour. It was interesting to experiment with them, the textures being very different. This one is dedicated to all my readers looking for gluten free recipes.

3Flour Gluten Free Pancakes
3tbs buckwheat flour
3tbs amaranth flour
1 1/2 tbs water chestnut flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 egg
Jaggery to taste

  • Mix all the flours well with the baking powder.
  • Add well beaten egg and powdered jaggery.
  • Add enough water to get pancake batter consistency.
  • Heat the girdle and pour the batter. Cook on both sides using olive oil.
  • Serve with fresh fruits and honey.
  • Enjoy!

  2. Hi Shirley, sorry that haven't been blogging much lately. Hope you're all well. Tomorrow is Thaipusam day. Are the people in India celebrating it too? Btw, your pancake sounds wonderfully delish. thanks for sharing.
    Hope you're enjoying your day, dear.

  3. Hi Shirley, wow! I love this! Looking at it, I think 5 pieces will do me fine.
    I have always appreciated Indian food, as well rotis, chapatis, and fish curries.
    Next day you cook fish curry send me a telegram, ha ha.
    You have a nice day, and keep a song in your heart.
