Here is a recipe of healthy multigrain savoury waffles with quinoa. You can make them with a lot of variations by adding different things like veggies, boiled chicken, ham, sausages, or boiled macaroni in the batter. Kids will love them.
Today I have added quinoa which is a super food. Multigrain flour is available in the stores these days. You can even mix various flours like whole wheat, soya, ragi, jowar, bajra, gram flour, semolina etc etc.. .. whatever is available in your kitchen in equal proportion.
Multigrain flour - 1 cup
Boiled quinoa .... 1/2 cup
Yogurt .............. 2 tbsps (optional)
Onions ............ 2 tbsps (finely chopped)
Green chillies .. 1-2 (finely chopped)
Coriander leaves .. 2 tbsps (finely chopped)
Salt ................. to taste
Turmeric powder .. 2 pinches
Roasted and crushed cumin seeds .. 1/2 tsp
Oil ............. to brush on the waffle maker.
Soak 1/4 cup quinoa for 1 hour. Drain the water and boil it with half cup water adding little salt. It cooks perfectly and no need of draining the water as the nutrients will be lost. Let it cool.
Now mix together all the ingredients mentioned in the list.except oil and make a thick batter adding little water as needed.
Brush the waffle maker with oil on both sides.
Spoon the batter into it and spread it.
Close it and switch it on. It should be done in 4-5 minutes. (the light indicates when done)
Note : This portion makes 2 big or 4 small waffles depending on the size of your waffle maker.
