These semolina pancakes are amazingly tasty, healthy and loved by all! I just made them as an experiment and served it to my friends and then loved them! They are so easy to make and can be made with a variety of ingredients…. Eggless ofcourse 🙂
They even taste yummy cold…serve them with chutney, sauce, a curry, or some marmalade…
8 tablespoons of wheat semolina/sooji/cream of wheat
4 heaped tablespoons of oat flour, just grind the oats in the blender ( i used my amazing bullet)
100 grams of white yogurt/curd/dahi
100 ml appox of water
1/2 teaspoon of salt or to taste
1 teaspoon of cumin seeds
a little chopped green chillies
a little chopped coriander leaves
1 tablespoon of cooking oil plus more for cooking
1 teaspoon of fruit salt/eno
Mix the semolina, oat flour, yogurt, salt, cumin seeds, green chillies, coriander leaves and cooking oil with the water well and see that its all well mixed. Leave it for an hour (this step is optional but i feel it just improves the texture of the pancakes ). Before you want to make them heat a non stick frying pan well and add a few drops of oil in it. Add the fruit salt to the semolina mixture and mix well. Take a large serving spoon of the mixture and put into the hot pan. Spread it a bit with the back of the spoon to shape a circle. Cover and cook on one side and then carefully flip over and cook on the other side till both sides are brown. You can drizzle some oil or ghee on it to make it crispy!
You can add some grated vegetables to this such as onion,. carrots, capsicum, cabbage, cauliflower, ginger etc
You can make it into a thinner crepe/dosa type by not making it so thick
You can add rice flour to it instead of oats if you dont have oats
If the mixture does not seem to cook or it breaks dont panic..add some more oat flour, white flour or rice flour. Be patient…it will turn out… if i can make it so can you 🙂
Oatmeal and oat bran are significant sources of dietary fiber. This fiber contains a mixture of about half soluble and half insoluble fibers. One component of the soluble fibre found in oats is beta-glucans, a soluble fiber which has proven effective in lowering blood cholesterol.

  1. sounds delicious. I’ll have to try them. I wonder if you would enjoy them with avocado slices.

  2. Hi Nitu, this was a very inspiring dish for breakfast. I tried my own combination of 1 part each of semolina, instant oats and 2 parts gramflour. I added ginger paste, salt, red chili powder and carom seeds. I mixed this using yogurt and a little water and cooked in a non-stick pan! Yummy!

  3. hola Nitu, se me hace la boca agua con todo lo que publicas, qué rico todo, estas tortitas tengo también que probarlas
