Savoury Bajra Pancakes

Savoury bajra pancakes are a great breakfast option. Bajra, or pearl millets, is rich in minerals like magnesium and potassium. The baking soda will make your pancakes fluffy, so don’t skip it.


  • ¼ cup bajra flour
  • 2 tablespoons sattu
  • 2 tablespoons suji (rawa)
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon grated garlic
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chaat masala
  • 1 tablespoon cumin powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped coriander
  • 1 green chilli, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon oil


  • To a bowl, add the bajra flour, sattu, suji, ginger, garlic and all the dry masalas and mix well.
  • Now add the water to make a pancake-consistency batter. Add the chopped coriander leaves, green chilli, onion and tomato and mix well.
  • Heat a pan and smear it with some oil.
  • Now add the baking soda to the mixture and mix it well. It will bubble up.
  • Pour some batter on the pan and cover it. Cook it till it swells up and the underside is crisp and golden in colour.
  • Flip it and cook the second side too.
  • Serve with some chutney or cheese dip.
