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.

Multigrain Bread And Peanut Butter

Multigrain bread and homemade peanut butter.
I love the aroma of freshly baked bread. A bread made with Whole wheat or atta, soyabean, sorghum or jowar, pearl millet or bajra flour and flax seed powder.
If you can make your bread at home with healthy ingredients then why to use store bought bread with harmful chemicals.

Your daily bread could contain cancer-causing chemicals, including Potassium Bromate and Potassium Iodate, substances that are banned in many countries, but not in India due to slack food regulations, warns a new report released by the Centre for Science and Environment.
In 1999, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified Potassium Bromate as possibly carcinogenic (cancer causing) to humans.

Whole wheat bread

Cheesy bread

Oats, flaxseed whole wheat bread

Focaccia with whole wheat and soya bean flour

Bread making is not so difficult. Just don’t be impatient. Have some patience to knead the dough well till soft and elastic and give time to rise the dough. And feel the excitement and joy of making your own bread from scratch.

I have used soyabean flour, sorghum or jowar flour and pearl millet or bajra flour. You can use any flour of your choice, like ragi or finger millet, corn, oats powder etc.

Recipe

Whole Wheat flour or atta – 1 cup

Soyabean flour – 1 cup

Sorghum or jowar flour – 1 cup

Pearl millet or bajra flour – 1/4 cup

Flax seed powder – 3 tablespoon

Milk powder – 3 tablespoon

Dry yeast – 1 & 1/2 teaspoon

Salt – 1 & 1/2 teaspoon

Sugar – 1 tablespoon

Oil – 2 tablespoon

Vinegar – 1 & 1/2 tablespoon

Warm water – 1 & 1/4 cup

Sesame seed to sprinkle

Method

Mix sugar and yeast in 1/4 cup warm water. Water should be warm not hot. Stir well and cover. Keep in a warm place for 15 minutes.

In a large bowl mix all the flour, flax seed powder, milk powder, salt, oil and vinegar. Mix and add the yeast mixture.

Add warm water and knead a soft dough. You have to knead it really well. Knead for at least 7-8 minutes. It will be a sticky smooth dough. If you feel your dough is too sticky you can add little more flour. Place it in a greased bowl. Smear with oil. Cover loosely with a kitchen napkin. Keep it in a warm place for 2 hours. I have kept it in the oven.

After 2 hours take out the dough. It will be double. Punch down the dough.

Spread some flour on a flat surface. Knead the dough again. You can add little more flour if require. Knead well and smear with oil. Now it will be not sticky but a stretchable soft dough.

Make it flat with the help of your oil greased palm. Roll it from one side to make a loaf. Press the sides and place in a greased loaf pan. Press the sides gently.

Brush little water over it. Or level with your wet fingers.
Sprinkle little sesame seeds all over it.
Again place in a warm place for 1 hours more or until doubled.

Preheat the oven at 180° for 10 minutes.
When preheated place the loaf pan in middle rack and bake for 30 minutes or until the colour becomes golden brown.

Your homemade healthy multigrain healthy bread is ready. Don’t try to slice it when hot. It may be crumbled.
Let it cool down completely. Slice them and toast. These breads are taste best when toasted. Spread butter or jam. I like these bread with thick layer of homemade peanut butter.
Or make sandwiches with the stuffings of your choice.

For peanut butter

Dry roast 1 cup peanut. Let it cool down. Remove and discard the skin. Grind it with 1/4 teaspoon salt. I have used sea salt. Use your dry grinder to grind. When it becomes coarse powder. Stir with a spoon. Grind again for few seconds. Stir and repeat the process till the peanuts release oil and become a paste like consistency.
Delicious peanut butter is ready. Store it in a airtight jar and keep in refrigerator for later use.

Notes

1. You can use any flour of your choice, like ragi or finger millet, oats powder, corn etc.

2. You can use warm milk instead of water.

Gluten Free Multigrain Cheese Stuffed Savoury Pancake 

Gluten free multigrain pancake with cheese.

A very nutritious, gluten free and yummy breakfast. Great for kids tiffin to. These pancakes are made of oats, ragi or finger millet, joear or sorghum millet, soya and bajra or pearl millet.

Multigrain foods will be high in complex carbohydrates and protein. Complex carbs are great for energy production, and this can help with exercise and losing weight. They break down slower so they can provide energy over a longer period of time. The levels of protein will aid the body in tissue repair and production of antibodies that will help fight sickness or infection.
In addition, they will contain nutrients, fiber and essential minerals like magnesium, copper and iron. Multigrains that contain whole grains will be filled with essential fatty acids, B-vitamins, starch and fiber. Magnesium will help build strong bones and teeth. It will also help with metabolism. Fiber is great in helping the body stay regular and maintaining a healthy colon.
