Oats & Ragi Pancakes

Oats is labelled as one of the most healthiest foods these days. Now a days, a lot of people include oats in their diet. Ragi (Finger millet) is a great source of protein, calcium & iron. The combination of Oats & Ragi is packed with high level of dietary fiber that aids in proper digestion & prevents constipation.  When the healthy desert completion was announced I was quite sure I had to produce some recipe keeping in mind the health benefits of these two ingredients. 
I would like to share my recipe @ the Healthy Dessert Competition which got a consolation prize. Competition was held by Art of Living, Oman chapter

  1. ½ cup oats
  2. ½ cup ragi flour
  3. 3 tbsp semolina
  4. 6 tbsp jaggery (or as needed)
  5. 1 tsp baking soda
  6. 1 tsp clarified butter + some more for greasing the pan
  7. pinch of salt
  8. skimmed milk as needed
  9. few drops of vanilla essence
  10. Honey & Fresh strawberries for serving


  1. Dry roast the oats for 2 minutes in a pan & make powder. Keep aside for further use.
  2. Dry roast the ragi powder & semolina separately for 2 minutes (don't over roast the semolina)
  3. Mix the ragi, oats, semolina. jaggery, salt, clarified butter, vanilla essence & skimmed milk and keep aside for 15 minutes. Taste the batter if you need some more jaggery add as required.
  4. The consistency should be free flowing (similar to dosa batter)
  5. Before making the pan cakes add the baking soda & mix the batter properly
  6. Heat the griddle, grease it with clarified butter, add a spoonful of batter & prepare the pancakes on medium flame.
  7. Cover the pancake
  8. You will see some bubbles forming on the pancakes, flip the pancake after 5 minutes. Cook until done.
  9. Serve immediately with honey & fresh strawberries.
    The above recipe will yield 12 pancakes.
