Eggless Ragi (Finger Millet) Pancakes

Ragi (finger millet) is one of the most nutritious and healthy cereal. Ragi has a high protein content, its rich in calcium ,phosphorus, potassium and iron.

Beacuse its a complex carbohydrate , it helps in controlling diabetes.

My husband loves sweet roti (flat bread) made with ragi, jaggery and coconut. I always wanted to try Ragi Pancakes for him .

This recipe is inspired from an eggless pancake recipe shared on one of the food groups that I follow. The original recipe has All Purpose Flour and sugar. I have replaced all purpose flour with Ragi flour and sugar with Khajoor gur( date palm jaggery) . You can also use regular jaggery.

Serve it with a jam of your choice and some fruits on the side. I served it with the fruit of the season - Mango.

I served it with homemade strawberry jam and homemade

black grapes jam.

Ingredients Gives 4

Ragi flour 1/2 cup

Coconut milk 1/2 cup

Jaggery 2 tsp

Cinnamon pd 1/2 tsp

Baking pd 1 tsp

Vegetable Oil 2 tsp

Melted Butter 2 tbsp


Warm the coconut milk slightly.

Stir in grated jaggery. Mix till it dissolves.

Now mix in the oil.

Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.

Pour in the wet ingredients into the dry ones.

Using a whisk mix lightly. Don't overmix it.

Its ok if the batter is slightly lumpy.

Let it rest for 2-3 minutes.

Heat a non stick pan.

Using a silicon brush smear melted butter on the pan.

Now pour 1/4 cup of batter.

Gently flip it once you see bubbles on the surface.

Cook the other side for 30-45 seconds and remove it on a plate.

Similarly make remaining pancakes.

Serve them immediately with a jam of your choice .

If the jam is too thick add little warm water to make it runny.
