Sathumaavu / Multigrain Pancake

Sathumaavu / Multigrain Pancake is a healthy version of pancake which would give a 'win-win' result for both the mom and kids. Mom would be satisfied with preparing such a healthy pancake and kids, on the other hand, would enjoy their yummy fluffy pancakes. So, a perfect health+taste combo recipe is what we gonna see through this post.

Sathumaavu flour is a powerpack of nutrients which combines the goodness of grains, legumes, and nuts. The list starts with grains like samba wheat, finger millet, pearl millet, red rice and continues to the legumes like black gram, green gram and ends with nuts and flavoring agents like dry ginger/ cardamom. Wait to see Sathumaavu/ Health Mix recipe which I'll be posting soon.

Fluffy, Tasty & Healthy Pancakes Ever!


  1. Very different and simple healthy tasty pancake..

  2. It is really energetic and tasty food.

  3. The Sathumaavu flour you shared here is amazing and I never heard before. Nowadays people are aware of the good and bad ingredients like everyone prefers jaggery over white sugar and healthy fats instead of refined oils. So, the good thing is that the flour and obviously recipes made from it is a powerpack of nutrients that combines the goodness of grains, legumes, and nuts. Spices like dry ginger and cardamom also provide many health benefits. I prefer to eat as healthy as possible but sometimes I go for some elegant desserts like red velvet cake and Martabak. Martabak I always prefer from Smile Martabak Singapore. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful post here.
