Gluten Free Multi Grain Pancake

Gluten free eggless multi grain pancake.
Pancake made with sorghum, finger millet, pearl millet, rice flour and flax seed powder. Stuffed with pizza sauce and cheese. But cheese is optional, you can also serve it without cheese and it will be delicious without stuffing too.

Recipe is very simple and easy yet delicious. Pack it for tiffin or serve in breakfast, it will be a nutritious and wholesome meal.
You can use any gluten free flour of your choice like soy flour or oats powder. If you don’t like ragi or finger millet, you can use soya bean flour instead.

I have chopped the vegetables finely and ground them to make it quickly. You can grate them too. If you want to grind don’t make paste. Just grind for few seconds.

Boil and mash the green peas. I microwave them for 4 minutes and mashed.

Heat 2 tablespoon oil in a nonstick pan. Add cumin seeds and let it splutter. Add finely chopped green chilli and ginger paste. Stir and add spinach, cauliflower, peas, beetroot and carrot.

Stir well. Add salt too and all the spices. Saute till dried up completely. Add mashed potatoes and chopped coriander leaves.

Or make a batter of 1-2 eggs with salt and pepper. If you don’t want to use egg make the batter with 1/2 cup all purpose flour and 2 tablespoon cornflour with salt and spices of your choice. Make a smooth thick batter without any lumps.

Dip the cutlets in egg or flour batter gently . Coat the batter all over the cutlets. Roll on bread crumb or semolina/suji and deep fry in oil.

Serve hot cutlets with any sauce or chutney.

Peanut stuffed paratha. I love the flavour of south Indian dishes.
So added south Indian flavour in my north Indian paratha. Wow its really yummy .

Peanuts are legumes but carry almost all the qualities of other popular kernels such as pistachio, almonds etc.
Peanuts are good source of vitamin E, niacin, folate, protein and manganese.

You can enjoy the stuffing as a dip or chutney adding some tomatoes. Saute 2 chopped tomatoes in  1 teaspoon oil. Let it cool and grind. Mix in the stuffing with lemon juice to make chutney or dip.
I will share my complete chutney recipe later.

I didn’t but you can add garlic in the stuffing if you like.
I have dried curry leaves so I crushed them. You can use fresh if you have.

You can use the stuffing in sandwiches or kachouri too.

You can fry the paratha with clarified butter or ghee if you like.

fb_img_1449572961897.jpg

Recipe

Peanut  – 1/2 cup

Lemon  – 1 small

Mustard seeds/rai – 1 teaspoon

Curry leaves  – few

Green chilli  – 1-2 chopped

Ginger  – 1/2 inch piece grated or chopped

Coriander leaves  – 1 teaspoon finely chopped

Cumin powder  – 1 teaspoon

Oil  – 2 teaspoon +  for shallow fry the paratha

Salt to taste

Method

Dry roast the peanuts. Let it cool, remove the skin and grind. Keep it aside.

Heat oil in a pan. Add the mustard seeds. Let it splutter. Add curry leaves and switch off the flame.

When cooled grind with green chilli, ginger, salt and cumin powder. Mix ground peanuts and grind again with juice of 1 lemon.

Taste and adjust the seasoning. Add finely chopped coriander leaves and mix well.
Your stuffing is ready. Keep it aside.

Make a fulka or roti/ Indian flat bread like smooth dough with whole wheat flour and water.

Smear with 1 teaspoon oil, cover and keep aside for 10-15 minutes.

I made it with normal roti dough but you can make it with 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 all purpose flour too with salt and 1 tablespoon oil if you like.

Only whole wheat flour dough is healthy option so I like it more.
Now again knead the dough and divide in equal portion.

Flatten it using your palm. Put a little stuffing in the center and seal it by gathering the edges into the center. Seal tightly.

Roll with a rolling pin with the help of dry flour.
Heat a griddle or tava. Place the paratha on it.

When the bubbles starts to rise on the surface flip it.
Cook the paratha using little oil or clarified butter/ghee, press with a spatula.

Shallow fry the paratha until golden brown spots appear on both sides.

Repeat with the remaining dough and stuffing to make more paratha.

Your crispy yummy peanut paratha/pan fried flat bread is ready. Enjoy with tea or coffee.
