How to make Broken Wheat Vegetable Pancake | Nutrition Pancakes | Dalia Pancake Recipe without Fruit Salt and Baking Soda with detailed steps and snaps.

Broken Wheat/Cracked Wheat/Dalia/Gothuma Rava Vegetable Pancake is a healthy version of a savoury pancake in which the vegetables are overloaded. These healthy and spongy pancakes with 'no baking soda' and 'no fruit salt' is the wholesome breakfast that fills the tummy adding great nutrition to the body.

Broken wheat is fully stacked with fibre and is rich in vitamins and minerals. I never miss stocking up my pantry with Broken wheat as it is part of our regular diet. Be it a sweet dish or savoury dish, the broken wheat always stands unique with a chewy & nutty taste, and this recipe is no new to get joined in the club. If you look for an extraordinary tasting sweet recipe, try visiting my Broken Wheat Fruit Payasam recipe.

The nutritive value of Broken Wheat is enormous and so is the taste of the pancake. Adding loads of vegetables makes this Broken Wheat pancake even more succulent and healthy. Any finely chopped vegetables like carrots, beets, peas, cabbage, capsicum, corn, beans, broccoli or even greens could be loaded into the pancake batter to make it highly nutritive.

The very easy to make, Nutri pancake recipe prepared with no badness included is revealed here. The right taste of the Nutri Pancakes lies in the perfection of how it is made. The outer layer has to be crispy enough, the inside has to be tender enough, and to achieve that, one who makes this has to be patient enough to roast the pancakes to perfection. Yes! you need at least 5 minutes to make a single pancake. But, trust me, your tummy will say stop after one, and your palate would ask for one more or sometimes two more also.

Some Tricks to Roast to Perfection:

  • Though veggies can be added directly to the batter, sauteing them for a while enhances the taste. But keep in mind, the veggies have to retain their crunchiness to experience perfection in the Broken wheat Pancakes.
  • More veggies and greens into the batter, the more nutrition we get. Finely chop the veggies, and feel free to make the pancakes colourful by overloading the veggies into the batter.
  • Each pancake needs a teaspoon of oil or ghee to get the right crispiness on the outside. 
  • It's worth a shot to wait until the pancake is roasted to perfection. It takes 3 minutes over a low flame to show off the crispy outer layer, and the pancake has to be flipped and cooked again for 2 minutes.
  • The particles of Broken wheat takes a pretty good time to get soaked. The reason for blending the broken wheat and Poha is solely to reduce the resting time. 
  • If the broken wheat and Poha is blended very nicely, the texture would be missing in the pancakes, and the centre part may turn very sticky. The coarse particles in the batter pave the way for the best-textured pancakes. Yup! Blend coarsely.

Which Pan to use?

  • If you have a small pan with a diameter of 7-inch or 8-inch, way to go. The shape of the pancakes would be a flawless circle and the thickness would go even throughout the pancakes.
  • I always use my Appam pan which works fine. In this case, the thickness would be more at the centre and the corners would be supposed to turn more crispy. The crispy edges add more taste to the pancakes though the shape has not turned out very perfect.
  • You can use your usual Dosa Tawa that also works just fine.

Should I have to blend the Broken Wheat?

  • Not necessarily!
  • But, blending them into a coarse mixture helps in reducing the resting time of the batter.
  • In case, if the broken wheat is added without blending, simply double the resting time.

Can batter be prepared ahead?

  • Yes! The batter can be prepared a day before.
  • The remaining batter can be stored in the fridge and can be used within a day or two. But I suggest preparing the batter freshly to get  nicely roasted crispy pancakes with the right texture.

Which Poha to use?

  • Both the thick and thin rice flakes would fit perfectly for the recipe. So, go ahead with what you have in your pantry. 

Furthermore, these tasty Broken Wheat Veggie Roasties could be enjoyed without any side dips. Having said that, they can be paired with any chutney or even tomato ketchup.

The crispy outside, the soft inside, the crunchy vegetables on each bite, especially the divinely taste of sweet corn kernels alongside the unique taste of Broken wheat would be unbeatable and irresistible.
